Ooops an easel card

Those of you who know me will know I regularly make a card upside down or back to front. My solution to this is to turn it into an easel card - here comes another one. I swear each time I will NOT do it again, but I do!!

This one is following the sketch at Create4fun and the theme of One for the Girls at Just Magnolia


Tilda is coloured in Copics and cut out with round nestabilities,  I cut an extra thin circle and set it off center.I The edges of the images are inked and the extra stardust is  a Lavinia stamp.. The bp is Magnolia and the strip a download, the sentiment WOJ, the corners Provocrafts vintage corners and  a Spellbinders fancy tags label used to cut label  on the inside. The flowers are from  my stash and the flourishes cut with a Marianne die. I used stardust stickles on the 'stardust'. the edges of the circles, the corners and the two flourishes.

Copics used
Skin  YR0000, E00, E02, R20
Clothes  B0000, B91, B93, B95
Hair  Y0000, E70,  E71, E77, E31

It was my Grandaughter's confirmation yesterday and luckily the weather was kind to us. I thought I would have photographs to share with you, but bird brain here took my camera and after 2 photographs - the battery ran out - grrrrrr -  there's really no hope for me!!

I had to laugh - know it only too well & am constantly having to think my way out of yet another one (the serendipity of design). Thanks for such inspirational encouragement.

Love your card, such a beautiful Tilda and fabulously coloured as always with such gorgeous papers too. Glad the confirmation went well even if the photo's didn't :)! Will email you as I'm sure I was cutting something out to send to you but I can't for the life of me remember what it was :).
