Creative Card Crew & Totally Tilda #1 & Creative Inspirations #39

Hi girls. Thank you so much for coming to see my wee blog. I hope you find what you are looking for here and that there might even be something to inspire you with your own creation. You are all so kind for calling in each day. I value your visits and comments so much.
I made this card to enter three challenges. Creative Card Crew where they gave us a fabulous sketch to follow, the new monthly challenge Totally Tilda where they wanted "Chocolate Tilda" and Creative Inspirations where the theme was "Anything Goes".
I have inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Flower" and coloured her with my Copic Ciaos. I paper pieced her dress from an unnamed brown spotted paper that I also used for the background. The other paper is Basic Grey's "Cappella - Prima Donna". The swags and corners are cut using a Marianne Designs die in my Sizzix Bigshot. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the other bits and pieces are from my stash.
I enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it. Perhaps you could find a minute to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of it. Every comment is appreciated and treasured. I get so much from each and every one you leave.
As we enter another new week I hope all goes well at work, if you work, and that those of you with kids on school holidays have a great time with your families. Stay safe and take care.
Hugs,
