Wishing You a Very Happy Birthday Tilda!!

Happy Tuesday night, y'all!! I will keep this pretty short tonight as I am about ready to crash. I also am very sore from 2 days of working out. It has been a while since I have worked out and am really trying to get into a routine. Anyhow, my knees feel like they are the size of watermelons from all of the cycling over the past 2 days! LOL! I guess there are worse things, eh? No pain, no gain, right? I'll take a little less pain and a lot more gain tonight, though! LOL!

This card features Sweet Tilda and Open Gate - I think they are on back order at Magnolia-licious right now - sorry!
I could not wait to rip into my new Basic Grey Going Green DP - lovin' it! It goes nicely with Blush Blossom and Old Olive. I airbrushed the hydrangea flowers with some R01 & YR15 Copic Marker. The sentiment comes from Amy R's Birthday Sentiments. The ferns and leaves are Martha Stewart punches as well as the border punch. I am submitting this card for Just Magnolia's Anything Goes challenge this week!!
Here is a close-up of Tilda. I masked her to stamp the gate and then masked it along with her to airbrush the sky with some B21 marker. I colored the ground with Copics - i did not airbrush this (shocking, I know! LOL!)
Here are the Copics I used - I promise I did not use the whole color line, but it sure felt like it when I started bundling these up to photograph them! I think this is the most I have ever used on 1 card.

Okay, going to bed now! Be sure to check back tomorrow - I will have a Tilda Mother's Day card to show you. On Thursday, I will be back with a PCS goodie - be sure to stop by then too!
Hugs, ~Tori
