Bonne fête Brigitte

Happy Friday Dear Friends,
Time flies, we are already almost half way in May, and I have not been very present in blog world lately, too much to do in "real world"! Today, I would like to share with you a card I made from my dear friend Brigitte's birthday at the end of March. I choose Happy Easter Tilda because I really love her happiness, her jumping in the air! and this is the feeling I wanted my card to bring to Brigitte.  Her favorite color is purple, I did create an almost monochromatique ambiance for her. it is a Shaker type card, that opens on one of my very favorite backgrounds, from Sweet Rainbow collection. My images are stamped on xpress blending card, and colored with copics. 

Bon Vendredi, Amies bloggueuses,
Que le temps passe vite! nous voici presqu'à la mi-mai... Je n'ai pas été très présente dernièrement dans la blogosphère, trop occupée dans ma vraie vie! Aujourd'hui j'aimerais partager avec vous une carte offerte à ma bonne amie Brigitte, pour sa fête à la fin du mois de mars. C'est Happy Easter Tilda qui lui apporte mes voeux en sautant de joie! Puisque la couleur favorite de Brigitte est le violet, j'ai créé une ambiance quasi monochromatique, je n,ai rajouté que du carton brillant argenté comme contraste. C,est une carte de type shaker, avec tout plein de petites micro billes à l'intérieur, et la fenêtre donne sur une de mes scènes favorite, de la collection Sweet Rainbow. Mes images sont imprimées sur x-press blending card, et toutes coloriées aux copics.

A view from the open card, I played tricks with Tilda, and inverted her image, so she could be seen as well from the inside, and display her happiness inside out!

Un aperçu de la carte ouverte, j'ai inversé l'image de Tilda, il est ainsi possible de la voir sauter de joie de l'intérieur autant que de l,extérieur.

A close up view of the lovely scenery, I used only pastel colors and kept them very very diluted, to produce something like watercolor.
Un gros plan de ce merveilleux paysage, afin de lui donner l'aspect aquarelle, je n,ai utilisé que des teintes délavées et vraiment diluées.

Since there are not much inside space to leave a message, I used the back face of the card.
I created a lovely envelope and tag with the Damask decor Cricut cartridge. To give more style, I inked the edges, and heat embossed with holographic powder.

L,intérieur étant très rempli, j'ai utilisé l'endos de la carte, décoré d'une mignonne pochette contenant une étiquette sur la quelle j,ai inscrit mes voeux. Cette pochette est conçue avec la cassette Damask Decor de Cricut.  Les rebords ont été encrés et embossés à chaud pour ajouter plus de style!

The little tag, also inked and heat embossed.
La petite étiquette aussi encrée et embossée.

Thank you so much for visit, your lovely comments! they make my day.
Merci de votre visite, de vos merveilleux messages, ils ensoleillent ma journée!

Oh this is so beautiful! I love the Tilda's inside and out! You are so smart Danielle. Love the scene it is soft and pretty, the shaker part looks pretty too. I love the papers and sparkle that you chose and the butterfly floral spray is so beautiful. Your coloring is soft. I can never get my coloring light, I am pretty heavy handed. Fabulous card to make her very happy. Love the envelope too with the embossed tag.
Happy Mother's Day to you,

Wonderful art work Danielle - I do love shaker cards. They hold kind of a magical mystery. All the embellishments are beautiful especially the butterflies and ribbon. How clever of you to reverse your Tilda image. Your tag and envelope are beautiful as well. I know Brigitte will love this grand birthday gift. A card to treasure for sure!

Danielle, this is fabulous. No wonder Brigitte loves your shaker card. Love the scene you've created with this adorable Tilda and beautifully coloured. I do like the watercolour-like look of the background. The glitter and shine add the perfect touch. Love your card.
BTW, how did you do the mirror image of the the Tilda?
