Tilda makes her Mark

Tilda is getting ready for back to school, and her Mom just took her shopping. It wasn't long ago that Tilda was dressed in polyester pantsuits, usually out of some subdued (ugly) gold or brown sewn on Mom's old Singer, but this year she begged her Mom to take her shopping to a real store where she could buy this pretty jumpsuit. The brown shirt is from last year's pile, but with this pink number, it looks brand new!! Tilda is so excited, she even stuffed her pockets with art supplies, her ruler, paintbrush, and pencil. She is ready for art class after many summer days of helping her Mommy in the craft room!!
This is for the Magnolia challenge to use buttons on your card, and this one has quite a few! I used my Papertrey collections in Raspberry Fizz, browns, and creams. The bottom button is a flower I made using cardstock handtorn into circles. The circles were spritzed with water, crumpled up, uncrumpled and then each corner was wrapped around a stylus tip and rolled up. This helped me to use some different colors to tie the card together.
Thanks to my friend, Dawn (flowergal36) for sending me this Tilda image...I love her!!
Thanks for stopping by. Tilda is going to do a model runway of the rest of her school wardrobe, won't you join us in the living room? I have some fresh lemonade!
