Tilda - A Birthday Card!


I managed to get some 'me' time in my craft room and I wanted to play with my new Distress Ink colours - oooh they are delish!

I decided to ink up a Tilda that has sat unloved for a while. She is such a sweetie and she looks so pretty in these gorgeous colours. I coloured her using Brushed Sage, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar & Pumice Stone. Vintage Photo for her hair and Tattered Rose & Tea Dye for her face.

Papers are from GCD Designs 'No Worries' range. I pulled out my new MS Garden Trellis punch which is stunning and used the MS butterfly punch too. Sentiment is from PB and flowers are stash (the asters come from Wild Orchid Crafts).

I've used Bev's sketch which is this weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia. I will also enter this into Totally Papercrafts to use 'Things with Wings', Magnolia Down Under to make a birthday card and Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is 'Spring'. Woo, 4 challenges!!
Magnolia Down Under are celebrating their 1st Birthday with a fabulous Birthday Blog Hop! Be sure to go and check out their fantastic creations and join in with the fun - there are lots of prizes to be won on the way too!!

Thanks for your visit today - I hope you have the time to leave a comment! And thank you if you do! I hopped around this morning to my fave blogs but didn't have time to leave a lot of comments so I'm off now to do some more!
