My Totally Tilda Challenge card

At last, I have finally made my card for the new Totally Tilda challenge blog.  I was going to make it sooner but I have had a really good excuse .... I found out the other day that a nearby craft shop has their sale on and was selling Tilda stamps 3 for the price of 2.  I just had to oblige them and go and buy some!!!

So, here's one of the 3 pretty Tilda stamps that I bought on Wednesday; I think they're all so adorable.

I coloured Tilda with my pro markers and used a bit of Cosmic Shimmer Glitter around her dress.  The paper is from Kay and Co, which I have had for absolutely ages.  I used the design of the diamond background paper as the basis to my layout.

The corner swirl is a Sizzlits die and the punched butterfly is by Martha Stewart.  The roses were from a local pound shop and the pearls are from my stash.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Tilda - Chocolate
Totally Paper Crafts - Pearls and Swirls

Oh, I almost forgot, I won a great Christmas snowman rubber stamp today in last week's Freebie Friday over at The Secret Crafter.  They have a beautiful Basic Grey paper pad up for grabs this week for one lucky follower!

Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter my blog candy - see the picture on my sidebar.
