Entering this easel card for Die Cuts r us Challenge which is to make a project inspired by the colours in the DCRU image. Have to say I just love these colours and making this card was such a pleasure.

Papers used are all from Pink Petticoat a lovely digi download shop which I found a long time ago and can’t get enough of them, I can always find a colour match for my projects.

Also for the Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge paper pleating, which I love and there is a fabulous tutorial by Mina.

Tilda was coloured with Copics and Pro Markers then sat her on two nesties. I stitched the paper pleating with a scalloped stitch to hold it all together. Have to say my dressmaking comes in handy at times like this but it is much easier with material than paper. Lots of matting and layering with pleating, scallops and ribbon. MS punch was used for the pleating edges and the waste pleats were added to the bottom of the card.

Stamping up punches and sentiment, along with an art impressions stamp at the top of the card, flowers, brads, gems and dew drops were all added to make Tilda look oh so pretty.

I opened the card out full length and took a picture to show you how pretty the colours are.020008010046
