Shabby Chic Tilda

I just LOVE my Tilda's. I especially love the Butterfly Dreams Collection, and had a bit of a play in my craft room, and here is what I came up with. I used Tilda with Lace Jeans and Magnolia with butterfly.
I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for this card. I used my Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper stack for this card. I absolutely LOVE this paper, it is my current favorite! I backed everything with Kraft Cardstock, my favorite for Shabby Chic looking cards. I cut my image out with circle and scalloped circle nesties, and layered them on top of a circle Lace paper doily.
I colored Tilda and Magnolia with copics.
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R32
Hair - E27, E25, E31, E50
Overalls - B91, B95, B0000, R02
Shirt and Hair bow - R02, R01, R00, R0000
Shoes- E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Magnolia - E35, E33, E31, E50

I added my usual Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, but through in some Petalloo flowers too! I used Wild Orchid 25mm pink roses, a two-toned light blue cherry blossom, and two cream Aster Daisies. Then I added some Petalloo white Violet stem flowers and some of the Cantebury Vine Stem in cream. LOVE them!!! I also punched some branches with Martha Stewart Frond punch to add to the arrangement.
