OMG It's taken me since the 3rd of March to finish this card...


... is that a world record???? LOL
I started on the 3rd, I stamped & colored the background & Tilda & added litter then disaster struck I dropped Tilda & all the glitter came off :( so I re-stamped & coloered Tilda & glittered her wings & left her to dry, then everyday I've gotten her out but couldn't think of a way to put the card together, until today when it came together like this!!!

The card stock is from the Paper Mill, paper DCWV, Nesties label 4, Butterfly Background & Tilda by Magnolia stamped in Memento & colored with Pro Markers, X-Cut flower punch, Nellie Snellen branch punch, Dovecraft greetings, plain & scalloped circle nesties & oodles of diamond stickles!!!

I REALLY like the way this card has turned out (even if I do say so myself!!!)
I may even struggle to give her away, acutally I don't know anyone with a birthday soon so phew she can stay for a while!!!

Pro Markers used: Tilda Skin Ivory & Dusky Pink, Hair Primrose, Hat, Shirt & Boots Pink Carnation, Jeans Meadow Green, Background, grass Meadow Green & Leaf Green, Sky Pastel Blue, Daisies Rose Pink & Lemon, Sun Lemon.

What a lovely card. I can see why you would want to keep it. But, hey, my birthday is in June and if you still have it...just joking, but anyone would be thrilled to get this piece of artwork. Shirley
