In Love with my die cuts Tilda!

Yes, as you can see I do love my die cuts! I've had this Tilda colored for a couple of weeks and just could not find the right layout! My plan was to make her a Fall Tilda even though she came out in the summer collection. She is available right now at Magnolia-licious! Sort of fun to give her another purpose! (Especially since we can't yet get our hands on the so Spooky collection!) I recently bought these new die cuts -the vine (it's huge!), the leaves and labels 9. So why not toss them all onto one card! I don't know if you can see that there is some sparkle added to her fall bouquet. I hope so. the orange gingham is actually one of those die cut sheets of dp. It's from Pink Paislee.
I love the effect you get when you emboss the die (using the tan mat thingy) and then sponge a deeper color onto it. It's a need surprise when you pop it out of the die. (Yes, I know, I'm easily entertained :)


I'm afraid I didn't keep a color list and that I haven't been doing very well about it lately. I've had a request from Gwen for colors on a recent card so I'm vowing (again!) to do better at that. I promise to get back to you Gwen-I'll look for the color list tonight!
Hope you have a great Tuesday!
Thanks so much for stopping by! (Blogoversary next week, so I hope you'll keep coming back!)
Hugs to you all!
Cheryl
