Happy Birthday using Pisces Tilda!!

Good Saturday evening all!! hubbie is away so I really get to play!!! 

No dinners to cook, quick clean ups , office work all caught up so time to spend in the craft room...although I did spend about three hours this morning clearing our driveway of...YES...MORE SNOW...UGH!!!!

I received my "Zodiac Collection" in the mail on Monday and have been chomping at the bit to get down to using them!! 

I started with Pisces as that is my sign as well as my husband's!!  I decided to go with mauves as that is the shade of my birthstone!

Here is what I came up with...

please click on first image for a close view/slideshow...
I used the twisted easel style for my card...
base is cut out of kraft cardstock using a Go Kreate die...
the rest of the matts using the smaller sizes of the same die...

 this is the oh SO sweet "Pisces Tilda" from the Zodiac Collection 2014...
Happy Birthday stamp is Hero Arts...

  4. Beth, you know I love your creations....and this is no exception! You do it create uniqueness! (Hope that is word!!!) LOL
    I just love the shape of the card....kind of resembles a clam shell! I love that pansie ribbon ( I actually have some of that in my stash) it totally works, the green really does work. Love the little zipper embellishment with the bling hanging from it. Tilda is coloured perfectly with the copics and the frontage is so nice. I can totally see why you love that stuff!! It really does finish a piece!

  5. "sweet" card Beth! LOVE the zipper with a sentiment engraved on it! You have every possible embellishment out there, my friend. love the purples, for sure! I can't wait for my very own Tilda order to come!
    lovely card ...... love your creations, they inspire me!

  6. Gorgeous shaped easel card Bev. You have colored the image beautifully and coordinated with the Pisces birthstone color. Love the beautiful laces and zipper head you used.

  9. Beth, another stunning card. Beautiful shape and easel. So many awesome details, love the zipper pull! Fun Tilda, love mermaids. I wasn't excited about this line, but now that I have seen what you have done with it.....gorgeous. Your attention to detail is fantastic.

    We had a dusting of snow last night, enought to put an ice layer over our pond after it just thawed on Thursday and Friday with the sun coming out. Ugh....can't wait for it to stop snowing, like everyone else, I am so sick of boots and shovels....

  16. Hee Hee, Happy that you have time to play honey!!!! I love this easel card, the colouring and design is just beautiful, as is your colouring !!!! Aaw you have snow and we are waiting for summer to finally arrive here in England if it ever does. My brother in law lives in Vancouver and he hasnt mentioned any snow, mind you he works on the tube trains, so he's underground hee hee! He is always unhappy with our UK summers, too cold for him!!!!! I liked that you understood the CAS section in my post honey!!! I entered your challenge too.
    Take care
