Groovy Tilda!!



I made this card this morning - I was up WAY too early when Tim left for work and couldn't get back to sleep!! UGH!!!! I used an image I received from one of the ladies on Tilda & Friends yahoo group, but I do have this stamp and the matching Edwin on their way to me as we speak!!! WHEEEEEE!!!! I think she is roughly translated as "Tilda in Petticoats" but I think she reminds me of a GREASE character! One of my favourite all time movies!!!! All the Magnolia names are in Swedish so I think we English speakers do our best to translate them according to what they look like (scary thought! We're probably WAYYY off on some of them!) I used Mellow Moss as my base, then the DP is from Arctic Frog Lilly Pads - "take a hike" collection and the flowers are from my EK Success groovy flower punch. I used my nestabilities for the ovals (again taking a risk as Tilda was already stamped, I had to make sure the oval wouldn't move! EEK!!) and ribbon that my Secret Sister from SCS last round gave me! The pink rhinestones are from Michael's ($1.50) and of course, stickles on her wings!!! The sentiment is from MFT "Meet me at the Cafe". I coloured Tilda using my SU markers (Mellow moss, regal rose; blush blossom; so saffron; pretty in pink) and a silver gel pen for her button and buckle.
