Thinking of You ~ Pisces Tilda

Happy Sunday My Friends!

Summer seemed to zoom by in a flash, we are officially into fall here.
I love autumn; not the drizzling rains and cloudy skies,
but the golden, orange, and red hues of leaves.

I'd colored a few summer themed images in July which I never got time to
made into cards. Here's a shaped card with one of the images I adore ~ Pisces Tilda.
I hope it inspires you to join in our Magnolia Only challenge at The Ribbon Girl.
The theme this week is ~ Add pearls. How easy is that!


The layout is from The Sketchy Challenges #78.
I have turned/flipped the sketch 90 degrees.



I've colored the image with DI pads, and dotted pearl pen and glitters here and there.
I teared the DPs into strips and distressed all paper edges with distress tool,
then layered them with laces to form the background.
