Virgo Tilda - Over The Garden Fence at Totally Tilda

Happy Sunday everyone!, Hope your having a good weekend, I'm feeling a bit better after suffering a heavy cold for the last few days, good job this card was already pretty much made...pheeew!
Before I move on to the reason I'm here, I just want to mention that I have a Celebration Blog Candy here which is open until the 15th May and has rather a lot of nice goodies.

It's time for a new challenge at Totally Tilda, and this time the theme is 'Over the Garden Fence'.  So we want to see a fence (along with a Tilda of course!) on your card somewhere.  This could be in the form of a stamp, a die or an long as it's a fence it's fine, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

My card today is featuring Virgo Tilda from the latest collection and I do love her, she's so pretty and she was a dream to colour. I made a very Spring like card as I seem to be in the zone with those at the mo.

I used papers from the Maja Vintage Spring Basics collection, these are from the 6 x 6 pack, this pack is very versatile because not only can you use the collection on it's own as I have done here, but also the papers work brilliantly with the other Maja collections!

I've used my Copics to colour Tilda, though I think this card would work equally well in distress inks also.

I gave her light Titian hair, I love this shade on her and it works beautifully with her lilac dress I think.

Dress: BV000, BV02, BV04

The fence I used was cut with a La-La Land Crafts die, Wrought Iron Fence

I was very lucky that I had the Leaves and Swirl Doo Hicky die, because the leaves match the ones that she's holding perfectly don't you think? To finish off  I used some lilac seam binding, white lace and purple satin ribbon, along with a selection of  flowers and pearls from The Ribbon Girl.  The bling on the bow is from my stash.

I didn't add a sentiment as I think this card would be suitable for lots of different occasions, and as usual the inside is decorated with papers from the same collection to complement the front, with plenty of room to write a message.

Do pop across to the blog to see the rest of the girls makes, you won't be disappointed, they really are fab!

  1. Such a beautiful card Linda. I love the way you have placed sweet Tilda between the die cut fence on top of those stunning papers. The colours are all so pretty and your detailing is gorgeous. Yet again, your attention to detail is wonderful how fabulous to have a leaf die to match those on the image.
    I am pleased you are starting to feel better now. I hope you are having a good Sunday
    hugs Sue xx

  2. Hi lovely, oh my word, how did you sew this card so neatly?!! your stitching is perfect! what a beautiful card, love that fence, and your very pretty design.

  3. I poke the holes with a piercing tool and mat and then stitch them by hand Mel, takes a bit of patience but it does give a very neat effect....and I just don't have the space to have my machine set up and really CBA to get it out and set it up every time I want to stitch a card :) xx
