Ticket to be Adorable!

Hi Everybody,

A I mentioned earlier, I had lots of fun designing some card bases at home before coming to the cottage and stamped some images to colour while up here and today I have a one of those cards for you! When I saw this paper by First Edition called Blush it reminded me of the nightgowns that my mom used to make for us when we were little so when I came across this little Tilda I had a perfect match.  I have entered her in The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Give Peace a Chance, Paper Sundae's Challenge - Feminine Flair, Crafty Cardmakers - Sketch.

  She was stamped on neenah cardstock with memento ink and then coloured with copics.  I used a SB die to mat her on and then cut the bottom to make a ledge to sit her on.  There is a border punch on the blue piece of paper but it didn't show up well in the picture.  Her nightgown has been paper pieced and the ticket has been stamped and then embossed for dimension. I used some sparkly pink ribbon, rhinestones and prima flowers to finish her off!

I grew up with three sisters and a mom who could perform magic with a sewing machine. I remember having many outfits that matched our curtains or our comforter or something else in the house.  My mom wouldn't waste one scrap!  I wish I could find the picture of my little sister and I on the sofa and our outfits match the drape above our head! lol Thanks for taking some time to spend with me today!  I really appreciate it!!
