One card...soooo many Challenges!

Hello Ladies! Let it be said that I have never been known as timid!
But even this is quite a stretch for me!!! Thought I'd enter this little "Lady" in several different challenges.
Just Magnolia: used their sketch
Wild Orchard Crafts: wanted some "Lovely Lace"
Simon Says: Use something "Dottie" & Prisma Flowers
Fussy & Fancy: Pink & Black
Stamp Insanity: Pink & Black
Dutch Dare: Anything Goes
Paper Play: Anything Goes
I can not believe how addictive this cardmaking could be! I have been scrapbooking and teaching at various scrapstores locally for years and in all that time I stayed away from stamping, and card making; suspecting it could be very consuming. Then I met Tilda and a few other "girly" stamps: ordered some copics and that was That! THis is what it has led me to....Dinners may have been late a couple of times, but my oh my, I've been having FUN!!!!! Would love to have some feedback from all you talented ladies...have a great evening! Bernet

Lights, Cameras, Action! Tilda takes the stage....

Thought it was time to share another creation! I did this one for Angie Hunt's challenge (my first one, a little nerverous!) which calls for shades of brown and red and preferably something for the Holidays. I'm thinking maybe "The Nutcracker"???? or is that too much of a stretch? In any case, I had a great time
with this little prima donna! She was so cute that I thought she deserved a "real" stage with curtains, and floodlights. She also got a jewel studded tiara and more jewels on her dress and shoes; and of course she had to have flowers for such a brilliant performance. Can't you just imagine her going for another curtain call???? I used everything from my stash from ribbons, papers, gems, and flowers, the only thing new was Tilda (for me...) I would love it if you let me know what you think...TIA Bernet

Lady Bug Tilda for a very special Lady

Hello again Ladies! Want to start off by thanking all you wonderful ladies who left a comment last week about my first attempts at copics, easel cards and posting. You were all very kind and I appreciated the encouragement! Now for round two!!!
This little Tilda was so much fun to do! As she is for someone very special to me, I had to bling her up a bit. Rhinestones on the corners and on DP (which is from Daisy Bucket)and pearls on the arches (MS)and on the label (spellbinders). Tilda is colored with copics and popped up for deminsion. I added flowers from the UK and a double organza bow. Had a silver ladybug bead I wanted to incorporate, so decided to make a stickpin and put it on that, although you can't tell very well from the really is adorable in person. Finished it all off with some homemade glimmer mist (again thank you for the great tutorials!) Think she'll like it?
