Tilda as newspapergirl

Afbeelding
I made this card for the birthday of my daughter's MIL-to-be, who does a newspaper route every day. I think this Tilda fits just perfectly. I cut her out with nestabilities eight as I also did with the pink cardstock beneath it. Papers are old and out of my stash, so I don't remember the name of it. I bought the lace a while ago when we were on the market in Rotterdam. The striped pink and brown ribbon is from a candy which I won at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts with leaves from McGill punch. Dew drops are won at Simon Says and the pink gems are bought at Zeeman, a cheap Dutch store. Here's a close-up of that sweet girl: I coloured the "lace" on her clothing with a pink Sakura pen, put some embossing powder on it and heated it with my heatingtool. These are the copics used: With this card I will enter the next challenges: Just Magnolia : sketch Totally Tilda : Glitter and sparkle Magnolia Down Under : Flowers and lace The Creative Cott

Debs honoured me with this award: Faye gave me this one: And Brenda granted me with this one: I feel sorry that it took so long before I showed them on my blog...but I was very busy lately and I think I have everything 'in control' now! Thanks again for these awards and I will ask anyone who wants them to take them away, because I have seen them on many blogs already and it takes too much time to figure out who has which one and I love all of your blogs and so you deserve them all!!!!. xxx Margreet
