Charlston Tilda with love

Well I am back to work tomorrow and wanted to get this card finished and posted before I return to the routine. I love this Tilda and needed some down time the other night so I thought I would just colour. When I looked at her I thought I bet you would love some ruby red dancing shoes and so the shoes inspired Charleston Tilda. It was then when I was looking through my blog challenge calendar. Yes I know its tragic but I have a calendar to keep track of all the blogs I am following and gee is it making my life easier. The following card I am entering in a number of challenges
Just Magnolia- Going Dotty
Magnolia Down Under Challenge- Embossing (Dry)
Totally Tilda- With lots of hearts
Die Cut Dreams- Lots of hearts but No sentiment
Magnolia Stamp Lovers- Glitter

Well here she is....
I have coloured her in with Copic markers in the following combinations
Skin- E000, E50, R20
Dress- R22, R27, R59
Rose- R20, G24
Hair- C1, C7, 100
Shoes- R27

I used the following paper, the red with white spot paper is from Kaiser 'Fun Fair Trapeze'. I also used red and whit card stock from my stash. I cut the dot paper out with my Cricut using the Accent Essentials cartridge using the blacked out scallop frame. I also used the same cartridge to cut the hearts which vary in size from 2 1/2 to 3 inches. After I cut the hearts out I ran them through my Cuttlebug using the swiss dots and divine swirls folders. I then used Stickles- Candy Cane for Tilda's shoes, rose and the large background heart, I also used Rock Candy on her wings. I then used left over commas and question marks from a pack of Thickers as accents on the page and the red hearts were brads I had in my stash.
Here is the card on the inside and I will also include some close ups of Tilda. I reversed the paper order but kept the same shapes and I am really pleased with the contrast. Until next time.....
