LADYBUG TILDA

Hi! I have seen so many wonderful cards with this adorable Tilda that I had to color up one myself! I used last week's Friday Sketchers challenge sketch, but I was too late when I went to post last night! Oh well, it's a great sketch! This week's is pretty interesting, too, so maybe I'll get a card done sooner! The stamp is #374 LADYBUG TILDA. I'm so sorry that she is out of stock right not. I think I got her after Valentine's day last year, but am so happy to have her this year! Keep an eye on the Magnolia-lcious store! Diana will be uploading pics of the new Butterfly collection for preorder very soon! I can't wait! The rich red designer paper is also from Magnolia-licious from the Merry Little Christmas pack. It's a great match for the Su Cherry Cobbler (my fav red!) paper
I used copic to color my image, of course! The reds are R22, R24, R27 and R29. The "black" is all fromthe Cool Grey family. I always start with my light color first so this one started with C1 and I kept adding color and reblending with C1 until I was happy with the shade. The "tummy is E30.
I wanted to put some flowers where the buttons are, but my selection of flowers is not what I wish is was and I had no time to make something. I DO have lots of buttons and I love them so I am happy with the end result. The die is Spellbinders Labels 5.
Thanks so much for coming by today! Have a great Friday! Yippee, the weekend is here!

Cheryl, she is fabulous! I love how you married the spotted ribbon with the corner pieces and with the spots on her coat, beautiful flow and very effective. Her tummy almost looks furry. I like the buttons, you always see flowers so the buttons are refreshing, good choice.
