Tilda as newspapergirl

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 Cottage: Sparkle and bling

Thanks very much for popping around here and I hope you will leave me a comment, so I know that you have been here. I hope your day is a good and dry one, because here it is hopeless.
