Mini Tilda Blowing Hearts on a Big Card!


Hello fellow Maggie Lovers!  How are you faring?  Ready for the weekend? Today I want to share a card I made for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge that is a Recipe and calls for hearts, pink, silver, white and green if needed for leaves.  I'm still in a funk and lacking some mojo after vacation but was able to play and make a fast card.  It looks out of balance (like me, hehehe) but here it is:
Pardon the glare on my pic.  I tried taking several pics but because the hearts are silver and like foil, it was hard to get a good shot.
My card is 5.5" square for PTI select white CS that I love because of its sturdiness.  The silver heart on pink DP is from Target that I bought when I was in L.A. having fun with Suzan.
The silver paper I used for the mat and for the scallop hearts are from my stash (some paper from Paris), and the white hearts are die-cut from PTI CS.  I embossed the large heart with my Cuttlebug EF but you can't see it in the pic.  I also die-cut a silver flourish from the Tim Holtz die.  I ended up using this mini Tilda that I got from Diana's Magnolia-licious store (click on my sidebar) because I love her and don't have the regular sized image (yet!).  I made a double bow using both white and pink organdy ribbon with silver edges using my Bow Easy, added a key charm from my stash, and the beautiful lace trim is from Jo-Ann's when Suzan and I went shopping (thank you for taking me all over the place Suzan!!!).  Here's a look at the inside of my card:

I left it very simple and just added the other piece of the flourish (the die cuts two different shapes) to kinda dress up the jotting area.
Well, that's it for my card.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for all the lovely, encouraging comments you wonderful ladies leave for me.  I truly appreciate it and am grateful for all the cyber friends I have made out there.
Enjoy your weekend, and I hope you get some crafting time in.
