Raining Tilda

For a change the sun is shining here in Western PA and not snowing. Spring may come someday although we still have several inches of snow on the ground. So in honor of the sun I made a rain card. lol. Anyway here she is:  

 

Tilda is colored with copics and has some stickles as highlights.Gotta have some glitter. The background is done with willow walnut ink spray. Tilda was stamped on that as well as stamped and cut out and popped up with foam tape. The scalloped papers were cut out using nestabilities. The pink edge on the outer rectangle was done with a pink marvy inkpad. The background dp is lemonade from basic grey. Around the frame are little flowers from You Got Flowers? with little pearls glued to the centers. A narrow pink heart ribbon is tied around the one layer of paper. 
Even though it is a rainy card I think it is very cheery.  Hope you enjoy her as well.

Awww, she looks like a little girl out enjoying a little spring rain shower! Great coloring and I love those little flowers.

Ooh, I love her. The promise of spring comes with the showers that encourage the flowers to push above the protecting earth. You coloring is very good and the flowers really compliment Tilda and the paper choices. thanks for sharing. Shirley
