Tilda on Safari

Published February 16, 2009 by isisimaginings

Hope everyone is having a nice Monday. Just a quick post tonight; I was at the hospital again today & I always come home tired & with a headache. So without further ado, here is today’s card. Over at DC, the Tilda challenge this week is ‘safari’.

At first, I had no ideas AT ALL! I had a look at Google images & found the pic of the baby elephant at , then I did a search for African trees & up came images of acacia trees & an idea began to form. The idea is that Tilda hasn’t seen the baby elephant sheltering from the hot sun under the acacia tree.
I chose this Tilda because her clothes are similar to a safari suit & I gave her a girly sunhat, because I’ve decided Tilda is a girly girl! 🙂 (Don’t look too closely at her ‘camera’ – it’s a perfect example of my atrocious drawing skills!) The flowers are meant to represent the African sky & sun & because there is no bling on this card, there just had to be a ribbon, so I chose a brown one to represent the dry African soil. I haven’t chosen a sentiment yet, but when I do, I will put it opposite the little bow.

Materials used:

  • Backing paper – BG Sugared collection
  • Flowers – Prima & Papermania
  • Whispers pens
  • QVC ribbon
  • Papermania brads

So, a very simple card, but I think it’s cute.

That’s it for tonight, take care.

PS I’ve just a thought – I hope this elephant is an African elephant, not an Asian one!!
