So Sweet Tilda

Well it's another Monday, don't I sound excited. LOL!! I did get to play over the weekend so that is something to be excited about! Last week I taught my distress ink class at my local scrapbook store and it reminded me of my love for distress inks. So I decided to play this weekend with them.


Actually I was also creating for my next class over at A Scrapbook Store and More. This is what I came up with.... SO sweet and simple... at least I hope. This is Sweetie Tilda from the new Sweet Rainbow Collection. I had to have her, yes I know, I have to have them all BUT this little Tilda looks so serene and soft. Which lead me to such soft paper and coloring. Totally up my alley! She is just precious!



Now I know most gate folds have the "front panels" open to the left, but I'm sure you understand why this one opens to the right. LOL! I had to change my flowers up too. I had a beautiful handmade flower all set for this but it was too crowding and the card wouldn't open right. No worries though I will just have to add it somewhere else, coming soon...
