Tilda All Dressed Up


Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great, did the usual chores, errands and am getting totally addicted to Facebook's Farmville game. If you would like to be my neighbor, let me know - I could use more.

Someone very dear to me is struggling with depression. She could use your prayers - many thanks in advance. I am planning to help her out with some activities that are hard for her to do, in hopes of lifting her spirits and not be alone as often.


Now for today's card. For some reason, I really struggled with this card. I guess we all have those days, LOL. I had a hard time deciding on what embellishments to use. I used black for the edges since it seemed to help the colors and design pop out more.
Hope you like it....
