King Tilda



Good morning everyone and a very happy Saturday....whoohooo!!! Well, I am continuing my journey with distress inks. I hope you like my new creation! I used a wonderful sketch by the incredibly talented Tanja (Stampin Piper) for FRIDAY SKETCHERS #140.
I am also entering this card in the JUST MAGNOLIA AND HANGLAR&STANGLAR CHALLENGE BLOG.
I found some excellent watercolor paper....now I have to initiate a search for the manufacturer.
I used BoBunny papers on my card. The beautiful lace is a gift from my fabulous friend, Claudia. The castle is a stamp from Great Impressions and, of course, Tilda is from the new "You are So Special" Collection, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. The site was down last night, so I don't know if she has the collection up.
Thank you so much for visiting. I appreciate all of your comments.
