The Next Level Challenge..Summer Tilda Wading




I had some issues with links on my pictures that would not allow you to enlarge them. I have since added new pictures, and they should now be able to be enlarged. Sorry about that!



Some of you had asked if you could see a picture of the inside of the card, so I posted a picture below. Thanks for all the nice comments on this card!! I really appreciate them!!






Hi Again~

I know this is not common for me to get two posts in one day, but I had to try out the challenge over at The Next Level this week. I was surprised to be able to get one done for them, but it was pretty fun to do. They already provided the sketch, and I just had to add some dimension to my image which I did. I popped the main image as well as the circle that it is displayed on, added some sparkle and glaze to the water, created a blue sky, and there you have a fun card with Tilda taking a very cautious wade in the water.


Thanks for dropping by for a look. What do you think of my first TNL card?

Hi Carolyn, I've been meaning to stop by and say "Hi". I saw your card on Card of the Week - Best of the Blogosphere and was going to drop by then but never made it. This is such a lovely card. I love Tilda's shimmery dress and the glassy looking water she is wading in. Great job and congrats on making the Best of the Blogosphere!!
