Valentine Dress Tilda (with sparkle!)

Hi friends! I decided to post this card in the evening. I have usually posted live in the morning because I had time. Now I just don't! Until I get the birds fed and the litter box cleaned and get myself ready for school I have been running late. I hate being late! There is so much to do at school, too!
Anyway, I made this card over the weekend. Do you like it? I used Basic Grey paper from the Bittersweet collection AND from another collection from the past. they look so good together! The hearts are cut from my Nestabilities. The tag, which is from the (Magnolia) New Year;s collection (and was in the winter club kit) is stamped with SU set with a million little words. I guess the rest is pretty self-explanatory to all you stampers out there.
This close up of Tilda shows her beautiful dress. It is colored with the Copic markers listed below and then painted with a couple of coats of Shimmerz in Pink Poinsettia. You really have to shake or stir the tiny jar because all these little silver flecks settle to the bottom. It's really shimmery!
Here are my copic colors,
face E00, E02 and R20 for cheeks
Hair E31, E35, E37
Dress R81, R83 and r85
Thanks for stopping by!
