Ooops - I've done it again!!

How can one person have so many ooopses - and how many people end up having to make a card to fit the image - a bit the wrong way round lol.
Just Magnolia  have masking as their theme this week and I haven't used this Tilda as yet, I thought as she looks like she's ready for a party with all here filly petticoats I sit her on the wine/champagne glass from last year's winter colletction - great until I finished and realised it was far too big for the regular sized square card.

Tilda is coloured with Copics and I stamped around the edge of the image with a glue stamp pad. Magnolia's New Year Flourish and then glittered it (it hardly shows). The papers are a combination of Magnolia and Kars, the sort of snowflakes is made using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lys pendant and the flower in the center is from Papirloftet and has sadly photographed much darker than it is. The leaves are cut with the Sizzix branch and leaf set, and the sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms, I had intended to use a New Year stamp but it was hiding (probably packed ready for my move within the next ten days) but I will change is as soon as it comes out of hiding. The border is cut with the MS punch and ribbon and charmare from stash.

I'm probably the only person in blogland who's glad it's Monday, I've had a strange last week and weekend - half of it spent building furniture, the other half in bed - every square inch of me ached, going hot & cold, sneezing non-stop, banging sinuses.  I slept like a log last night (about 13 hours) and woke up this morning feeling great amd I've managed to fight off whatever germs were trying to take hold.

Heather your card is stunning, love the sweet Tilda and the colours you've used, beautiful embellies too. I've had the size problem with sitting Tilda on the Magnolia flower.
Glad you are feeling better today, 13 hrs wow that's marathon sleeping lol
