Sweet Tilda Birthday!!

Happy Saturday night, y'all! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend so far. We had a pretty relaxing weekend. The kids just started soccer practice last week and the games start next weekend. With 3 soccer games every Saturday and a lacrosse game every Sunday, we will be plenty busy! I just wanted to have some down time before it got crazy!

I made this Sweet Tilda card for the Magnolia March Homepage Challenge. The challenge was to create something bright and I think this fits the bill!
The DP is from my new MME Home stack that I bought at Michael's a few weeks ago. I paired it with some Old Olive and Rose Red. I used a MS border punch, one of my crocheted flowers, some fern punched leaves (of course!) and some polka dot ribbon. This DP is so busy and sparkly, I did not think it needed much more! The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps.
Here is a close-up of Sweet Tilda. I think I used pretty bright & bold colors - a little out of the box for me! I masked her off and created the background using my Copic ABS. I love that thing! When I first got my Copics, I said I would NEVER need the ABS - boy was I wrong! I can't believe I waited so long to get it. The Tilda image was cut out using some new Nesties that I got for Christmas - better late than never to use them, right?
Here are the Copics I used. In addition to them, I used some white gel pen for some dots on her cheeks.

I have had fun working on this challenge. I always want to play along on challenges, but I get so busy that by the time I get around to working on it, the challenge is long over! One of these days life will slow down and I will have more me time! Ha - maybe in 20 yrs! :)

Happy Saturday y'all! Hugs, ~Tori
