Tilda's BIrthday Card

Midweek Magnolia has a sketch as a challenge this week and I decided to join, something I don't do frequently enough.

I know, it's a square card as usual, but since I make most of my cards for Operation Write Home (this is no exception) and they request A2 size cards, I made some minor adjustments to make my creation fit the challenge. I hope this fits the bill. The flowers were made with a Sizzix Bigz flower die and skewered together with white brads, and the papers were all chosen from my ridiculously large stash. The dark pink background paper was embossed with Cuttlebug's Asian folder and the corner embellishments are the dots from some chipboard alphabet i's. Tilda has just finished her friend's birthday card and is patiently waiting for the postman to pick it up.


A peel-off sentiment finishes it off for a pretty simple rendition of a very pretty sketch.
