Romantic Tilda

Seems like I have been so busy. Last weekend we had my dd's graduation party. Then this week as been so hot I haven't been motivated to do anything and the next couple of days will be even hotter. Should have done things while it was "cool". It has been so hot I haven't even wanted to stamp. That is hot. But I have to stamp a couple of cards today before my eldest dd comes for a visit tomorrow. Can't wait to see her. 
Isn't Tilda just the prettiest little thing with her parasol. I just had to get her. She is colored with prisma color pencils and OMS. The edging is done with a retired deco designs stamp set from the angel company with chalk ink. Then I did some stippling with yellow chalk ink to done down the white just a bit. The dp is two scoops by basic grey. I did some random stitching around the edges. The flower is colored with the chalk ink also. Of course I had to add some stickles around Tilda's dress, hat and parasol. All for a fresh vintage look. I did this card for the Just Magnolia stamp challenger vintage here
For the layout I did a take off of one Suzanne Dean did here.
Hope you enjoy this little sweetie.

Peggy this is so sweet, I simply love your stamped edging and the DP's all work so well together. Tilda is colored beautifully too. I have just bought this stamp too, but have yet to ink her up...I might have to do that this weekend. TFS
