Pretty in Pink

It seems ages ago since I made a Tilda card and can you believe it but I didn't buy the latest club kit, don't worry I've brought a couple but I'm finding that Tilda is like marmite and people don't always like her so I can only make them for people who love her.
But she such an easy image to colour, so while I was having off days I coloured her in and then the challenge on Just Magnolia was for a Pink card to promote Breast Cancer Awareness and although she is not completely Pink but there's plenty of it.
I also used the fabulous sketch from Jacque on Friday Sketchers who herself is an inspiriation beating Breast Cancer.
The papers I've used are American Crafts and the embossing folder is a cuttlebug one, I've dotted the dots with a pink souffle pen, it doesn't show up on the photo but its there.
You can't have a Tilda card with the marvellous magnolia swirl, yes they're not cheap but I've used it so many times its certainly been worth it. Flowers are various punches and the corners are cuttlebug dies.
So I'm at my Sis, so this as been scheduled hopefully (love you Mr Blogger) not only is her PC slower than a snail, her security thingy is outdated and she wants to put a new one on, rather her than me.

A beautiful card. Love all the pinks, especiall love the way you have coloured the centres of the flowers on the embossing.

MarieL said...

What a gorgeous pink card, Debbie. I am in the same boat. Family and friends are not crafters and are not into the Tilda's and hAnglars. I am working on a pink card for Friday Sketchers but also want to make one for a lady that was just diagnosed and I am having a hard time with that one.
Hope you are having fun at your sisters house.

Such a pretty, girly card Debby. Tilda has grown on me recently, especially when I see beautiful cards like yours, but it still sort of 'freaks me out' because she doesn't have a mouth! xx
