Country Tilda!

Hey there!
The challenge over at Magnolia Down Under this week is 'Move to the Country' and when I think country I picture all the wonderful homemade pies and cooking!  I had this adorable little country pantry shelf stamp from The Stamp Barn which I thought would work perfectly with this cute little Tilda in her head scarf.  She's just back from strawberry picking and getting ready to add to her pantry, lol!!
I took my square punch and punched out these dp squares and zigzag sewed them together to create a country quilt feel.  I love the result - and the gingham paper is so perfect for this card!  I just added some prima flowers either side of her and we're done!  Tilda is coloured with my Tombow markers as is the pantry shelf. The papers are from stash but the back panel is K&Co.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting today.  My hubby just left on a 2wk business trip to Europe so hopefully that means I can get in plenty of inking time during the evenings as I have only myself to keep happy once the kids are in bed!!
Hope you all have a beautiful day today - I hope the sun keeps shining for us!
Hugs,
