Magnolia-licious August DT Sketch




Hi Everyone,


Where oh where has this month gone? My grandson Dakota started back to school last week and my granddaughter Blaize starts back Monday. The summer sure did fly by. Anyway I final got my card for the August DT Sketch finished here is the link to the web site.


The sketch this month is by Becca Feeken if you have not visited Becca's blog you are really missing out she is a very talented lady and has some wonderful tutorials on her blog. I followed one of Becca's tutorials to make the folded flower on top of my small circles. They are so easy to make and they can make a fabulous bow for a gift if you make them bigger. Here is a link to Becca's tutorial for these flowers: http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/spellbinder-ruffled-flower-tutorial/.


The design paper that I used was Basic Grey: Urban Prairie


I ordered my Tilda from Sweden but since I did that I found out that we can request a Tilda if Diana does not have her and Diana will do her best to get it for us so from now on that is what I will do. Diana has a large inventory of Tilda's and fabulous customer service. So buy your Tilda's here .


I used Stickles on Tilda's wings, hair bows and strawberry. On Tilda's crown, shoes and centers of my flowers I brushed on Shimmerz Blingz Gold Glimmer.


I made the center of my flowers with my new I-top tool it seemed to work very well.


Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my card. Oh that reminds me I tried to follow Claudia Rosa tutorial on how to edit your pictures. If you missed Claudia's tutorial you can find it here. I hoping that my pictures will look a little better.


I would love to here what you think of my card.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate all of you!


Hugs,


Nancy

Love this card and the paper flowers you made! What is an I-top tool and where do you get it from? I tried making these flowers and had a hard time pleating them then holding them together! Yours is beautiful!!! Hugs, Cami
