Sneaky Tilda's Summer Birthday

Here's my very first Tilda card! I know she's a Christmas "Sneaky Tilda" but I think she looks ok dressed in Summer colours for a nice Birthday Card. Loved colouring her and thought I'd try and make it a nice girlie card! So chose some of my favourite Kate Knight paper which was freebie stack with magazine earlier this year. The pink paper on right is from 'Me and My Big Ideas'.

The sentiment is from 'Dreamy Days' Set at Lili of The Valley. Did you get some of those gorgeous new LOTV Christmas Stamps? I had to limit my spending to three stamps and I found it really hard choosing - they are all so adorable! 

The gorgeous Lace, Red Rose, Pink Gardenia and Pin are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little purply spray of flowers has been in my stash for years and I think it was bought from Stationery Box in a card kit. Pearls are from stash also.

This week's Wild Orchid Challenge is 'Birthday Sketch' as they are celebrating One Year! And this is the Sketch by Dena. I liked this sketch as you can use a couple of papers but there is also lots of room for embellishments! I moved the sentiment up slightly as I couldn't bear covering up the gorgeous butterfly on the paper!!

Colouring: Promarkers and Copics
Skin: E00, E02
Hair: E53, E55, Y11, E00
Clothes: Promarker Rose Pink and Blossom
Gift: Pastel Green, Soft Green
Gift Bow: R24, R29

Ooooh Sue I love it - but you know that don't you!! Tilda, my absolute favourite and you finally inked one up! This is beautiful, Wow I love those colours that KK paper is fantastic and you have coloured her perfectly, I don't think this image is just for Christmas it's perfect for any present giving occasion (that sounds posh!! lol) I hope to see more Tilda's from you now you have mastered this one.

I limited myself to just 3 LOTV new stamps too but god it was hard!!
