Shake, Rattle and Roll Tilda

 As soon as I saw the challenge of shaker cards, hosted this month by the uber-talented Barb Hardeman on the  Magnolia-licioushighlights challenge blog,  I thought of Tilda with Autumn Leaves rolling in the leaves and having a giggling good time.   Then the idea to make her roll and move came into play with a spinner card with Tilda.  I had so much fun coloring this little Tilda - just the look on her face is enough to make me giggle. Diana at Magnolia-licious has her in stock only a mouse click away.

I used a discontinued color of SU to make the background (Marigold Morning), punched the borders using EK Success English Ivy border punch and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany.  The Ribbon is from my stash and is absolutely gorgeous because the leaves are actually outlined in gold, the wired edge of the ribbon is copper. I cut some of the leaves out to embellish the paper.  The shaker box is filled with punched tiny  leaves that I colored and distressed with Distress Inks.

I've had this card made for about a week, but my PC was in ICU and my Laptop has an issue with blogger for some reason. So, it has been sitting on my desk shaking to get out of the

I'm really pleased with the outcome of the spinner / shaker card. It is a little larger (5 1/2" x 6"), but I will make a custom envelope for her and send her on her way.  I will post a picture of the inside later as we have an appointment in a few minutes.......see you then.

Remember,  Stamp up a Storm - Ink up a Wish, and send it on to make someone's day!
