TILDA WITH FLOWER POT


Happy Sunday!  I was able to find some time to sit and make a card, and decided to play with "Tilda With Flower Pot" from the new Butterfly Dreams collection.  They are all so beautiful and I love each one equally!  I have a passion for butterflies and this collection is now my most favorite (so far!).  So here is my simple card:

After looking at the stamped image for a while, I "thought" I saw two teeny-tiny butterflies on the flowers in the flower pot.  Maybe I "wanted" them to be there because I love butterflies!   So I colored them in yellow with my Copics and you tell me if you think they really are butterflies or not LOL!
I immediately fell in love with this DP by s.e.i. "Couture/Chintz" and couldn't wait to add a Tilda.  The pic has a glare because this DP has a metallic sheen over the blue/aqua flowers.  I did not want to cover the paper too much so I kept my embellishments to a minimum, and there's not even a ribbon!  I chose instead to use some black crochet lace trim to keep the balance with the black mat piece (PTI True Black CS) under the PTI Aqua Mist CS mat piece.  I'm so happy I was able to get several stamps from this collection from Diana's Magnolia-licious online store.  You can, too, by simply clicking on the store icon on my sidebar.  

I truly appreciate your taking the time to stop by today.  Have a great day and have fun doing what you love.

Maggie Hugs,

What a beautiful card, Cami. Purple/lavender with a little black accent looks so elegant. If those are not butterflies, they should be. Very sweet.
Did you make some of those flowers? That large spray looks gorgeous.

Cami, how funny that we have the same papers. I love your Tilda in her coat it is so springy. I think the black looks awesome with the paper, I might see if I can get it to work with my scraps. I love the black accents around Tilda. Very pretty card. We have great taste.

Eulanda said...

CAMI! This is absolutely striking!! I love the black accent and I get a kick out of you calling this simple. It doesn't look like it but maybe it's the corner piece and gorgeous bouquet. And I might agree with you on those butterflies. I think they are what you want them to be. hee hee Luv this new line of Maggie's too. Can't wait to color more of them up!! Hugs!!
