IC169 Room Service

Good morning! I've been at this card for while and it's almost noon here! I think I should have quit on it sooner as the flowers are sort of overkill! It seems I am incapable of just using one flower or of using flowers without Martha Stewart leaves! My focus was intended to be this beautiful Tilda and my new found love, stickpins. So I should have stuck to a smaller embellishment in the upper right. Anyway, this Tilda is from the Love Collection, but I think she looks like she is in her Easter outfit. Remember getting a new Easter dress and hat for church? We always did. I only wish I looked this good in a hat! Never could wear them! My Tilda came from Magnolia-licious!
She is available there right now on EZ mount ready to stick on an acrylic block. I just love her!
Here is my close up. And for the first time, I've taken a picture of my markers. The Ciao that you can't see are E00, E02, RV000, and R85. I forgot to photo the browns which are E33, E35 and E37 with a darker brown then used for touches.

Upon posting this I'm going to go in and edit my Lilac Tilda post with the copics used. It was the post on Thursday, Feb. 26, in case you are interested!
Thanks for taking a look. I think I'll do another card with this girl and ditch the flowers! I think she needs a little shimmerz on her hat ribbon, too! Wow, can I spend a long time on a card!
Have a great Saturday! Cheryl
(Thanks for all the lovely comments here and at The Greeting Farm yesterday!)

Love this and the flowers are a perfect touch for this springy card! Gotta have flowers in spring, right? I have her (and others) on order. I'm hoping they get here soon!

love her Cheryl! I am still trying to use flowers myself! lol
Curious, did you use the R02 for her cheeks then?

Are you kidding?? I love the flowers!! I do the same thing....always flowers of some sort, & of course I do love my Martha leaf punches, lol. Well if you're unhappy with her, you go do another & send this one to me!! I absolutely love it!
