Waterlily Tilda For 7 Kids College Fund

Happy Saturday to you!!
I am still working on my accounting for our company and in 3 weeks all the adults kids will be departing to their own places.  Did you hear a squeal?  Sshhh don't tell the kids!  I am managing to keep up with my DT work for now and things are about to improve shortly!!  I have so many ideas in my head that need to come out in some artistic form.  I feel like I am in crafting withdrawl! lol

Here is a card I made for 7 Kids College Fund Store using Waterlily Tilda by Magnolia.

She is colored in distressed Inks.  I used a Joy die 6002/0304 to frame her and then added a string of pearls with Glossy Accents.  My papers are from Kaisercraft "Violet Crush"

Here is a wooden frame from the Prima Optimist collection that I Frantaged with Shabby White embossing enamel. I used Little Darlings "use your words" letter stamps to spell out MOM and glued them onto the lace with Glossy Accents.

I put in a pocket envelope on the side for a message and embellished it with Doodlebug pearls.  This side of the card is embellished with Memory box "Whimsical Flourish" and "Vivienne Butterflies" along with Joy "Butterfly Edge" die and a floral arrangement.

Here is a close up of the Vivienne Butterfly die cut from Memory Box, I really love this one and I used the Kaisercraft papers for it.

Here is the tag I made using a part of the paper pad from Kaisercraft.  I embellished it with Doodlebug pearls and seam binding ribbon.

The inside is all from the Kaisercraft paper pad and 2 butterflies from the Memory box die Vivienne Butterfly.

Here is a different view
