Make a Wish!

I've been spending a little time trying to ink up my most recent Magnolia purchases and I've got a lot to go but did get this one inked up and assembled onto a card today. Like many others, I make cards for the fun of it and that often means if I want to sit down to make a BIRTHDAY card or another THEMED card, it doesn't end up being one in the end. I just can't force my scattered muse to focus on one thing...she has a mind of her own and I just follow along.

So here's what I made this afternoon: It may look like I did a little masking with the fence, but no, I just stamped tilda, then the fence over her, then stamped another tilda and cut her out to paste over the top (a little longer than the real stamp....maybe I need to make a video of how I did it). Just a little hint on the cut edges: I run a gray marker over the edge to soften it up and make the cuts "fade away".

So maybe, just maybe, this card will work for a girly birthday card. This May, I've got a boy birthday card to make, a girl birthday card to make, three mother's day cards for my sisters and a birthday card for my aunt to make this month so I sure hope my muse will cooperate!

I also have begun the BIG job of cleaning out my "crap" room and organizing it up A, perhaps this little magical Tilda is giving me a little support. If only that magic wand would work in my room.

I did happen to do a little with the inside of the card too. You know, with so much work on the outside, you just can't possibly leave the inside bare, right???

Have a great week!
