The Best is Yet to Be!!

Happy Monday! Today I spent time coloring one of my favorite stamps for the challenge over at Sweet Stampin. I love this Tilda with Broom because she reminds me of Cinderella, which is perfect because the challenge at Stamp Something this week was Fairy Tales! :-) As I was looking through my stamps for a sentiment, I found this clear stamp by Sweet n Sassy that was just perfect. Little did Cinderella know that the best was yet to be!!

My sketch today was from Create 4 Fun, although I had to switch out the oval for a rectangle or Tilda wouldn't have fit. I used the summery blue color scheme for the Simon Says Stamp challenge, and I even used some ribbon and sparkles (my Stardust pen), which makes it work for the Pink Elephant challenge as well.

I must admit that I always feel badly when I make a Tilda card. Most of them that I see out there are so GORGEOUS, that mine doesn't seem to do her justice. I do love all of the roses, and tags, and ribbon and such that others use, but I just don't *think* that way! And, that's ok. :-) How about you? Are you an embellisher? What a gift you have!! Are you more of a clean and simple stamper? What a gift you have!! Praise the Lord that we can all enjoy making beautiful things in so many different styles!!!

Happy stamping!!

Tricia, this came out beautifully and I think you did a great job. Even though she doesn't have that European style she's so pretty. You have such a clean feel with her. It defintely shows how versatile an image can be. I LOVE it!

What do you mean? You've embellished your pretty card with ribbon, pearls, sparkle, embossing and a beautiful mat. Sometimes I just get sick of FLOWERS. LOL Love your card--it's perfect.
