Sweet Little Tilda

I couldn't wait to ink up this image that was part of the "Christmas-Winter, 2009" stamp club set. I colored her using colors from the new Sugar Rush papers by Basic Grey. I've had a bit more time for stamping with the holidays over, so I actually made this card to incorporate two challenges. The pleated strip down the left-hand side is for the Just Magnolia challenge and includes a tutorial on paper-pleating. Their DT did some great cards illustrating this technique. I decided that I didn't want to completely lay my pleats down flat because I think they look rather cute popped up. The layout was from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge. The layout itself is great. I just struggled because of wanting to use the papers I had picked out from the Sugar Rush pack, and then I wanted to incorporate the pleat, so it actually took me awhile to put it together. The sentiment is from SU's Happy Harmony. Be sure to stop by later to see who the winner of my blog's blog hop is. The winners will be picked and announced tonight. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful up-coming week.
Edit to Post: I realized, sadly, that this layout doesn't quite line up with Mercy's Tuesday Challenge sketch, so perhaps I'll have time to do another one, but I'm not going to post this one to that challenge.
