Celebrate!!

I'm a little late but.... I made this card using Claudia's sketch from last weeks Friday Sketchers # 11...Thanks Claudia for a great sketch!!

The Gorgeous little Tilda in this card is called "VA08 Tilda med ballonger" You can find her in the Magnolia Spring/Summer 2008 Collection at the Magnolia site. Magnolia stamps can be ordered from the Magnolia Store.......Phebe at The Town Scrapper.......and Diana right here.

The sentiment is from a clear stamp set called "Scrappy Cats". The scroll in the corner is from "Fontwerks"

I used diamond glaze on the balloons. The orange center on the flowers is actually a tack from the dollar store....I used a wire clippers to cut off the back. The trim is created with a Martha Stewart punch. The cute little pearl bauble I have in the corner is from Inge...Thanks Inge!! I love those pearly little baubles.

I used prismacolor pencils (oderless mineral spirits) and h20's to color Tilda.

Ink - Verafine Black, bashful blue, creamy caramel, pumpkin pie, orchid pastel chalk ink

Paper - whisper white, my minds eye, fiskars, treasures

Accessories - diamond glaze, acrylic paint, stickles, stitching, glitter, martha stewart punch, nesties, scalloped scissors, ribbon, tack, bauble, flowers.
