Tilda Unwrapped

Happy Wednesday, Ya'll! Hope everyone is having a good morning so far!

I finally have had a chance to create another Tilda card! I have been really swamped over the last few weeks with company, spring break, sports for my kids and DT work. I have not had much time to just sit and play. I am looking forward to some down time this summer to get back to creating.

This is Unwrapped Tilda. She was part of the Christmas collection, but is perfect for birthday cards too! I got her from Diana over at Magnolia-licious and she is currently in stock!!This sketch is from Friday Sketchers. I used some Pale Plum cardstock to go along with the We R Memory Keepers Madame Royale DP. I inked the sentiment and around Tilda with some Kiwi Kiss ink. The sentiment is one of Amy R's Birthday sentiments - hands down, one of the best investments I ever made! Tilda is layered on top of a Peony Nestibility die-cut panel. The bottom flowers are prima and the small roses on top are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Love, love, love this store and will be placing another order soon! I curled the 'tails' from the roses around a thin paint brush to create the squigglies! I finally found another Martha Stewart fern punch - my other one broke! The ribbon is from Offray.
Here is a close-up of this sweetie. I really like the soft colors on this card. I colored her with the following Copics:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress & Socks- V91, 93, 95, E40, 41, 42
Box - E40, 41, 42, 43, 45
Hair - E50, 53, 55, 59
Wrapping - YG00, 21, 95
Shadow - W1, 3, Colorless Blender

This card is 5x5 in size and decided to leave it blank inside.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day! ~Tori
