Tilda with Tree

My kids got me a couple of trees for Mother's Day, rather late, but that is alright. I planted them this evening. One is a dogwood and the other a Japanese maple. This card goes right along with them.


I colored Tilda with distress inks and then added some Twinkling H2o's to the dress and wings. The leaves, tree and flower border are done with memory box dies. The butterfly is done with a Martha Stewart punch. Tilda is popped up with foam tape. Her lace has crystal stickles added and there are pink stickles on the flowers of the border and silver stickles for the body of the butterfly. The silver dots are nailhead stickers. 

Here is a close-up of the leaves.
And a close-up of Tilda.


This card is done for the following challenges:

Dies and Punches at the Paper Shelter blog here
