Aquarius Tilda!!

Good Wednesday morning dear blogging friends!! 

Hope that every one is well and that my State side friends weren't effected too badly by the storm system that hit so many of the States!! 

I'm here today to show you a card that I made for a very dear friend...we don't see each other as often as we'd like but when we get together it's like we see each other all the!!!

I chose to make a card style that I have never done before but saw over on the Totally Tilda blog...inspiration for the "Joy Fold" card done by Stephanie, Brigitte and Dawn!!  I was so intrigued that I just had to try this one out!!!

Here is my version of a "Joy Fold" card...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
still working my way through the Zodiac 2014 collection that I purchased from Magnolia-licious
this is "Aquarius Tilda"...
both the polka dot paper and striped paper are by My Mind's Eye...
 Tilda is matted on a Go Kreate die...Frilly Square #10...#120030...
image is coloured with distress inks and dusted with a bit of Frantage...
the polka dot ribbon, cheesecloth and pearl strand are from The Ribbon Girl...
 closer view...
 birthday sentiment is LOTV Set #58-Pretty Grungy Good Times...
tag is Magnolia "So Wrapped Tilda Lace" from the SCL 2012 collection also purchased from Magnolia-licious...
 stick pin and diamond drop are also from The Ribbon Girl...
flowers are Wild Orchid...
opening the folds.. 
 sorry for all the pics but wanted to get the effect in of all the layers in this fold...
