Hold on to your Dreams

Todays card has been created with one of the Tilda stamps and the butterfly background. Ive stamped Tilda first then masked her and stamped the background on afterwards. Ive then coloured them with my copic pens and cut her out with my rotatrim, before mounting her onto a piece of coloured vellum I have distressed the edge with some red ink, then mounted her onto the pink pearlescent card with some foam tape. I have done a similar thing with the sentiment and this one was also distressed around the edge before mounting it onto another piece of the same coloured card.

The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, and again I have used some of the Nitwit papers, I have used two of the papers, I should confess that Ive used one of the sketches that I found while blogging. The first mount is one of pink pearlescent card, with the first of the papers, and the second mount is a triangle and a spotted paper, these were then attached to the base card, and two pieces of rik rak ribbon were attached to the back of the first mount.

Ive then stuck it to the card, and positioned the stamped mounted image at the top of the card, the mounted greeting is stuck at the bottom, and the final thing is the three heart buttons stuck on the left hand side. Its quite a simple card this time, but I hope you like it.
