Tilda dreams about Paris

Hello Maggie Fans,

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I started my day at our favorite place with an raspberry/peach scone and a lovely Americano! It so peaceful and quiet there; a great way to start the day.

Today I am showcasing Circus Tilda. She is so dainty and chic. I colored her with Copics, added some polka dots to her ribbon and the part of her dress. She needed some really beautiful shoes so I used this coppery color glitter and on the trim of her dress I used a pale yellow.  I love Frantage but I have to tell you it was a challenge to add it one it was cut. And then try not to burn yourself. LOL! So without further ado, here she is.

 A closer view:

One last peek:

Here is what I used to create my card:
Magnolia Doohickey Dies - Vintage tag
Magnolia Stamps - Circus Tilda, Eiffel Tower, Suitecase
Lace, Flowers, Trim
Graphic 45 paper - French Country
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
Frantage - Shabby Blue


I am entering my card in the following challenges:
