Tilda dropping Petals

What fun it is to create with Tilda. She is always dressed just so no matter what she is doing. I wish I looked half so good.  lol I made this card for a couple of challenges. The first one is for a sketch challenge on Friday's Sketch Challenge here. The next one is for the new blog challenge for 7 Kids College Fund Challenge here. This was to use pinks and polka dots. 

Tilda is colored in copics and her dress is supposed to be made of dotted swiss fabric.
Here is a close up so maybe you can see the dots on the dress.
Just barely you can see the dots.
The dp is from the new basic grey collection cappella. 
Copics used 
face: E00, E11, E50
checks: R20
hair: E08, YR31, Y00
dress: R00, W1
basket: Rv95, E04
flower petals: V17,V15, V000
flower center in hair: Y17, Y38
leaves in hair:YG06
shoe sole: E71
shadows: G94, G21, BG10, R00
Surprisingly I didn't use any glitter. There is some diamond glaze on Tilda's shoes.
The scalloped oval is a nestabilities. The oval around was cut out using - oh dear I just forgot what it is called. The brain is a terrible thing to loose. Then I punched holes in between the scallops. Hope you enjoy. I always enjoy your comments.
