Red, white, and blue Tilda with some pink too


This card serves many many purposes (my favorite kind). It fits the magnolia-licious color challenge of blue, red, and pink, the just magnolia challenge to use paper piecing on a card, the roses on paper was to use flowers on a card you've entered in another challenge. Well, this one has flowers on the paper and on her cake. I think I may also use it for a few more purposes. I'm really happy with how it turned out. This Tilda with Birthday Cake is one of my newest stamps even though I think she is an older image. I picked a background paper from Sassafras Lass that had the colors red, blue, and pink in it and went from there. I found the polka dot paper in a pack I've had forever. The thing about paper piecing is you have to find paper with a small enough pattern for it to repeat in the small area you have. I was glad that all 3 of the main colors made it into the dress. I cut Tilda out with a nestabilitie and matted her on a larger one. I added a scalloped border out of core'dinations and added a bow made out of tulle. I love tulle and I bought several rolls of it thinking I would use it for something and this is the first time I've actually used it. I think it is my favorite part of the card and I will definitely start using it more often.
