Tilda & Co Challenge - Serendipity and SBS 17 Challenge #1



Here is my card for the Tilda & Co Challenge this week which is Serendipity, and it also incorporates the SBS 17 challenge set by Kylie which was to make a long gatefold card with a message which follows from the outside of the card to the inside. For the serendipity theme I cut up lots of pieces of pink paper in triangle shapes and glued them onto a piece of card, I then cut the card into 2 squares and 1 rectangle to decorate the outside and inside of the card. I went around the panels with a black pen to create some faux stitching as I wanted it to look like patchwork. I used 3 Tilda images which I coloured with Distress Inks, the flowers are Prima and the brads by Dovecraft. For my SBS17 challenge I used Woodware small sentiment stamps to create the message "Just for you, on your special day, happy birthday".
Thanks for looking! Love Becky xx
