60's Tilda

Happy Saturday, Everyone!  Well, I guess most of you heard about the Tsunami Alert the state of Hawaii was on from early this morning due to the devasting earthquake in Chile.  Coastal areas were closed and people sent to higher grounds, shopping malls closed, no postal delivery except for areas not considered critical, etc., etc., and lots to watch on TV as the anticipated time of 11:04AM got closer.  We're all so happy this is rather behind us now but the state did continue to take precautions about having people enter the waters for a while. 
Okay, now for my card today.  February was a month with lots of birthdays and goings on for such a short month.  I am so behind in my projects and still scrambling!  I made another BD card for another gal who loves anything purple.  I decided to use 60's Tilda from the A Little Yummy for Your Tummy Collection.

I apologize for the poor quality of the picture.  My camera battery was just dieing on me.  The sentiment in the "Elegant Heart" from the Raising the Ceiling Collection says:  "Happy Birthday" "Sweet Birthday Treat" and I can't remember who makes this stamp.
I (again) used my Sizzix Heart Card Bigz XL die for the card base.  The heart lifts up.  My card base and the heart portion is from Bazzill, and the inside DP is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies. 
Tilda is colored with Copics:  Body:  E50 E00 R00;
Hair: E29 E25 E34; Dress: V01 V15 V17
I also used Sizzix Corner Flourish #2 die and cut it half to arrange it around the bottom of the heart.
Ribbon and flowers from my stash.
I'm trying to finish another project before February comes to an end (tomorrow!). 
Thank you for stopping by to visit with this cute 60's Tilda!  I hope you all have a fun-filled weekend and I'll be visiting blogs again shortly to see all your wonderful creations.  Until next time, stay safe, keep healthy, and enjoy life every day.
