Tilda with Tag Thanks You

This card made top 5 at Magnolia Down Under!!!!

My newest creation!! Here is a Thank you card I created using Tilda with Tag from the Valentine's release last year. This is an image I received from a friend of mine, and this is definitely a stamp I am going to HAVE to purchase, isnt she a doll? Plus, she can be used for so many occasions.
I used my new Basic Grey jovial card kit for this project. I do not have the paper pack, but I won the card kit from 7 Kids College Fund, adn thought I could use the pre-cut cards, and use it for my design paper, and it worked out great! I LOVE this paper, the colors are so rich and just gorgeous. It is not your typical Christmas paper, so it can be used for many occasions too! I added a red ribbon and bow, then put a white button in the center tied off with some red thread.
I added some prima flowers to the corner of the card that I painted with Cherry Glimmer mist. I also threw in one of my Tim Holtz journaling tags to the corner for an added touch. I hardly ever think to throw these in but what a great finishing touch it made to the corner bouquet.
My new years resolution was to finish off the inside of all of cards as I make them. I have been keeping it so far. Here is the simple inside of my card. I left room for a nice personal sentiment. this really shows off the design paper too, isnt it so pretty.
I colored this cutie with copics.
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E25, E57, E59
Dress and socks - R20, R24, R27, R29, W1, W3
Tag - E40, E41, E42, E43, R27, R29
Shading - W1, W3, W5, B000

I also distressed the background Tilda is on with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress ink. I stamped my Tim Holtz splatter stamp on the edges for some added interest. I LOVE this technique, it just adds that something special!!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Crafts - Something New (New paper)
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with Buttons
