Tilda's getting romantic

Morning blogland!
Today sees the start of another brand new challenge over at 
and as love is in the air this week we would like to see your 
Valentine Tilda 
creations over the next two weeks. As you know by now, Tilda has to be the main star of your cards and projects, and this fortnight she has to be all loved up!

This time I made a variation on the tealight/easel card, it is for hubby for Valentines (don't know if he'll appreciate it or not but kept the colours less girly and although it was a struggle I managed to leave off the flowers!)

The base for the easel is made using Go Kreate's Frilly #8 die and I covered it with BoBunny Love letters paper.
Up, Up and away Tilda was coloured with TH DI's and I added some SU linen thread for the balloon string.
The Post card text is part of a Whimsy stamp.

I measured and made my own box for the heart-shaped candle (which you can't really see in these pictures :( and I created a tucked tab at the end nearest the candle (for easy removal) and a drawer at the other end to hold the cloud tag book I made for writing something slushy and sentimental on lol!

Doohickeys used: stitched scalloped lace, cloud.
I used spellbinder nestie labels 23 for the candle aperture and frame behind Tilda.
The I love You sentiment stamp is from a beautiful stamp set I was given by the lovely Susie, and the charm too - Thanks hun x

Cheesecloth, ribbon and button from stash.
I gave the sewing machine a week off and just drew on some faux stitching here and there.
