Hello all. This week I had a few problems with my creativity. It seems to me that it is on vacation. Somehow, I managed to make this card. I'm not quite happy with it. Maybe Mr. Linky like it. First idea for this card was Totally Gorjuss challenge Yummy. I got from   Weekly freebie MYGRAFICO beautiful cupcake. I have an idea to put Tilda on it. Cupcake was the burgundy color so I had to adjust all the colors to it. I cut four Doilies with Marianne dies and glue them on the card. I  also found this old bow. I did not know where to put it last, I decided to paste it on top of the card. Flovers on left are made with old unused embellishment. Tilda's dress is made ​​with paper piecing. I had to try some this technique, and here is very simple. Tilda is coloring with coloring pencils and glued with 3D foam. Also  cupcake. This came out.

Stamp:  Yummy For Your Tummy Collection - Dinner Tilda
Sentiment: Free digital stamp - Ginger's House
Accessories: Marrianne doily die, Far Far Hill paper, paper bought in art shop, gems, ribbon.
I will enter this card to the following challenges:

Simply Magnolia - Bling and bows,
Waste not Wednesday - Unused embelishment,

Hi. After all the trouble I managed to finish this gift bag. Color cartridge I had emptied. New I did not have. So my flowers are  so colorful. Then  were emptying the battery in the camera. I had to wait to fill up .... For my gift bag, I used Tina's sketch for Tomic Official Magnolia challenge.
This week have been my favorite colors brown, olive green, red and pink. Paper in the background is basically a kind of frame so I keep trying to look like this. Tilda and Edvin are painted with watercolor pencils, cut and glued to the  heart shape.

Accessories:  Sizzix die cut, Marianne die cuts, flower punch, ribbon.
