I have been busy

honestly :)

New one for you today.

I've had some Tilda stamps for over a year now, but have never used them (I know, I know!) and thought it might be time to ink them up.

I'm a simple card maker.  I dont really do "complicated" cards that have lots of elements.  Cards that use two different patterned papers are a challenge for me, but I've seen sooo many beautiful cards that are embellished with flowers, florishes and everything else that I've decided that - now and again - I need to push the boat out and try something out of my comfort zone so I placed a couple of orders and got myself some stuff.

Hence this card.  Its not as "complicated" as I'd like but for a first try I think its pretty good :)

Gold card from Staples (?), Cream textured card from Papermania and White Paper from Paper Mill.  The patterned paper is from the DCWV Spring Glitter stack, the gold ribbon is Anita's, flowers (and heart pin) from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Martha Stewart Doiley punch was used.

The Tilda as Bride stamp was inked in Black Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers.  The sentiment is from JustRite and features in their Wedding Set.  You cant see it very well in the photo but her "crown" and flowers have been glittered using some ultra fine gold nail art glitter that I had lying around (and that I spilt early this morning...nightmare!)
