Thinking of You Tilda with Lilacs

Rhonda sent me some wonderful stamped Tilda's and I just had to get busy on this one. Thank you again Rhonda. The Tilda's with the long hair remind me so much of my daughter. They're just precious. Even though I don't have many copic markers yet I was able to do her completely with copics. I think this is the most elaborate I've ever made a card and don't have a clue how it's going to fit in an envelope. I guess I'll just have to keep her. LOL I made this one 6x6  but I think I'll do the next 5x5.



I crocheted the flowers while waiting for my daughter's guitar lesson. The cartouche is cut from the Sweethearts cart and the butterfly is cut from acetate using the Indie Art cart. The stamp is from Stampendous. I even dug out my sewing machine and stitched around my paper.
