Here's one I actually like!!

Oooh I've made a card I really like (made a few I don't like recently) and it fits three challenges - Just Magnolia, which is pleating lace, Daring Cardmakers who would like to see pearls and I followed the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday.


I coloured Tilda with Copics and gave here dark hair for this one, she's tended to have blond hair recently. The circle is cut with a Joy embossing die. The sumptuous pleated lace is from Singapore, the lovely Rosey sent it to me before she left for Australia, haven't done any pleating for ages - November I think for a Basic Grey DT card, should do it more often as I love the effect. The gorgeous pink check paper is a download from Bearly Mine Crafts.  I cut the flower using a EK Success punch and add pearl stamens to the center and the two leaves are cut with a Woodware  punch, the sentiment is WOJ and the pearls on either side to follow the sketch are from my stash.

I can see why you really like this Heather, it's a fabulous card, one of my favorite Tilda's too, unfortunately sold out most places so I'll continue to wait for it. But love the pleated lace, and the lovely frame around Tilda.......Would you mind terribly if I added your card to my gallery in the shop blog?
