Ready for a Swim

I had all these papers and the stamp out on my desk from making up card kits for a swap I'm in. When I saw the Midnight Madness sketch this morning (MMSC53), I couldn't wait to give it a try. My take is somewhere between the simple and fancy version.

I love this little Tilda in her old fashioned bathing suit. I have lots of these stamps, but she is definitely a favorite. Her inner-tube is covered in crystal effects to give it a realistic look.

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight. Off to watch Glee, it is just such a fun show!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Tilda from Magnolia
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI ssw, Only Orange, DCWV patterned paper
Embellishments: copics, stickles, crystal effects, border punch, prima flowers, PTI button
