Tilda with Big Ribbon - La Vie En Rose

Hi everyone:

Today I'd like to show you an easel card with Tilda With Big Ribbon from the latest So Special collection. The shopping window 'Boutique' comes from the last year's Magnolia Bon Voyage collection.

Even if my card is all in pink, it’s not a Valentine's card :-) I had created this card for a contest here in France where the theme was New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t make any resolutions but wanted to participate :-) I remembered this beautiful satin ribbon I had in my stash and I wanted to use it on my card. So I computer generated the sentiment as a New Year’s Resolution to match my ribbon: “Voir la vie en rose”, which means something like "See Life in Rosy Hues". I’m not sure here if it makes sense to all of you English speakers, I hope it does, lol. “La vie en rose” is also a well know signature song by a French singer (Edith Piaf), performed by many other arstists as well. If you youtoube it, some of you will surely recognize the melody.

I'm entering my card to the following challenge: Wild Orchid Crafts - Let's Get Sentimental

Silvie, your cards are just amazing! I am always suprised that your next card is even more beautiful than the last, if you can say so as all are just gorgeous!!! I know "La vie en rose"...of course! It is well know here in Austria too and I have also seen the movie about Edith Piaf's life. In Austria you say you can watch life through pink shaded glasses....so perhaps this suits as well a bit ;) Le card est tout magnifique!!!

Your coloring of Tilda is perfect. I love her rosey red cheeks. Her dress and the bow in her hair looks awesome. You sure do inspire me.
