Tilda at last!

I've been after a decent occasion to make use of some of the yummy Tilda images the incredibley talented Mandy sent me recently (Thankyou, Mandy!) so I'm really pleased that it's my good friend, Yvonne's birthday soon. I just love this image - she's so pretty! I coloured her with my promarkers and added a little bit of glitter to her flowers to make them sparkle (although it doesn't really show up on my photos at all).
I've used a some pretty glittery papers from Henbury Lane and made the flowers by cutting out scalloped circles with my nesties, scrunching them up and securing them with brads. I've added a little bit of sparkle to the edges - hope you can tell. I used an X cut border punch and then added some yellow ribbon from a present I got a couple of years ago and some pretty blue ribbon my Mom bought me for my birthday (Thanks, Mom!). The gems on stalks were rescued from a gift box - very pretty.
I've thoroughly enjoyed making this one! I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - Anything goes
Totally Tilda - Glitter and Sparkle
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sparkle and Shine
Passion for Promarkers - Recycled (yellow ribbon & gems on stalks)
Have a fab day!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
