Tilda on a bridge - Happy Birthday


So I was given two Tilda stamps, I have never owned any of these images, and resisted buying them as I felt the craze had been and gone in Europe, without me even being aware of it! Having said that, they sure are cute. So I fancied making a scene type of card, you can buy bridge, fence, bench stamps from Magnolia, but I wasn't about to go there, so I turned to my cricut and cut the bridge at 4" from the Paper Dolls cartridge out in cream, and some grass at 1" in green.

I coloured the bridge in with every colour of grey and brown copic markers that I have, and was quite pleased with the result. I used the bubbles embossing folder to emboss a scrap of blue for the water, added a few flowers. The words Birthday Girl were cut in pink using the Skipton alphabet from Go-Kreate, and again in black as a shadow. The background paper is from DCWV Nanas Kids stack.
So Valentines day has been and gone, I hope you all had a lovely day. I received my usual bunch of flowers bought from the local garage - bless him, he doesn't know you can buy them from special shops called florists. So I suppose this is the time for us to dust off those cute little bunny stamps and stock up on yellow and green paper.
