A Spring Tilda!

Good Morning all!
Thanks for all your well wishes - I'm feeling much better and got a chance to craft yesterday after all!
I have this new sweet Spring Tilda to show you today.  I received this beautiful image from my sweet friend, Linda, thanks so much!!  She is coloured with my copics and trimmed out.  I made Tilda a red-head for the first time - do you like her with auburn hair?  I'm quite pleased with it!  The paper is from the gorgeous new BG Green At Heart pad and I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week.  The cherry blossom flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and edged with lots of lovely sparkly Stickles!  I punched out branches using the MS punch and machine stitched around the edges of the card and panels.  The ribbon is from stash and I added a sweet butterfly embellishment that I picked up in the Dollar Store - adds more of a 'spring' touch to the card don't you think?!  I used Flower Soft for the flowers in Tilda's basket.
I spritzed the card with Tattered Angels Pearl mist so apologies for how the camera has picked it up in the photo!  All the panels are distressed with my Tim Hotlz distressing tool.

I've managed to get this card into quite a few challenges:
Friday Sketchers - Sketch by Beatrix
Quixotic Challenges - Joys of Spring
Totally Papercrafts - Distressing
Stamp Something - Stitch Something
The Stamp Shoppe - Pastels/Spring
Just Magnolia - Punch it Out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope you all have a wonderful start to the week!  I appreciate all the comments you leave - they bring a ray of sunshine to my day!

Hi Danielle,
Glad to hear you are feeling better. I do like the red hair for Tilda, I haven't really done it myself much but certainly a look I want to do more of. i think your card is beautiful and I like the butterfly too, it certainly says "spring" to me. Take care, and thanks for playing along this week.
