Tilda on a bike


Doesn't Tilda look like she is having fun? I made this card for Book Endz here. We read the book Where the River Ends by Patti Callahan Henry. In the opening scene the girl, Meriday is riding her new pink bike with her lime green party dress on - it did not make her mother happy. Later in the book there is an incident with fireworks so I gave Tilda a sparkler to hold instead of the heart lollipop. I seem to be into altering Tildas lately. 
Hope you enjoy my creation. Thanks for leaving comments. They really make my day.
