Tilda With Maggie the Monkey

Morning everyone, I'm popping in today on Grace's seventh birthday with my card for our new challenge at Totally Tilda, for this challenge we want to see Tilda holding an animal, bird or butterfly. Being from Hartlepool there was only one Tilda I could use for this (if you don't know the connection, click HERE).

I have coloured Tilda with Maggie the Monkey with inktense pencils. This is actually William's card that he gave Grace today, so I had a bit of his input into how it was decorated, I had to convince him to let me add the one rose! The Sister tag is from the Family Sentiment Tags from Lili Of The Valley.

The papers are from Maja Design, from both the 6x6 Vintage Summer Basics pad and the 1933 12x12 sheet from the same collection. The edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and also some Walnut Stain ink too.

I have used the new Lovely View die from Little Darlings. The embellies William allowed me to use are all from The Ribbon Girl, I've used ivory rose organza, 5mm self adhesive pearls, stardust stickles, Emily lace and some Ivory Tulle that I have made a bow with.

Hope you can play along, for this challenge we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Better go and be mammy to the birthday girl.
