"Shy Tilda" Birthday Card

Well I can honestly say I never thought for one moment that I would be making any cards at all this week. I dont know whats come over me but I cant stop colouring!! So late last night when everyone was tucked up I took some time out and this is what I come up with. I'm pretty much a Tilda addict at the moment. You wont see many cards from me where the stamp has been coloured with dark tones. I'm pretty scared when it comes to shading and red is a colour I never usually use. But I love my new "Shy Tilda" and the warm colours on this card make this a real treat for me. I've coloured her with Copics and Polychromo Pencils. Got the set of 120 and hardly used them, and I've remembered to list the colours used. The Postcard Stamp is LOTV, papers are Basic Grey - Kissing Booth and made my own tag.
 I did make this card based on this weeks Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenges and as usual it will fit so many more so here they are;

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Basic Grey Paper Brands
Wags n Whiskers - Say It With Flowers
Just Magnolia - Springtime
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Spring Blossoms
Kaboodle Doodle - Circles & Squares
Diva's By Design - Stamp Something
My Mums Craft Shop - Stamp It!
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge - Add a Sentiment

Well thats it from me for the time being. Cases to pack, house to clean and a bit of blog hopping.
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter Break.
We'll be returning on the 9th and as I'll have no wifi, will be straight to my computer
