Once Upon A Time...

Hello Again Dear Readers!  Here I am with post #2 this morning and this time I am here with my Design Team make for the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog.  Our theme this week is FLOWERS and the challenge will run until Friday, April 17th at 11:55 a.m. CST.

I've made something a bit different than my usual card with a stamped Tilda or Edwin.  This time I wanted the die cuts to take center stage and so I have put together this simple yet sweet frame art featuring Magnolia DooHickeys dies.  The Pansy's and small clouds are from the latest DooHickeys Club release, Le Jardin.  I also have included the Castle from the 2013 Once Upon A Time collection and several clouds from the Cloud and Flag set, Sweet Rainbow 2011.

I was hoping maybe the side views would show some of the sparkle.  The photos do not do the coloring and glitter any justice.  The clouds and flower centers are all sparkly but it's so hard to tell.

The sweet little bird is one of a pair called Little Summer Birds from the 2013 Sea Breeze collection.  Everything was cut out in white cardstock and colored with Distress Inks for a softer, kind of dreamier look.

Here we go.  These are much better shots of the sparkle.

 I have the castle sitting on the clouds but I sort of covered that up with foliage.  This shot actually shows that color a bit better.

Thank You so much for taking the time to visit.  All supplies not mentioned above are listed at the bottom of this post.  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows.
♥ Laura C.
