Sparkle and Glitter Dinner Tilda

I have been working on my little "Tilda" project for about a week, and finally completed her.  The Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels Seven" available at Lora's (Canadian) online store, which have been in my case for over a year finally got used.

I decided upon an Easel card using iridescent white for the pages and shaded them with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, to give  depth. Dinner Tilda, which is available at Magnolia-licious was coloured with copics: B91; B93; B95; R00; R20; E00; C01; and a white glaze gel pen for the pearls and shoes.  Icy Stickles were used to add some bling to the silk flowers, ribbons, beads and the little flowers inside.  I wrote a very tiny letter on the book page, picturing Tilda writing in her diary while waiting for Edwin to take her out to dinner.

The inside is another Magnolia stamp available at Magnolia-licious. I used the EK Success punch for the scrolls and flowers and Martha Stewart's Sunburst border punch for the sentiment and for the outside decorations, distressing the edges with SU Pretty in Pink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
"Totally Tilda  Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #6" 
" Mojo Monday Sketch 159"
"Secret Crafter Challenge #103", which happens to be an easel card challenge
"Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #79" - Layer it on!

Hope you like it, and will take the time to leave  a comment - it is always enjoyable knowing that someone appreciates the work they see.

Remember, "Stamp up a Storm, Ink up a Wish and send it on to brighten someone's day"
