Where are you from???

I'm from England!
Over at Three Clovers the theme is to make card with the theme of "where are you from?" at first I was really stuck 'cos I thought of Newcastle and the Angel of the North, but how do you make Tilda look like a big rusty sculpture?!?!?! Then I remembered my Tilda with rain cloud, and as its nearly always raining here I thought it would fit well, my first thought was to go with a Union Jack (I prefer British to English) but that was gonna be too much like hard work so I went for St Georges' colors Red & White & tried to make the background to look like the flag, but not too much like a flag.
This card also fit in the Simon Says theme of Happy Mail.
Card blank from my stash, card stock from paper mill, white card has been embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Magnolia Tilda & rain cloud stamped in memento & colored with pro markers & stickles & ribbon from my stash.

I am not a fan of Tilda, but your card seems to capture England weather very well! I live in Cambridge, TFS
