Fairytale Tilda

The sketch used for this card is from "A Gem of a Challenge".

The image used for this one is "Fairytale Tilda" from Magnolia.  Isn't she cute?  She has been coloured using Promarkers and the wings have had glitter glue added to make them really sparkle although the photo doesn't really show this very well :-(  I've used my scalloped nestability to frame the image and whilst leaving the die in place as a mask have used distress ink "antique linen" around the edges.

The papers are from Doodlebug Designs baby girl kit and are called "pastel candy dots" and "lovely lime pinstripes" and I've distressed the edge of the pinstripe paper with Tim Holtz distress ink - shabby shutters.

The sentiment is from the Lily of the Valley "Dreamy Days" sentiment set.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.
