I'm Baaaack!!! With a Tilda card!

And I got a card made today! My DH and I were away for the weekend! It was our 17th wedding anniversary and we went to southern Ohio. We were trying to go on a little trip where we didn't spend a lot of money. The Hocking Hills State Park is there and we took a fabulous 6 mile hike into (what seemed like) the center of the earth! The rocks, cliffs and waterfalls were spectacular! My photography doesn't do it justice, but I'll get some pictures posted soon! Well, my new Spellbinder blossom dies arrived while we were gone. Had to use the largest one right away! I started this card by deciding on blue and yellow for my main colors. I wanted to try blue jeans with my copics. I hope you can click to enlarge because there is crosshatching in my denim. Then I went to Bo Bunny's double dot paper. I love all the colors and was ordering some colors that I am missing when I decided to use ONLY Double Dot as my dp! I used to hate polka dots, I mean I really hated them! Hard to imagine now, because they are a favorite! The card needed some edging so I pierced and faux stitched around EVERYTHING! I'm not very good at it, but consider it to have a ragged homespun look and it's okay!

Now, the flower!! Do you not love the flower! I saw it on a blog this morning and had to make it right away! It uses 8 of the smallest Nestability scalloped heart! So easy! Here's the link to her wonderful directions and creations! Thanks to Lesa at Paper Possibilities! Please scroll down to her April 2 entry for directions on the blossoms.
Okay, I've rambled long enough! Here's the close up of the coloring and the copics are listed below for anyone interested!


Copic colors: E000, E01. R20
Y11, Y21, Y08, E40, E43, B34, B39, N5, C7
I hope you've found some inspiration today!
Have a great evening!
