Tilda with Parasol

Hi girls, thanks for calling by again. It's great to have you here. We seem to be enjoying a partial respite from the snow because there has been a definite thaw on here. The bad news is we are told to expect more next week. I hope you are all keeping cosy and warm.
I made this card for the Sketch and Stash challenge and didn't post it in time because I got my days mixed up but then it would be a shame not to post it so here it is.
I inked up Magnolia's "Romantic Tilda with Parasol" and coloured her using my Copics and Polychromos Pencils. the papers are SEI's "Juliette - sweet perfume" and "Claire - eloquent. I used Bazzil Bling as a mount along with some fawn pearlised card.. the embellishments are felt brads and Wild Orchid flowers. the whole card has been sprayed with gold and I have edged her frilly bits in gold as well.
I hope you will find a spare minute to leave a comment because I love to know what you thing and value your opinions. It's also nice to know who has been visiting.
I hope you all stay safe and healthy and have a fabulous weekend.
Love and Hugs,


  1. Very pretty card Fiona! Tilda is adorable and I love the papers and colours! I love how you embellished with the felt brads - it looks beautiful on the card! Glad to hear you're having a thaw ... at least you get some respite before the next load arrives! Stay warm & safe!
    Hugs, Danielle
