Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 93

Good Morning my lovelies.

I'm back today with a card for the new challenge at Totally Tilda where the theme for the next fortnight is

Right up my street!

Tilda With Fantasy Flower has been coloured with DI markers.
The papers are MME The Sweetest Thing ~ Lavender.
Sentiment from PTI and a few pearls...job's done!

I cased the card from Faye HERE ...thank you very much for the inspiration Faye :)

Our lovely and very generous sponsor for this challenge is

And the prize for one lucky winner will be either a ribbon kit or a £10 voucher for the store.

Before I go:
I've not been around as much - just in case you hadn't noticed!  
I have a lot of stuff going on this year and there will be a couple of periods when I won't be able to make any cards. With this in mind, I'm working ahead with challenge cards so I won't be totally AWOL for prolonged periods of time.
This year has plenty of exciting things in store for me to look forward to, starting in May, but I'll tell you more closer to the time.

To all the Mums out there...Happy Mothers Day! I hope you are all being thoroughly spoilt.
I have postponed the celebrations for a couple of weeks until the boy comes home from Uni, and then I shall be having hugs, lots of hugs, lots and lots of hugs.

Thanks for looking.


  1. This card is beautiful Elaine. Your colouring is just divine. Stunning. Happy Sunday. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. Gorgeous Elaine, those papers are lush!

  3. Elaine this is gorgeous. Your colouring is always superb.

  4. Oh what a very beautiful card!! you do CAS to perfection lovely!

  5. I do like the way you have grounded her on the sentiment. The tiny hint of yellow in the bouquet she is holding echoes that in the patterned paper beautifully. The polka dots of the pale blue paper are mimicked nicely in her dress too. Hope you have a lovely day even if the lad isn't there.

  16. Hi Elaine, beautiful as always, love the colours you have chosen yet still very delicate. The sentiment is gorgeous, just like her. I've looked for that die which you always use to stamp on but with no luck so far, I think you said it was a La La one. Nice to hear that something good will happen soon and have a great time spoiling your boy once he gets back home. It's always lovely to see a new card appear, but I realise how busy your life can be seeing as the lottery hasn't come up for you yet. Kind regards Trish
