My Fantastic Followers:)

I do hope you are enjoying your day or night , wherever you may be around the world!
I have been busy making a few cards as I had a some free time on my hands tonight and I have to admit I can't seem to steer away from Magnolia's sweetest girl, Tilda.
So naturally I made a Tilda card and incorporated some patterned paper from the Graphic 45's "An ABC primer collection" and it was just right for my project! 
 I just love all the Graphic 45's, so beautifully detailed and so much too look at and I have quite a few in my stash now:)
Anyway on to my card!
I only used one sheet of the patterned paper and cut it up and positioned it in different places on the card. I used a silver card and also distressed the entire front cover with a sanding block.  Silver  seemed to work better than other colours as it gave a more refined look.
I made a little desk top out of balsa wood and use TH distress ink to colour it, and added a small staple as a handle.
I also added a little school bell in the corner of the card and a school card (not shown here)
on the right hand side (see full card). If you look closely I have used a vellum clock sticker on the side.
Hope you enjoy my card as much I loved putting it together.
Have a great tomorrow and hope it's a creative one :)

Oh my word Lynn Tilda looks so beautiful, the design and colours of this card is superb. My blog banner has been a big hit and I still study it each time I open my blog I just can't get over it's beauty and the fact that I actually have a Tilda incorporated in the banner I am tickled pink.
