"Bindi" Tilda

Well, when I saw this CUTE little Australian Tilda, being a good Aussie, I just HAD to have her. And then she arrived in my mail box (thank you Tickled Pink Stamps!!). She was inked up immediately and I set about colouring her ....**BING**... light bulb moment - she is dressed like Bindi Irwin! So I began wondering if she was maybe the inspiration for Pauline when she was designing her? What do you think?

Anyway... This is my DT card for this week's Magnolia Down Under Challenges #61. This week we have a recipe for your - 3 papers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon. I have used the Kaisercraft 6x6 stack from Up Up and Away for my 3 DP - the postcard piece is cut from one of the sheets in the stack. Tricky hey? My two buttons are actually some that my Mum saved for me - from my Dad's old work shirts. Nothing goes to waste! They worked out perfectly. All of my edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and the postcard piece is also distressed with my Tim Holtz edge distresser. And I have used my Magnolia Doo Hickey "Tildas Lace" (available also from Tickled Pink Stamps) for the edge of the layers.

So... some challenges are:
Papertake Weekly - a recipe - 3, 2, 1 (3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 ribbon for me!)
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Totally Tilda - Stitching

Thanks for hanging around for a very chatty post from me!
Have a great Sunday
