Birthday Tilda

Well good morning it is so cold and windy here. I mean't to do this post last night but like every holiday I have to squeeze every single item of craft into my two weeks off. Last night I had to finish knitting my sons new beanie. He has officially jumped off the Geelong bandwagon and now follows the Bombers and after our first loss this season to them it made even harder LOL. Anyway here is a card that I have made for one of the many birthdays that are celebrated in July. I am entering this card in two challenges the first is TOMIC an easel card and at Simply Magnolia anything goes. I made this card for my friends birthday and I must admit I nearlly gave up but I am so glad I kept going. Here is Birthday Tilda on a cake easel card.
This is the card closed and here is the inside.

I am so pleased with the results it took a while to find candles that fit the holes so when I did find them I bought up. Here is the card with the candles.
Finally here is a close up of Tilda I have coloured her with Copics using the following colours.

Dress- R83 and R85
Shoes- E15 and E33
Cake- V12, V15, E31 and E33
Hair- E25, E27 and E 37
Skin- E00, E50 and E 20

The paper was pink cardstock and the cupcake paper is from Kaiser craft. I have also been scrapbooking and will post some images later. I also want to share my Dresden plate quilt that I have finally finished and I am going to have it professionally quilted as it is too big for me to do on my machine. Not bad and its only the second day of the holidays!
