Tiddly Inks - Thank You

Today I'm bringing you another fabulously adorable and oh so sweet Tiddly Inks - Wryn image.  I've printed Wryn and Wren - Too Tweet onto Xpress Cardstock.  I also printed the image again onto some orange polka dotted designer paper that I had in my stash. 
I printed it on the designer paper in order to paper piece her dress.  I colored my image first in its entirety and then pieced her dress.  I used a nice coat of Glossy Accents on the toes of her shoes.  I trimmed her out using my MFT Oval STAX Die-namics ONE and TWO and added her to the card front using awesome Jody Boosters.  In the last few months, I have been super into the wonderful 6x6 paper pads that are in abundance all of a sudden in every store so much so that my HUGE collection of 12x12 paper is being sadly neglected.  So I've decided to give my mini packs a break and dig back into my 12x12.  I've used mostly Basic Grey papers (not sure which company the plaid is from...that was a scrap on my desk) and SU! and Bazzill solid card stock.
I used a sketch from MFT for my layout adding lots of stitching and anchored each skinny panel with mini brads.  The on-going challenge right now at Tiddly Inks is to create a 'Thank You' card so I've pulled out my Big Greetings from MFT which has a simple and crisp sentiment perfect for this.  I've stamped my sentiment in SU! Regal Rose ink onto watercolor paper and trimmed it out with my new MFT Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics. 
I pulled out my felt stash in order to hand cut and roll three small flowers.  I edged my layers with Distress Ink in Old Paper to give each layer a bit more life.
I used more stash papers from my desk to create a fun interior.  I quickly cut the doily using MFT's Dizzy Doily Duo Die-namics (say THAT three times fast!) using the leftover BG paper from the front.  I layered a Tim Holtz Mini-Rosette on top and a MS Butterfly to finish the cluster off.  I stitched on two sides only to anchor the entire interior.  I am also entering this into the most recent SSS - Anything Goes challenge

Thanks for visiting today!!  I'm off to color new images for the upcoming Some Odd Girl Clear Stamp release a the end of May!!  So fun!! 

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
