Ribbon and Roses

Well I haven't posted anything for two months and now it's two posts in two days. I coloured up this Tilda yesterday and she was just perfect for the Totally Tilda challenge 'Ribbon and Roses', it is of course Tilda with peony rose. Well here she is
I coloured in with my Copics of course and used the following colours
Skin-E000, E00, E50
Hair-E25, E27
Bow- R59
Rose- R27, R59 and blender pen Stem-G24
Dress- E00, E53
Lace Trim- E43, E57
Shoes- E57

The patterned paper I used was from Kaszazz and is called 'Emily Rose', you can see the litlle rose buds on the background paper it is so sweet. I then used various shades of brown and cream cardstock from my stash. I used my cricut to cut out the accent and inked it up with Walnut Stain. The little roses I had in my stash and I used Kaiser pearls for the corners. This year I have decided that I am going to try and use what I already have after I spend my Christmas money that is LOL. I have two orders coming from the states and then I am going to restrain myself and use what I already have. I may have to break that promise for new cardstock but no patterned paper, embelishments or stamps. (I have already thought a way around the new Magnolia release if I get them as a gift for my birthday it doesn't count, thats my theory and I'm sticking to it LOL) Here are some close ups of the card.
