This is my second card I made for the Craftmad October Card Swap which was to swap two cards using a large letter or number.
I started with the blank white card then a layer of Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant.  Next a layer of this lovely patterned paper which was in the very first prize I ever won in blogland.  I then used my Spellbinder dies to cut out the topper.  I had stamped Tilda on white card stock and then cut around her legs and had them sit outside the Spellbinder while I cut the remaining circle.  I have coloured Tilda with my copic pens.    I still love that with my limited colours I can still get pretty close to most patterned paper colours.  Shhhh....don't tell anyone but I decided to add the stamped swirls as background behind Tilda.....I smudged a couple.  doh!!!  Then I added some gold sticker bits to add bling and cover mistakes. :-)
I have used these lovely tiny black Happy Birthday stickers.   Removed the birthday 'B' and replaced it with the large 'B' rub -on.  I like the effect.

Well another day is rolling on by and another month.....Christmas is speeding towards us very fast.
Take care and have a fun day.
