Tilda With Flowing Hair

Hi everyone!  I'm back with a lovely Tilda card to share today!  I colored this image a few weeks ago and just love how she turned out.  I watched some of these copic coloring videos by Suzanne Dean and used some of her color combinations too.

The cute image used on today's card is the Tilda With Flowing Hair rubber stamp by Magnolia.  I distressed the edges of the image and patterned paper using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and added tons of stitching.  The swirls are a Sixxiz Die Cut and all the pretty flowers are from the Prima Fleur Nursery Tales Collections.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Hi, Karen, I love you card! The design elements are all so complimentary that it is obvious that this is a well thought out wonderfully executed project. I loved our mesh ribbon so much that I went out and purchased A LOT! Thanks for the inspiration from this beauty. Thanks for playing with us at Stamp-N-Doodle!
