Tilda with Small Gift Birthday Card

Hello friends... gosh, it seems like ages since I last typed a post.  Thank you so much for your visits, I really appreciate you popping around and leaving such lovely comments for me to read!

It is a very hectic period for me at work right now... we have a staff conference coming up in 2 weeks and there's loads of work for me to do before then, so my crafting time has almost ground to a halt!  Not to even mention my blog-hopping time.... I'll catch up soon, promise!

Kendall asked me to make a birthday card for her to give to a colleague of hers at work who is celebrating her birthday on Monday.  As I received this new little Tilda with Small Gift as a gift in the post, she suggested that I use her on the card... I was only too happy to oblige... hope you like it!

The base of my card is white and the patterned paper is from MME, but the name has been cut away, so I can't share that with you, sorry!  I added a piece of spotted paper for contrast and found some flowers amongst the new one's I purchased from Paola, to match the colours in the striped paper.  How lucky was that?

I went all out and decorated the inside of the card as well, here's a small peek (above) and then just to end a close up of our little Tilda (below), which I coloured with Copics.  I added some dimension glaze to make those bits and pieces "pop".

She is such a cutie, don't you think?  I hope Gabrielle will like her... happy birthday!

I so enjoy your visits and reading your comments. Thanks once again for popping around to say hello. hugs Sharon x
