Tilda in Wonderland

Time sure does fly by when you are busy making cards!  This is my entry for Inventory Challenge #18.  We are being asked to use layers - as my Dad would say "lay it on Leon!"

This is a thank you card for my son Scott and his cute wife Daphene.  Scott loves movies every bit as much as I do ... and yes he is a little artsy fartsy!  Scott and Daphene built a home theater complete with stadium seating .  He has a large old timey popcorn popper which fills the room with that wonderful aroma of movie time popcorn.  And if we are really lucky, we might have an icy cold libation or two.  Thanks for the great memories kids!

 Presenting "Tilda in Wonderland"

Down the rabbit hole Tilda goes - round and round through layers of card stock, yarn, twine and Stickles.

Only to bump slap dab into the one and only Johnny Depp!!  Tilda is quite giddy with pleasure even though she has fallen a long way.  Fortunately, she lands in a pile of magic leaves! Oh my!!!!

 And they live happily ever after.


And of course there needs to be a place to leave a little love for my son and daughter-in-law ... so on the very back of the card .....

Okay my friends - it would pleasure me a great deal if you would visit my team mates 
  Christina Danielle, Charlene, Rene, and Jean in the 18th edition of the "Inventory Challenge!"  And I might add, all comments and love are gratefully accepted.

Pat said...

Well, look at that...Paola beat me!! It's 2:30 a.m. here and I got up just to see your card and leave the first comment! (Not really, but it sounds good, doesn't it?!) Sandy, my dear, sweet, crazy talented Mountain Mama...where to start...first, Scott better ooh and ahhhh over this card because it's truly a work of art!! Your layers are fab...and I so love the distressing! (My Zutter came yesterday...thanks for the tip!)...and the yarn and 'em!! I had to look really close to figure out what's in the hole...a rabbit, right? (Work with me eyes ain't what they used to be!) So dang cute! And...Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter...LOVE IT!! The mushrooms are cool...and I love the drippy looking edging. Tilda is so dang cute rolling around in the leaves...I guess Johnny Depp can do that to a girl! The punched out leaves are so clever...and I love all the stickles! Such a fun story and card!! You've outdone just keep getting more and more intricate with your cards...You've come a long way, baby!! :-) Everything about this card is clever and cute and brilliantly executed. I wouldn't change a thing!! (Oh, except that you'd be sending it to me instead of Scott! LOL!)Another winner! Hugs...Pat

Hi,Sandy! I just love your recent "distress" style and the stories which accompany each card. You have such an inventive mind! Love the shape of your card, that rabbit hole with distressed layers and, of course, that sweet adorable cutie-pie (Johnny Depp I mean, but Tilda is cute too:)).
Gorgeous colorwork and such sweet details! Your card is just magnificent! Great work!

Hugs to you and have a great week-end!

Danielle Champagne said...

Sandy, I followed your story, mouth wide open, did not know what to expect, let me pick up my jaw, and free the keypad to type...
I'll start with the simulation of a hole, WOW! gorgeous. Love al the distressing, and each layer is interesting, and different. As far as Johnny's image (he's beautiful, in magician, or pirate or else) BUT your background is magnificient, and has so muchmagic in it. It just unlocked my imagination... Love the mushrooms, and the beautiful glittery swirl. then comes Tilda, in french we say "tourner le fer dans la plaie", this stamp is on my mind, and is no where to be found... You colored her so beautifully, and brought her to life so well, that you make want to have her... more. Love the beautiful lacy borders of your inner layers and the idea ofthe falling "glue", just let us know that Tilda has come from somewhere...
Sandy, you are quite an artist, such imagination, and talent. I can feel how much fun you had making this card, and I am so happy to see the expression of your happiness.
Have a wonderful day.
Hugs. D.
(I am going to dream about what happens to Tilda when she opens her eyes!!!)

Deanna Mulder said...

Sandy, your card is fantastic. Love the story it tells. You did a great job on the rabbit hole on the front and the inside. Love the whole thing.

Sharon Caudle said...

Tinx said...

Sandy, I love your commentary on your cards. You must really love Mr. Depp! And can I just say that I am a music and movie fiend! I can talk about newbies and classics all day. Your sons theater room sounds awesome! They will def. love this card when they receive it. I love its wittiness and the color scheme and especially the drippy goo border punch. It's MS right? I've been looking around for that one.

Barb Hardeman said...

Sandy! This is so fantastically creative you really got the feeling of falling through the earth down beautifully. The distressed layers, the twine and decreasing layers are a wonderful idea. THEN comes the amazing surprise on the inside! I'm going to write Mr. Depp and tell him that you're using his photos on your cards!!! He would love how creatively you showcase him! LOL
Tilda is perfect on the inside! What a darling rolling around at the bottom of the hole! How do you do it? How do you come up with such fantastic stories and then pull them all together in picture form. This is really delightful-I can't wait for your next one!

Janine said...
