#8 is My LAST Sister-in-Law Birthday for 2014!

The last of my sister-in-law birthdays is in October and is also a sister of my husband!  As I said on the previous post these two cards would be arriving a tad bit belated due to all our family activities and celebrations the last few weeks of September and the first week of October!  For this last card, I decided to use another kit from my Magnolia Tilda card set designed by my sister, Heidi Gonzales (My Lil' Scrap Corner), and with a few changes to suit my use of the card and sentiment placement.  Once again, I revisited using woodless-coloring pencils set with Mineral Spirits.  This plump little Tilda is called Swirling Leaf Tilda, and she is adorable with her windswept braids, swirling leaves, and what look like stylish Doc Martin boots---once again perfect with fall colors.

This card will travel to Utah to wish Judy a very happy belated birthday, and let her know we were thinking about her on her actual birthday.  Though her card was made before her birthday, it could not possibly arrive with snail mail until a few days later.  Happy Birthday Judy!  Enjoy your little Tilda card.

Next, I created the interior design to compliment the front and composed a little story verse for a belated birthday card.

Paper:  Georgia-Pacific White cs; Bazzill: Tangelo/ Lagoon. Basic Grey: Pyrus-Perry 2.  Stamps:  Magnolia Swirling Leaf Tilda.  Dies:  Spellbinders Circles/ Scallop Circles.  Punches: EK Medium Scallop Corners (inside).  Other:  Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colored pencils (Michaels).  Mineral spirits (WalMart).  3/8" Two-tone double-sided satin (Offray).
