My new Tilda ;-)

I made this card following Simonne's fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-)

The lovely Tilda is one of the new ones that I pre ordered a whila ago. I have no idea what she is called ,,, :-) I coloured her with my fave copics and used a frame to try to make it look like she is holding onto it ,,, not sure I achieved that ,,, but I think it looks OK ! :-)

The papers are Basic Grey from the Wassail paper pad. The corners are spellbinders die cuts that were embossed and then stencilled with gold ink ,, to make them look 'verdigris' I also inked the frame with gold too, then threaded a ribbon through :-)
the sentiment is a WOJ one ,, which I masked part of as it says 'Celebrate the Everyday' which I can never quite understand ,,, ! :-/

I used some lovely gold lace ribbon ,,, prima flowers and a lovely charm that was a gift from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp :-) These lovely new Magnolia stamps will soon be availabe to order at Simon Says Stamp ,, I will keep you posted ! :-)

I am entering this into a few challenges :-
The Charisma Cardz Challenge ,,,, whose theme is Celebrate ,, they are celebrating their 1st Birthday ,,,woo hoo CONGRATULATIONS !! and they have a blog hop too ,,, love them ! will be hopping later :-)
The Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge ,,, who have their very first Challenge and have the theme 'New Anything' I used my new Tilda stamp :-)
The Roses on Paper Challenge who ask us to use our favourite mediums ,, 'Copics !! :)
The Stamp Something Challege whose theme is New Somethings :-)
