Have you heard? A new Papertake Weekly challenge

Happy Tuesday! Monday is done and over with, and the week is marching on. It's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week it's a fabulous sketch from the uber talented Dawny! We're being sponsored by Dies to Die For. I skewed the sketch just a little with the text and the height of my images. I had SO MUCH fun making this card! I just love lots of dimension on a card, and I love making scenic cards. So you can imagine I enjoyed this one!

I used one of the new stamps from Magnolia-licious in a collection called Raising The Ceiling. She's #372 Love News Tilda. I don't think I've seen this cute little Tilda used at all, and I don't understand cause she's adorable! And she's perfect for any kind of "news" or "announcement" type of card. Along with her, I used one of the houses from #511 Edwin's Town. I ADORE this stamp and will use it many, many times! The houses can be cut apart and used individually, just like I did here. This adorable tree is also a Magnolia stamp, but Diana doesn't have it in stock right now. If you're interested, please just drop her an email. The stamps are all colored with Copic markers and then cut out. The house is popped up from the tree, and then Tilda is popped up even higher than the house. It didn't look right to have the house just sitting there, so I VERY CLUMSILY made a little rock walkway (close one eye and squint and you might be able to tell what I meant it to be!!) up to the doorway of the house.



I added a beautiful silk ribbon tied with my Bow Easy, and attached a cute little birdie charm to it. The papers are from a new line of Cosmo Cricket (I think it was from Garden Variety, but not sure as I used both pieces of each pattern from my pack). Cardstock is Bazzill and used lots of pop dots on this card! The sentiment is computer generated. Heres a shot that shows the dimension a little better.


Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the fabulous designs by the rest of the Design Team, and then grab your paper and glue and join in on the challenge! You just might get lucky and win a fabulous prize!


Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!! Hugs!

How perfect is this card...absolute perfection my Dear Sharon. I wasn't too sure about this Tilda but you have brought her to life and I can see using her for many occasions. I think you are the Master at creating scenes and I love the pathway!!!
I must try making one of those bows with the gorgeous silk ribbon you sent, I have the Bow Easy and am hoping it lives up to its name . Must watch some Youtube videos on it.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation.
