Midweek Magnolia

As you know, I've been MIA for a while now but I'm trying to get more done with the limited spare time I have.  I saw a friend's entry for Midweek Magnolia and it inspired me to have a go.  I am, it appears, rather rusty! LOL!  Never mind, I'll get better with a bit of practice!

Here's my card.


I used my own Eiglas  'Roseheart' papers and coloured my Tilda with a mix of Copics and Lyra pencils.
I know it's an unusual colour choice for a rather girly Tilda, but I wanted to do something a little different. With a very girly little granddaughter, I'm at risk of drowning in pastel pink....!

I may actually try this sketch again with another colour pallette - I have a rather nice message I just found at the bottom of a box and I'd quite like to use it for my little Ada's birthday in two weeks, but for now, this will suffice for the challenge over at Midweek Magnolia, I think you're allowed two but I'll need to check that.

See you soon!
Hugs
