Secretive Tilda

I made this card for a special young lady that’s in the Air Force & won’t be home for Thanksgiving. My grandaughter Ashley just joined the ranks of the Military & will graduate from basic training next month … I hope this little card will let her know how much I love & miss her & wish we could all be together for this Thanksgiving …

Card Recipe :
Secretive Tilda from Magnolia-licious
Background trees from SU
Sentiment from  PTI
Card stock is from Stampin Up
Pattern paper is DCWV from JoAnn’s
Spellbinders Nestie label 6
Yellow flower made from Nellie Snellen punches
Flower brad was colored with my Copics as was the sweet little Tilda
Flowers & pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts
I used a little Autumn Flower Soft on Tildas bouquet

I'm entering this in these challenges
