Meet my new Tilda

I was so excited to receive a new Magnolia stamp in the mail this week from the Magnolia Down Under Store, I could not wait to get her inked up, and she was a dream to colour! My other Tildas are a little smaller and fiddlier to colour than the 60's Tilda, my biggest problem was deciding what colours to use, somehow they usually end up pink! I don't know why that is, with this one I thought the image was so girly it seemed appropriate, but I really wanted to do her in green... maybe next time (I plan to colour another one of her when I finish posting, what can I say, she is fab!)
With this card I used the sketch from Magnolia Down Under Challenges, I did not realise how great a sketch it was until I started making my card and everything came together so easily, it almost made itself. I know, I know, another easel card! they are sooo much fun, but this will be the last one, for a little while anyways :)
So here it is, all propped up:
A close up of the top of the card:
And a close up of Tilda, adorable isn't she? I have used crystal effects on her lollipop to make it shiny and delicious. The colours in the pic are a little paler than in real life, the hair came out alright but the dress looks washed out.
Ok, down to business, this card plays along with:

Phew! I crammed a lot in with that one, most of those were a coincidence as I really just focused on the sketch when I was putting it together.
Thank you all so much for dropping by an taking a look, I really appreciate you taking the time to come over :)

Aaaw Fran this is just adorable!!! I have resisted this Tilda but this is the 2nd amazing card I've seen done with her today - guess Kellie will be making another sale - LOL. The faux stitching and glittery flowers are THE perfect finishes for this beauty! Fabulous
