Tilda Day Dreaming.....

Hope today finds you all well and happy.

I seem to be losing some of my mojo for I am struggling with coming up with some 'wow' cards. I play around with different things but just cannot come up with anything that makes me think 'wow'. So today, I have a 'so-so' card to show you, I kept with a Christmas theme. I made my flowers, Cuttlebugged to create texture and inked the edges. I created a frame for Tilda so that she can pop out more, added pearls around it and it is speckled with white but it is hard to see. I love this new border punch (well at least it is new for me) from Martha Stewart.

Well that is about all.... I would REALLY LOVE to hear from you on what I could have done to make it a 'wow' card.

DP - Scribble Scrabble
Stamp - Tilda with Flower Jeans
Punches - Martha Stewart,EK Success & All Night Media
Others - Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug, pearls, ribbon, Prismacolor markers

All things are heaven sent.


  1. Hi Karen! I think your card is very pretty just the way it is. You've given a lot of texture on the mats, your coloring is beautiful, and I love the ribbon treatment on the bottom where you cinched the ribbon. Don't be too hard on yourself! I love this card! Hugs, Cami

  5. Karen!
    This IS a WOW card! Your paper and colours are bright and the texture you have added with the CB and your white flecks of paint as well as your flowers are all great! Also the two frames around your fabulously coloured Tilda and the white of the border punch and your beautiful ribbon are all outstanding. Stand back and look at it later - I am sure you will see it then! It's gorgeous.......
