Looking Elegant ~ Tilda

I found this card fun to design.
Tilda looks so elegant.
I tried a weaving background using card stock, background paper and ecru shaded ribbon.
It was a challenge to get all lined up but
was fun to do.

I added some pearl trim and some pearl beads.
A fun stick pin and flowers from WOC.

Using an oval shaped Spellbinder plain and scalloped. I used my Copic air brush to add
color to the scalloped one to have the color
I needed to match the theme.
Copic pen colors used are Skin E01 E11 &R81. Hair E33 E37 & E41.  Dress & Shoes R81 R83 & R37 with G94.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
The ABC Challenge ~ T For Two
Make It Monday ~ MIM # 100
Tammy's Stampin Corner ~ Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss ~ Pearls

Hope you will like my touch of elegance.

I am having a good day and feeling fine. I am beginning to get out my fall stamp collections for both Tilda and other stamps I have, mainly for SU.

Have a super great day and I so appreciate your visits.
Hugs to all.
