Two Little Birds on a Branch with Tilda

Hi Everyone
Hope you have enjoyed the May bank holiday. Mike has worked most of it, twelve hour shifts. So I have been in my craft room with the two dogs, who love to help by eating the scraps of paper that fall on the carpet.

 Here is a card I made a while back using little " Tilda in Summer Pants". I cut up some branch dies from Joy Craft and added two Magnolia birdies. Of course there are other embellishments including butterflies, gems, pearls and glitter, but I love those birds!

 There is lots going on here. The papers are Maja Spring, stitched and daubed with gesso. Tilda is surrounded by ivory lace and I have added a seam binding bow with a wooden heart. All Ribbon Girl. The flowers and pearls are from my stash, I have added Liquid Pearls and Glamour Dust to Tilda who has been painted with distress inks.

Don't forget, the new challenge over at "All About Magnolia".
The theme for May is "Flowers". I would love you to join in.
We had over 100 entries for our first challenge!

Sending Hugs
