Fairy Tilda

I am a fisherman's widow this week..Mike went fishing in Alaska and I'm hoping he is going to bring home lots of Halibut! 

Today's card is for the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #31 and Stamptaular Sunday Challenge #66.  Sunday Sketch and Stamp is also having a design team call so keep your fingers crossed!!  The sketch is from Sunday Sketch, I took a lot of liberties with the sketch but I'm pleased with the way it turned out.  I ended up making a window and framing it with filigree cut from my Cricut and Martha Stewart butterfly punch then added some bling. 

I stitched around my card with my sewing machine. I didn't use very many flowers because I did not want to detract from the filigree frame.  Tilda's wings (on mini Tilda and Fairy Tilda) are embellishment with Diamond Stickles.  The fabulous designer paper is from Bo Bunny and I used CTMH cardstock to mat with.

Stamps used are Mini Tilda, Fairy Tilda and Swing.

Thanks for stopping by,

How cool is this??? What a great idea with the little 'window' and all the leaves, flowers and butterflies around it....frames it perfectly. This is such an adorable card!
One question....where is the die from used on the inside? I love the shape of it.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards!

thanks for all of the nice comments everyone!

Lisa, I used my cricut to cut the inside, it is from the sentimentals cartridge.
