Tilda in Pink

Just thought my computer was sorted out and I could start catching up yet again, when suddenly everything went 'dead' on me. We had five power cuts this morning, not lasting long, but each time we got power back I had to wait for the internet to re-connect, then open it up and start all over, grrrrrrrrrr!!! Apparently some power house had a fire or explosion causing the problem. 
You know the children's game where you bash something on the head, then another pops up, then another, faster and faster - I feel like I'm playing that game at the moment. Bash one problem and another one 'pops' up. 

The upside to this is, less time on the computer = more time crafting. This card is for 
DCD Christmas Club - Christmas Tilda in Pink
I followed Sketch and Stash's sketch, my new stash is the unused Christmas sentiment from Amy R for CC Designs.
Pocketful of Posies this week is Floral Fantasy - I have flowery snowflake, if they don't count, just delete me!!


Tilda is coloured with Copics, her dress Tiara and shoes stickled with Crystal stickles, and the edges inked with Victorian Velvet. The papers are Basic Grey's Indian Summer, the border cut with an MS Punch and the swirly leaf things with a Marianne creatable. I cut the snowflakes with the Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 die and glittered them with Jones Tones Prismatico cystals (trying saying that when you've had a few). The flower centers are some I managed to buy locally (about all I have managed to buy hereabouts). The sentiment (Amy R stamps by CC Designs) is cut with Spellbinders oval nesties.

Right off to do some more commenting whilst the going is good.

Tilda's tiara is amazing & I love the rest of the colouring of her. The layering of the papers is ever so interesting & I'm starting to think outside some of my preconceived ideas about what works & what doesn't so a thank you for that. Love those flowers & the combination of the snowflakes with them as well as the swirls. I'm learning so much from your designs & am very thankful for all your encouragement.
Much love
Paula (PEP)
