I hadn't planned to make a card this evening but this card came together in my head while I was in the shower!! I've used a great sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge. This is one of my new Tilda's and I've coloured her with distress inks and watercolours. I've been using some lovely watercolour paper to stamp on recently which is a dream to colour on it but its a nightmare to cut out as its so thick - I had sore fingers after cutting around this little lady!! The paper is a double sided sheet from Bo Bunny and I used my lovely Martha Stewart punch for the scalloped edges. The sentiment is a freebie with this months Card Making & Papercraft magazine; ribbon, charm, buttons, gems are from my stash.

I might write a little note to my husband on Tilda's tag - just not sure what yet!
