Somebirdy Special!

Hi all!
Well, I didn't finish in time to post yesterday, but I made it today!
This 5x5 card features Tilda with Birdcage and I used the Friday Sketchers sketch to guide my layout! What a great sketch!!


Tilda's apron is paper pieced with the same Basic Grey paper that I used on the background pieces, from the Oh Baby Girl collection (Lilly and Sarah are the names)

She is colored with copic markers;
E000, E01 and E93
Y21, Y32, YR24, E25, YR15, YR31
BV31, V02, BV13, BV17 and greays C3, C5, C7 and C9 (shoes). I used SU's Lovely Lilac and Barely Banana for my solid cardstock.
As most of my Tilda's do, she has sparkle added with Stardust stickles and the flowers are by Prima.
The Tilda stamps and the sentiment inside are both available from Diana Crick at
TODAY is her birthday so please head on over and send her a birthday wish!

A close up of this adorable little girl!

One of my non fancy insides ready to be signed and sent!
Here, finally, is the link to the post in which Nichole Heady gives her directions for the crocheted flower that I have used on some of my cards (not this one though!)
ETA: the link works now! Thanks Sharon and Susan for letting me know! (It wasn't you, Susan, it was ME!)
It was the design team challenge that she gave in May on her blog.
I will chose a winner later today (And post it tomorrow) for the mystery candy as stated in Friday's Halloween blog hop post.
Hope your Monday is a blast!

Beautiful card. Love the background scenary created by the flower stamp. Tilda's paper piecing dress is nicely done to match the DP. Such a lovely card!

Cheryl, this is beautiful! Love her and your coloring is the best! Just an FYI, your link for the flower goes back to Magnolia-licious. I was able to find it on her site with a search for crocheted flowers. :) HUGS!

Beautiful card! I love those flowers and how they are placed in the sketch. You do a great job with the coloring, too.

I tried clicking on the link to the CROCHETED FLOWER, but I keep getting this:
What am I doing wrong?
