Totally Gorjuss Challenge 12

Hello friends... and a very warm welcome to my new followers. Thanks for popping by and joining, I'll be catching up with you soon...  Totally Gorjuss have a fabulous sketch for this week's challenge, pop around and join the fun!!   Here's my little entry for this week, hope you like it.  I had such fun with this one.  Tried something new... check this out

Paper:  Base of my card is an Aqua colour, for matting I used a lovely Chocolate Cocoa Brown and plain Green and Blue
DP: Beautiful designer paper from the pack I purchased at CNA
Image: Beach Tilda... isn't she adorable?  It was love at first sight when I saw this little cutie that I just had to have her and I am so pleased I did.  Coloured her in with my Copics.  I've done a background for the second time on my images, this is a new stamp from a local company purchased from Charmaine's shop. It's a rock on the left side with some grass on the right.  I used another stamp of reeds on the right hand side to give it more balance. So, my Tilda is sitting on the grass.
Embellies: Pearls, ribbon and tiny rhinestones from Paola's Shop.  The rose, leaves and butterfly from my old stock.
Sentiment: Typed myself

Same card taken from another angle, don't you just love that background?  I must admit, I was very pleased with the outcome of this one and will definitely be using it again.

Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment, as I always enjoy reading them.  Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and we'll chat again soon... tons of hugs, Sharon

I thought I would just post a quick pic of the pack of DP (Designer Paper) I purchased at CNA. This is what it looks like. I will definitely be looking out for more of these. Very economical!

See all those fabulous designs. Lots of pinks, blues, browns and cream.
