Happy Birthday with Secret Tilda!

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing this Secret Tilda Birthday card I created using the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces. I'm entering July's challenge along with the Simply Magnolia challenge: Birthday Card/Creation. Thank you Sharon for inviting me to join this challenge!

 This time I decided to go with a "vintagey" look. I colored my little Secret Tilda with Copic markers and inked the edges with Tim Holtz, vintage photo, distress ink. As you can see, I created the base of the card with plain craft cardstock and painted the edges with white crackle paint, love this technique! I used My Mind's Eye paper distressing all the layers for a rough look.

The fabulous flowers and the pearl swirls are from Recollections, the metal corner is from Tim Holtz collection and the paper ribbon from Basicgrey. For this card I used the following Copics: Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Hair: E37, E33, E31 and E50. Clothes: R22, R20 and R000. Present: Y26, Y23, Y21, W5, W3 and W1.

Thanks for visiting!
