Simon Says Stamp HUGE Blog candy challenge....Tilda says Happy Birthday to you!


I made this card with Iris' great sketch over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog...they have a great challenge this week and a HUGE blog candy up for grabs! I have my eye on the fabulous Spica pens set...not to mention all the other fabulous goodies! Definitely worth checking out and playing along!!!!

I teamed up my two faves Tilda and BasicGrey...I thought I would use my June Bug papers! I do love them but find them a bit challenging to work with...so this card is a little bright for my liking but it is growing on me!

I stamped this sweet Tilda from the Yummy in my Tummy collection on Neenah paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with my Copics. I am especially happy with her hair but I didn't write down the numbers of the Copics I used....duh! I cut her out and pop-dotted her on the Nestie ovals.
I deviated from the sketch a bit and moved the sentiment to the other side of the card. It just seemed a bit too bunched up with the big Prima flowers that I put there...the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and guess where I got it....that's right from Simon Says Stamp...they have a great selection of my fave rub-ons, so I stocked up! I picked this birthday sentiment as it was Heidi's B-day on Thursday! Happy belated b-day, Heidi!!!!

I added some buttons from my stash, Scrappers Floss and the ribbon is from Micheals!

Well, there you have it...another card...I'm on a roll but I think it is going to be short lived as the weekend is drawing to an end and I will have to get back to the daily grind,lol!!! Not looking forward to packing lunches...I just dread it,smile!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek and if you have today off then I hope you have a great Labour day!

Hugs,

Tara said...

You really are on a roll T, another beauty of a card! I too am struggling a bit with these papers (must be a Tara thing, lol) but you did a perfect job with them. The way I see it, we are Basic Grey teamies so we have to buy the papers whether we like 'em or not right?
Big hugs, T xxxx

WOW Tara this is just gorgeous!! I love all the different colors and all the details are fabulous!! I have to go back for another look! Love this image as well!!
Funny that you ordered the Catslife stamps as I found them looking for something similar to the ones you use!! LOL Really ~ my printer is such a pain so I had to look for ones I could stamp as opposed to printing!! (If you want any more that you didn't order and I have them let me know and I will gladly stamp some off and send them to you!
Hope all is well and that you have a fabulous week!!
:)Kathy
