Hi and welcome i`m here again to show the card topper i`v`e make for this weeks TOMIC challenge #3, The theme this week is summer. The Tilda on this card is Tilda with big bow from the You are so special collection. I wanted to do something a bit special and different for me. So i made a glittered pole with roses climbing up it i wasn't sure how it would turn out but i have to say i am very happy with the result.
 The papers are from magnolia ink and various others. Here's a side view you can see that i have raised the butterflies which are cut using a doohickey die.
 The background is cut from a spellbinder die and the flowers are from wild orchid crafts.

Hello and thankyou for stopping by. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Today i have two cute toppers for you firstly this little sweety. Rocking tilda from the new sweet rainbow collection. nice and summery i hope you agree.
 Sorry i dont know the name of these papers i just picked them from the huge stash i have.
 Here you can see i`ve put a paper doily behind behind tilda and behind that i have punched one and embossed another border using the doohickey dies.
 The other side shows a closer view of the raffia ribbon and the lovely magnolia sentiment.  Wishing you rainbows and sunshine.
I will be back later to add the other topper. I`d just like to thank the kind people that have become a follower of my blog and hope that others will like what they see and also become followers. i am very self critical when it comes to my toppers / cards. So it really touches me when people say they like what i make and its thanks to those people that i decided to sell the things i make. Good job really other wise i`d run out of space to put them all ha ha :-)
