Discover Tilda!!!

I think I am going for a record, my third post in a week, I have also made another card for a friend and I am in the middle of making a card box. Thank you to Alethea for the awesome tutorial link. I tried another one and it was a disaster. Although its not perfect its good for a test run. Anyway back to discovery Tilda. I coloured this Tilda to go with the beautiful Graphic 45 paper I bought last week. I have always loved the monochromatic/sepia look so decided to give it a go. Then Make It Colourful bought out their texture challenge and I think my ground fits that criteria.  I was thinking about this card for ages (well a day) and decided to hide a bookmark on the inside and I think that this fits the MDUC shhh it's a secret. I also coloured Tilda the same colouring so that it looks like she has been looking for a bug, then on the bookmark she has her pet ladybird.
The DP is from Graphic 45, the browncard stock is from my stash. The tickets are from Kaiser, "Up, Up and Away". The flowers are from my stash and I curled some wire for detail. The leaves are actually the wings of a different coloured butterfly. Once again I didnt write down the Copics sorry but they are all from the E family. I added Glossy accents to Tildas magnifying glass and stickles.

Here's the inside
and now for a close up of either side

Until next time
