Bride Tilda - only not a bride

I talked to my eldest dd the other day and asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted a wedding fund. She isn't engaged but thinks it may be coming. So I decided that I would use one of the wedding collection Tilda's for her card. Maybe Tilda is waiting to be asked by Edwin on her birthday.


 Obviously I didn't color Tilda as a bride but who says she has to be a bride. She can just be a pretty girl all dressed up. My girls tend to like to dress up. She is all colored in copics. The earrings are done with Scribbles white mist. Emily likes pearls better than diamonds so I thought Tilda ought to have pearl earrings. Of course I had to put lots of stickles around the flowers. The butterfly is from the angel company and stamped on patterned paper and then colored a bit with copics and then stickles.  The paper is from sultry by basic grey.  The tags are punched and held together with a brad. In the opposite corner are pearl dew drops. 
Copics used.
Hair - E77, E08, YR31, E53
Skin - E11, E00, E50; Cheeks R20
Dress - Go2, G00, 0
Leaves - G07, G14
Flowers - RV 23, RV21, RV34; Center Y06
Wood - E53, E31, E57
Shadow W-3
Sky - BG01, B0
Hope you enjoy.
Oh did you notice I didn't color the ribbon around the bottom of the stems. I must go do that before I forget again. lol
This card is also made for the wedding Stamping Scrapping  Central Challenge here.
