SWEET TILDA - Thinking of you

Hi everybody, this is my 1st Easel card. I used Sweet Tilda from Magnolia Raising the Ceiling Collection. I colored her with copics and she was fun to color! The most difficult part was the stitching, lol. I don’t have a sewing machine, so I have to do the stitching by hand :-( So here she is:

The supplies:
Stamps : Sweet Tilda from Magnolia Raising the Ceiling Collection 2010, colored with Copics
Sentiment 1 (Thinking of you) is from CTMH Tender Tags set
Sentiment 2 (My dear, …) is Stampin’ up

Paper: Memory Box-Sprout Collection

Embellishments : Paper Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Flatback Pearls, Ribbon, Ranger Stickles

Tools : Spellbinders Nestabilities: Scalloped Ovals, Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch, Martha Stewart Frond Branch punch, Fiskars Tear Edge Ruler, 3D foam dots, Ranger Ink Blending Tool, Embossing Powder (for the sentiment), needle & metallic thread

Inks : Distress Inks: Victoria Velvet (for the punched border), old paper & vintage photo (for the distressed edges on the scalloped ovals), shabby shutters & peeled paint (leaves), Ranger Adirondack wild plum (for the 'torn' background cardstock)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
