Springtime Tilda...

Hi everyone. Just a quick note to thank you all for stopping by and for all your kind comments. It's Friday and it's an absolutely gorgeous Spring day in Richmond, VA. I had the top down on my car this morning (well, it was 59 degrees...a little chilly, but it was only 7:30 I had to put on my seat heater!!). But I love driving with the top down...everything smells so fresh...especially first thing in the morning! here's a new card I put together yesterday featuring little miss Tilda with her shiny red bike! Here's the recipe:

Cardstock: Stampin Up (So Saffron & Melon Mambo)
DPs: My Mind's Eye

Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000 & R21 for cheeks
Hair: E19, 15, 11, & YR21
Shirt & pants: B97, 95, 91, 0000
Pinafore: R85, 83, 81, RV000
Shoes: R83, 81, & RV000
Socks & basket on bike: C1, C2
Bike: R37, 35, 32. 000 w/Inkssentials Glossy Accents
Flowers: BV08, 04, 01 & G28 & 24

I also used my Cuttlebug & oval nestabilities, MS butterfly & lattice punches, stickles (on butterflies); and buttons, flowers, ribbons, charm, & faux pearl (from my stash). Sentiment and hardware inside card are from Stampin-Up.

Thanks again for stopping by...hope you have a great day. Pat

Pat I could leave you outstanding comments on everyone of your cards. I had to put a short cut on my desktop so I can finish looking at all of these beauties later. You pay such special attention to detail. I love that about your cards. I love how you turned down the corners on the inside cardstock the previous card. Both inside and outside of your cards are stunning.

~Thanks for sharing your talent.

I'm not stalking - I'm just so impressed with your complex cards and simply gorgeous coloring technique. Thanks for listing the Copics you use. I'm determined to improve my coloring!
I have a Dick Blick gift card burning a hole in my pocket I NEED subdued Copics. Yes I do!
