Secret Tilda

Hiya everyone!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas (those who celebrate it) and that everyone has something exciting (or at the least relaxing) planned for New Year's.

Today I'd like to share with you a card using Magnolia's Secret Tilda form the Merry Little Christmas Collection.  Although, as you can tell, she's not only a cutie but is also a very versatile image!  I can definitely see myself using this image for lots of birthday cards.  The image was cut out using my Cuttlebug and Mega Nestabilities Labels 8.

I've colored her using Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  There was a little bleed from her hair onto her headband :(  Didn't notice it until after I took the picture, but I'll definitely be covering that up with some pearls or something, lol. 
 
All the papers are from the October Afternoon Schoolhouse 8x8 Paper Pad.  I love all October Afternoon papers and this one is also a must.  Loooove the subtle tones on these papers and they coordinate so well with a lot of the distress ink colors.  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Ticket Sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
