JM #78, FS #125 & WOC #8...Tilda Walks for a CURE!!!!


Hey crafty friends! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Well, I sure am, I played with my new computer and got everything all set up they way I like it and I got some time today to play along with some of my fave challenges too! It has been so long since I've been able to do that and I really enjoyed myself! This week's challenge over at Just Magnolia is to "Think Pink" as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so, I definitely wanted to play along! They also have a beautiful sketch over at Friday Sketchers by Jaque and the challenge is Pastels over at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!

For my card I decided to use this sweet new Tilda with Lace Flag...I just love her to bits!!! I got the idea of her walking for a CURE which is one of the great sentiments on a Melissa Frances rub-on sheet! She really looks like she is walking with a purpose, doesn't she!? The word "hope" that I rubbed onto the flag and bottom sentiment are also from the same Melissa France Breast Cancer sheet!


I coloured Tilda with my Copics and had fun taking my time with it and ended up doing that dotted shadow technique that my BG DT Chris Dark created...now I am not nearly as good at it as she is but I am quite happy with how it turned out! I used some BG Oliva papers from the 6x6 pad as I just love it and its PINK!!! I also used some Prima and WOC flowers, half pearls and ribbon and cotton lace to embellish! The Breat Cancer ribbon in the bottom cornor is a QK die and I cut it out from the QK adhesive chipboard material a few times and stacked them as it isn't very thick chipboard. I then cut one from the Pink BG paper and inked the edges. I punched a hold with my Crop-O-Dile and then added the BG glazed brad!

Well, there you have it....my first post on my new Mac and it was a breeze...I know I am going to love doing up my posts now! Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Have a great week....happy stampin'!
