Tilda Birthday

I had a fun time creating this card. I started black leather craft for the base card. Next a layer of the beautiful Heather Bailey paper I received. Just love the colours. A black scalloped edge cirlce Nestabilities. I coloured this Tilda that I received in an image swap over at Craftmad. I coloured her with my SU Soft Subtles Inkspots and my two copics. Yes, Stacie, I finally had a go with the pen you sent the colour. I have added glitter to her dress and wings. Then cut her out with my plain circle nestabilities and added the black sticker Happy Birthday greeting. To finish off the card I have added three flowers that I created by cutting
rough freehand circles and then crumpling the paper up, open out and rub over with an emery board. My daughter and I had a chuckle as I was madly going through the rubbish as I had accidentally thrown one of the centres out. Here I am looking through rubbish for a crumpled circle. hmmmmmm

This card was created partly because of my Weekly Inspiration Challenge over at Craftmad. Which was one ribbon (mine got cut into three pieces), two yellow beads...centre of flowers, three flowers. The other reason for creating this card was to have a go at the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #37 which is 'Happy Birthday'. They are celebrating one year of challenges and I joined in their blog hop and was very very inspired to drag out a Tilda image.
