Distressed Tilda!

As soon as I seen this challenge over at Just Magnolia it was a given that I do it!! LOL I needed a card for my Aunt who loves sunflowers so I went with this Tilda!! I just love her! I have also added extra sunflowers on the bottom for the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar which is floral fantasy.For my distressing I have sanded all the edges of my dp, roughed up the edges of my cardstock with my scissors and sponged brushed corduroy on the edges of my flowers. After I was finished I thought my card was a little contradicting with fall colors and my A Summer Day sentiment, haha, oh well! When I see sunflowers I always think of these colors ~ can't help it!

Paper: MME
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: Button and twine ~ stash, flower ~ prima, sentiment circle ~ Catslife Press, lace ~ JoAnn's and pearls ~ Micheals


Well thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look! I appreciate all your lovely comments on my cards ~ so nice of all of you:)
Have a great day and hopefully the weather is nice where you are!

Such nice cards! I haven't tried distressing yet, and I am a bit reluctant. Every time I see what you've done, it makes me want to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

I realy like this card. I love the colours, they do remind me of the late summerdays when the grain is high and the sun low.

Love,
Malie

ooo love this Kathy (I love sunflowers too- think it must be the colours) and the colours could be sunset on a summers evening . . so it's fine ;) Sun is finally shining here today too, enjoy yours. x

Sandy said...

She's absolutely adorable! Definitely my favorite Tilda because I love Sunflowers too. My kitchen is red barns and sunflowers because of the country feel. That's what your card has...a great warmth of colors and sentiments and it's laid out perfect. All of your cards are awesome and I'm not sure why you aren't on all these fancy stamps company's Design Teams but they need to wake up!!! You're one of my all time favorite Designers!
