Thank you Tilda card

I made this Thank you card using Secretive Tilda, isnt she a doll? A friend of mine sent me this image, and I think she might be one of my new faves!!!! I think I might be ordering her for myself today!!! shhhhhh LOL
I chose to stick with some Autumn colors of brown and orange. I love the color combo, and think these design papers are delish. :)
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to use vellum or tissue paper, so I chose to use tissue paper to make an embellishment. I made this large Orange flower out of tissue paper. I glimmer misted white tissue paper with Oriental Poppy Glimmer Mist. I then dried with my heat gun til it started to crinkle up a bit. Then I used my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and cut the flower layers (about 10 pieces of tissue paper). I then stacked then up, put a brad through the middle, and scrunched it up til I liked the result. I think it turned out pretty cute!!! I also used some prima flowers, glimmer misted in Chocolate Covered Cherries, and some mini roses. I added some gold beads to the center of the Prima Flowers for some added pop!
I cut these cute corner brackets with my cricut, Storybook cartridge. I then added stickles to them to give them some added sparkle and shine!!!! I also added stickles to the rose bunch to give that added pop!
I colored Tilda with copics -
skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E53, E25, E27, E29
Overalls - B91, B95, B97, YR01
Shirt and bows - YR0000, YR000, YR00, YR01
Flower bunch - R85, R81, G24, G21, G20, E40, E42
