Two Tilda Cards


I carved out some time today to play with the Magnolia stamps from the recent stamp club release.  I've been super busy recently and haven't had time to do any crafting outside of my DT work.  Since we skipped a birthday party today (Peanut is sick), Peanut and I crafted instead.

I want to share two cards with the same Water Lily Tilda stamp.  The first card is clean and simple.  I'm borrowing this style from Delphine, who inspires me with every card she makes.  I love the use of white space.  I stamped Tilda and the sentiment on white card and doodled a border.  I added a little purple cardstock frame to bring out the purple in her dress.  


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Midweek Magnolias #11 - big white space
2. Tilda's Town #1 - anything goes

For my second card, I used the same image, but went in the opposite direction from clean and simple.  I added all sorts of embellies.  I was inspired by the colors in Yanitza's card - pink and yellow looks so fresh.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. TOMIC #50 - sketch + inspiration photo + use yellow
2. Crafty Catz #133 - girly time
3. Allsorts #155 - buttons and bows

Happy Crafting!
