April Showers

Good morning everyone, happy Thursday to you.  I hope your week has been going well, ours is okay here but we're stuck indoors as its keeps raining so we can't do any of the outside stuff we were going to so we may just do some baking instead. 
I thought I'd show you my latest card today which is a criss cross card.  Love making these they're so simple and look lovely.  I decided to hunt out one of my favourite Tilda's and coloured her up with copics.  Here's a piccie of the card all together.
Image:  Magnolia Tilda 'Tilda celebrates summer'
Medium:  copics
Papers:  GCD studios 'Ella Blue'
Flowers:  a mixture from stash and Wild Orchid Crafts
Dies:  Magnolia Doohickey heart, Marianne Creatables border &
Spellbinders 'Fleur de Lis rectangles'
Lace and ribbon from stash
A bit of a close up piccie next of the super sweet image.  I added tiny pink gems to her headress and flower wreath and tear drop gems as raindrops.

Copics used
Dress/shoes:  B91, B93, B95, B97, B99 & W00, W1, W3, W5
Flowers:  R81, RV17 & G20, G24, G28
Hair:  E70, E71, E77
Last piccie shows the inside of the card where you can write your message.  Its quite a large card as I went for an 8 x 8 this time so you can see more of the gorgeous papers.  I so love these and will be so upset when they're all gone.  Everything has been distressed with Tim Holtz walnut stain and the flowers have been Stickled.
Challenges I would like to enter:
Okay time for me to dash catch up with you later peeps.
