Papertake Weekly - Anything goes with option of shaped card

Hi friends and happy Tuesday!! Hope you had a wonderful long weekend and was able to fit some crafting into the mix of enjoying the weather! It's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week it's anything goes with an option of making a shaped card. We are sponsored this week by both Lili of the Valley AND Wild Orchid Crafts! Gosh, I want to enter!! LOL! 


For my card, I chose to use this adorable new image #378 Chess Tilda and I think she's about the cutest little thing EVER!!! I love her! She's from the new Winner takes it All collection and she's available right now over at Magnolia-licious!! Diana has the best selections of Magnolia stamps in stock and ready for shipping! So be sure and visit Magnolia-licious for all your Maggie needs! She's colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut out and popped up on that cute banner I made with the die from Whimsy Stamps and some twine.

 I used the T series of grays and E21, 23, and 25 for her jeans. Her skin is E11, 01, and 00 with chalk on the cheeks. I was playing with different mixes of colors on her hair, so I honestly couldn't tell you what I ended up using. I used a red Spica pen for her glasses.  The papers are some I've had for at least a year. It's by Wild Asparagas and it's matted with Bazzill cardstock. The shaped card was cut using the Expression and Elegant Edges cartridge. I just picked one of the frames and then scored and folded it in half. The frame behind Tilda was cut with Oval nesties and Petite oval Nesties, and then machine stitched.  The sentiment is also from Whimy Stamps School Yard Fun. This group of sentiments is awesome for the new Winner takes it all collection!  Oh, see that sporadic zig zag stitching around my card? That's inspiration from my good friend Regina Easter that owns The Cutting Cafe'! Regina has been doing that for years, and I always thought it looked so cool! So this time, I took inspiration from her and gave it a shot. I like the way it turned out!  The three pearls down in the bottom corner were made with a pearl pen. LOVE those pearl pens!!

So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly and check out what deliciousness my teamies have cooked up for your pleasure! Then we'd LOVE it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and I hope to see you back again soon!!

Please keep an eye out! I've reached 1,000 followers and it's my Birthday month! That means there is some really sweet smelling goodness in the air!

Entered into the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant - sketch
Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar - anything goes with option of circles
Magnolia Down Under - Frame it

Oh, this card is so stinkin' cute!!! I love that Tilda image ~ first time I've seen her colored up. I have her, but haven't played with her yet ~ I'll have to get busy! I love the card shape ~ never thought of doing that with the Elegant Edges cart, so thanks for the idea! I NEED that banner die ~ love it! There's just nothing about this card that I don't love!!

Gorgeous and what a lot of work went into this... your attention to detail is astounding and it shows. All those little extras... the stitching, hearts on the pennants, twine, pearls... wow, a lot of time went into this.
Love your colouring and the shape of this card is so neat.

Sweet little card Sharon. Love this little cutie with her glasses & how you perched her up on that wonderful banner. I LOVE those pearls & can't believe they were made with a pen. They look perfect & if you hadn't told us I would have thought they were the flat backed half pearls from a package. You KNOW I will have to get me some now to try ! Beautiful work my friend...
Hugs, Janie
