Vintage Valentine!

Or I could call this "Rox to the Rescue!" I colored this Tilda with braid over the weekend, chose my papers and just couldn't get it to all work together. Today's sketch (SC212) gave me a plan and I think it worked. I love this Tilda with braid. I got mine from Magnolia-licious. I think she was from the holiday collection. I'm sorry I can't find her right now. If you're interested please email Diana at Magnolia.us@shaw.ca I know she will try to help. I think it's so great that when you color an image differently you can make it fit anything! I was going for a vintage look here. I just love the bg paper from Cosmo Cricket-it's from Wonderland (Christmas!). The brown dotted is the back of a gorgeous piece from Prima Marketing collection called Whisper.
Tilda is of course colored with my copics.
I used wonderful pink shades of R81, R83 and R85 for her clothes. I also put a few stickles on her wings. The sentiment is from SU!

I'm really pleased with this one Yes, ILM!) and hope you like it too!
I'm so happy to say that I heard from Sherri Thacker and she will be getting the Blog Candy soon! Thanks to my good friends offering good advice on how to reach my winner (and to those who offered to help by taking the candy off my hands!). Love you!

Have a great day!
Cheryl
