Birthday Tilda

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting today. How is your day going?

This is my third week as a Guest at Cupcake Craft Challenges and the challenge this week is a really fun one - Cake and Icecream! YUM! It gave me a chance to colour up my new "Birthday Tilda" and to try out a "taartpunt" (cake box). I've had the cut file for this for months and haven't tried it out so it was a fantastic opportunity to give it a go.

I've used the Doo Hickey dies "Old Swedish Lace" on the side edge of my card, some of the paper flowers and the leaves.

It is a bit hard to see in the photo, bt the cake and the pink 'satin' parts of Tilda's dress and shoes are all coats in Crystal Effects.

The inside of the card is decorated with a matchng Mini World Birthday Tilda and an old sentiment stamp from Kaisercraft.

And finally, the cake box by itself.  The papers are a mix of Girls Paperie and MME. All of the edges are distressed with Walnut Stain and stitched.

Sorry, there were a lot of photos today! Thank you for staying with me if you have gotten this far :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
