Trunk Full of Wishes

Good Monday morning to you. Today I have a card for my dear daughter because it's her 26th birthday. Happy Birthday, Sweetie! Since she is due to have her second son any time, she might as well share her birthday and get on with it, right?! Anyway, this is "Traveling Tilda" and "Suitcase with Sign" from the Bon Voyage collection. I just love this Tilda so I made her into the keeper of wishes inside this trunk. You'll note that I attached a key to "unlock" that trunk full of wishes. I copied Mary Giemza's post idea from Saturday and did an easel card, even borrowing the die-cut swirls. Her card is awesome and you can see it here. I love doing easel cards because the recipient can display their card if they want to rather than having to put it away. I used Wags and Whiskers DP's and I stamped the frame around Tilda with Flourishes' "Falling Leaves", then sponged Tilda and the frame in "Old Paper" Distress Ink from Tim Holtz. The sentiment is computer generated and the dies are from Spellbinders' Labels Seventeen. I love those because they accommodate a pretty big image. The flowers are Primas from 7 Kids College Fund. I hope you have a lovely week and I hope to be back with some challenge cards soon. Til then, thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.
