Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! Happy Easter! I'm posting a day early because I know everyone will be busy tomorrow, and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I haven't done a Tilda card in a long time, and I thought this church window with Tilda would make a nice Easter card.

I started by coloring the window with W-1 & 3 copic markers, then chose my dp. I wanted something in the grays to match the window and came up with this retired SU called Uptown. I also used Almost Amethyst and So Saffron. I colored Tilda accordingly once I had my colors chosen. After I colored everything and started layering it together, I decided to add crystal effects to the window for a more realistic look. I took this picture from a different angle so you could see it better. The picture is blurry...I think I moved when I snapped it!
You can also see the stickles I added to Tilda!

Then I had to decide on a layout. Well Taylor's sketch today was perfect for my card. I scalloped the edges of the amethyst piece and added another piece of Uptown dp on top of that, then finished it off with a So Saffron grosgrain ribbon and bow on top. I thought a butterfly perched on the top of the window would look spring-ish, so I used the MS butterfly punch with the amethyst paper and added the three yellow dots of bling. The window is on dimensionals and Tilda is on dimensionals also. Lots of dimension in this card. The sentiment is from PTI's Mailbox Greetings and was cut and embossed with a scalloped oval nestie. That's it!

Well, I hope you have a very nice day with your family and friends tomorrow! Happy Easter! Oh, one more thing...I forgot to mention that today is my 17th wedding anniversary! How did so many years go by? Here's a picture of that wonderful day...April 11, 1992! I love this picture of Kevin and I! We look so young! Oh my! Thanks for stopping by!
