Tilda in Blue - Just for the Fun of it.

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in on me. I hope you have had a restful weekend and that you are fit and ready for the week ahead. I know some of you have been a bit under the weather and I hope that you are all on the mend. Hopefully your visit here will bring a little sunshine and that you will find something you like.
This card was not made for any specific challenge. I was just playing around in the craftroom with some bits and pieces and this is the result. I quite enjoyed just playing about so I thought it would be worth sharing with you. The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Lamb" and I have coloured her using my Copics. The papers are a mix of Stampin Up and downloads and I used dark blue Bazzil as a mount. I used a stencil to create the large backing circle and heat embossed using pale blue embossing powder. The flowers are punched out in dark and pale blue card and I have used liquid pearls from my stash.
I got a lot of pleasure out of making this and I hope you like it. It would be fantastic if you had time to leave a comment to let me know what you think of it. Constructive criticism is always useful.
I hope you have a successful day and that you manage to stay safe and healthy.
