Spring has sprung

Isn't this one of the sweetest little Tilda's you have ever laid eyes on?? This is another card using some of the loveliness provided to me by the lovely Kellie an the Magnolia Down Under Store (I'm such a lucky girlie!) She is called Tilda with flowing hair and she is coming soon, and currently 15% off, as are all stamps, BARGAIN! You can find almost everything in this card in store with the exception of the card stock, rose and bit of bling in the corner, the doily is coming soon. When I saw these papers I just new I had to use them first, they are sooo gorgeous, but once I had Tilda all coloured and ready and some flowers, the perfect charm, etc, etc, I had the hardest time deciding on a layout and I could not find a sketch that was working for me. So it took a couple of days (ok, the best part of a week) of me sitting at my desk shuffling the papers around and cutting and gluing and then changing my mind and starting over before I ended up with this. I'm not really thrilled with the final product but it's much better than some of the other things I came up with, lol!
I chose this sentiment (from an old stampin' up set I had lying around) because I thought the nice cheerful colours might brighten up the day of someone not feeling their best. It also shows that this little beauty, even though she is an Easter stamp, can be used for anything. I'm even thinking of making a mothers day card with her next :)
Phew, what a waffle, here's the card: Apologies for the wonky photo, it looks straighter on the bottom so I don't know what happened there, too much to drink I guess, hahaha!

Ok, this little Tilda creation is going to be playing along with a few challenges today...
Creative card crew - going dotty (dots on my yellow dp)
Creative Inspirations - white, yellow and green
Cupcake craft challenges - going green
Simon says - A splash of green
Secret crafter Saturday challenge - spring has sprung

All of that struggle deciding what papers go where but we wouldn't know that by looking at it. It looks gorgeous. Love the colour scheme an you've coloured her up beautifully. Must be the season as I've just coloured up mine too.
