Stylish Tilda has a stickpin!

This card was inspired by the Basic Grey 6x6 pad in Porcelain, but also by Sharon (No Time to Stamp) She made a very pretty card on Feb 2 and linked up some excellent information on making stickpins from jewelry findings at JoAnn's and other stores. Then her link leads to some others who have given online sites.
Well, I'm still not feeling too well so my jewelry pieces came from Wally World (WalMart)! It's the only place besides work that I have been lately! I got the little (3") stickpins, the silver beads and some freshwater pearls. Each package was 2.00. I used my E600 glue to hold the bottom bead on the pin. You could also bend the wire around with small pliers. It's very bendy! The pin did not stick through my ribbon, I just worked it through the loop in to bow. I'm going to do more of these!
Stylish Tilda is from Magnolia-licious. She's from the fall collection, I think, but works great in many colors. I colored her with the same colors as the card just before this one. See that post for copic colors, please.
Well, as I said, this was lots of fun and I hope you enjoyed it, too! Thanks for your wonderful comments and support of my blog!
Have a good evening! Cheryl
