Lucky me!

Lucky me, I've got you!! My readers! Thanks for visiting! I'm afraid my card for today isn't my best, but it fits the season so I wanted to show it to you.
I got this Cosmo Cricket paper over the weekend. Then I colored Tilda to match it. So far, so good. When it came to layout, I was stuck! I figured the sentiment piece out this morning and thought I was home free! The I say the bare, lower right corner! Aaaack! I punched a swirl to fill it, but think I should use a flower, maybe? Anyway, I mad a "gem" with a punched circle and stickles. Hopefully, the eye travels from Tilda (love her!) to the sentiment, button and ribbon and can ignore the corner!
Here's another card with the same Tilda that I had never posted. Seems like a good day to do so. she is even colored with a green dress.
I colored Tilda's skin with a more Irish look (on the St Pat's card) E000, E01 and just a touch of E02. cheeks are still R20
Hair (the part of the card I like!) is E97, E17, E18, E39 and a touch of E47 I don't think you'd need all these, but I always start light and gradually add darker colors until I get what I want.
Greens are YG11, G14, G07 and G28.
I think this Tilda is very adaptable to the colors you want to use!
have a lucky (blessed!) day!
