A Tilda Birthday Card

At our house on Thanksgiving, we celebrate the holiday and my Granddaughter's birthday. It is all the more special, as she is a delightful and very special girl. This year she is 13 years old and a teenager. This lovely girl is no longer little and this grandma is a bit sad about that. Not only is she a straight "A" student but she is an accomplished dancer, performing with her dance studio's competition team. She and the team have won many awards, but last season was especially great as my granddaughter won the championship for her first solo performance. This year she has many dances to do, as well as two solos! We will be looking forward to going to her local competitions!

Here is the card I made especially for my granddaughter:

I bought this mini Tilda dancer in honor of my granddaughter. It is my first of what has become an ongoing collection. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I cut her out and placed her on a doily heart. It gives the look of angle wings behind the dancer! The card base is a powder blue and two small crystals embellish the upper right corner of the card.
A card just right for a dancer!

A new necklace for her birthday.

Grandma Carla designed the wooden cigar box for her lovely Granddaughter. The small carved box was from an estate. sale.
