Signs of spring



Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week. A card to show today with the sweet Celebration Tilda, I think she can work as a sitting Tilda but also looks as if she could be jumping up in the air so that's how I imagined her for this scene. Tilda and the scene are painted with distress inks and distress ink markers and I've created a handbag shaped card for my die cutting maching which I cut from blossom pink Bazzil card. I've added faux stitching, die cut letters, gems and stickles to decorate  and punched flowers which I think look like blossoms so I can enter Cute Card Thursday's challenge for this week which is 'signs of spring'

Have a lovely weekend!

Beautiful card Chris! Absolutely adorable - love the shape and your coloring is totally gorgeous also. I especially love how you color in your hills and far away trees. I wish I could see how you color in the grass and the dots of flowers. I will be studying this photo for awhile ;) hugs, Angela
