Fussy & Fancy Friday #17

Hi girls, Thanks for dropping in. I hope all is well with you and that you are having a good day. I went to hospital yesterday and although the consultant was pleased with me he said I was to stay on the oxygen machine for the next six months at least, albeit on a slightly reduced rate of oxygen. I have also been given an overnight monitor to put on to see what happens to my blood oxygen while I'm sleeping (let's hope I sleep better than I have been recently).
We are getting toward the end of the week already and it's time to post a card for a Friday challenge. I intend to enter this one into Fussy & Fancy Friday since I based it on the fabulous sketch they gave us. It's the first time I have entered this challenge and I love the detail they put in the sketch.
I have inked up Magnolia's "Midsummer Tilda Dancing" and coloured her using my Copics and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection. I used Marianne Design and Creatables to make the swirls and the panel on which to stamp Tilda. The flowers are from my stash. I trust that you will like this card enough to let me know what you think of it. Your opinions are valued and I always look forward to reading what you say.
Remember that today is day 5 of Teri's digi giveaway over at Delicious Doodles. So nip over and see what is on offer today by clicking on the advert in my sidebar and get the details of Teri's competition to win 10 of her fantastic digi images. Her artwork is amazing.
Have a great day and enjoy any crafting you get time to do. Stay safe and healthy.

Love and Hugs,
