Summer Flower Tilda

Hi everyone I've got a little time to jump on here and show you my finished card as hubby's just come in from work and the kiddies are catching up with him.  Anyway, I treated myself to this Tilda last week as I've been wanting her for a while as well as the Spellbinders frame.  I was after the floral ovals set but that seems to be sold out in most places so I went for the fleur de lis rectangles and they are very pretty.
She's been coloured with promarkers for the most part and I used the fine nib attachment to get in the small places and I must say its fab for detail.  I did liquid pearl dots around the image and whilst still wet sprinkled with glamour dust and I think it looks really pretty.  The diecut message butterfly I found lurking in my old stash. 

Dress:  almond, pale pink, dusky rose
Wings:  pastel green, soft green
Hair:  copics E43, E47, E49

Papers:  First Edition 'Summer Breeze'
Dies:  Magnolia doohickey, spellbinders 'fleur de lis' rectangles
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts & pearl brad
Challenges I would like to enter:
Okay my time is up now folks, I think the kiddies have finished talking ten to the dozen at their dad and believe me they had a lot to say so I think his head is probably spinning and its time for me to dish up a late dinner.
Its going to seem quiet tomorrow as they are both back at school after half term break but I have a topsy turvy house to clean so I'm sure that will keep me occupied, that is until I take a coffee break and head into my craft room he he!!!!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, take care and happy crafting.
