A sweet Tilda card!

Happy Friday everyone!
Wow - another week over and hopefully a great weekend to look forward to! I'm going to have to make this a quick post and I'm on my way out to help set up and decorate the school gym for the school dance tonight!
I received a wonderful package from my mum yesterday full of Wild Orchid Craft flowers - woohoo - they are gorgeous!!
So I decided to ink up this cute Tilda as she hasn't been played with yet! I coloured her with my copics and tried a different technique this time for colouring her hair - I love the result! I'm entering this card for the February challenge over at The Little Stamp Shoppe where we are to make a 'Swedish' style Magnolia card - do you think this fits the bill? The winner of this months challenge gets a Guest DT spot - what a prize!
Papers are Magnolia which I machine-stitched around the edges. I added some cream and dusty pink lace with a pearl slider from Wild Orchid Crafts. I distressed the edges around the octagonal nestie with distress inks. The cherry blossoms are from WOC and the rest from stash. Two pearls in each corner finish off the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit - I love having you here and I really do appreciate all your comments! Gotta run - have yourselves a great Friday evening and start to the weekend!
