Just One More Tilda

I had to do one more today. Why? Because 1) It is the weekend and I never get time to play because DH and the kids keep me hopping and doing fun stuff, and 2) Kraftie Kimmie has a contest on her blog to win a Tilda, and I had to make an entry!!!

I had lots of fun with this one. The color combination came from Scraptitude and I found the paper in my collection of 12x12's to match it - kind of. Since it did not match perfectly, I used some of my prismas to gently color over the flowers that were not quite right in colors that matched. (I know, that is scarily AR and yes, I am getting help for it *giggles*)

The other cool thing I did on this card is I took a Heidi Swapp ghost flower mini and embossed it in clear and dipped it in some of my Art Institute glitter (green - although it looks kind of gold in the close up). Then I punched a hole in it using my cropodile (which went through it so easily) and added the small prima flower on top and a brad. I think it is a really cute accent and I had been wanting to try the glittering of a ghost shape for awhile since I saw it in my blog browsing. Oh, and I added some swarovski crystals (pink) as Tilda's pony tail holders (baubles) and you can see that in the close up too! I love they way they look.
