Sketch & Stash #22

Hi everyone, today it's time for my DT card for Sketch & Stash and Becky's fabulous sketch number 22.
As you can see, I couldn't stay away from little Tilda for long, so she's making another appearance today and looking very sweet in her lilac outfit.
I wonder if there's such a thing as dyslexia for layers? I always have difficulty with layers of different papers, my poor little brain can't seem to cope too well with them (especially if they happen to be set at an angle like the last sketch!) so please forgive the fact that I haven't made the most of Becky's sketches for the last couple of challenges.
Do you like my flower? (it actually looks better than this in real life, I managed to squash it a bit whilst scanning it lol!) I made it myself!!!!! Yes honestly, I followed THIS wonderful tutorial and was amazed at how fabulous the finished flowers looked. I'm a bit technically challenged, so I really didn't expect them to look anything like the original, so many thanks Michelle.

Card Details:
* Image - Magnolia 'Berry Tilda'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - K & Co and Joanna Sheen
* Sentiment tag - from birthday prezzie stash
* Flower - handmade from THIS tutorial
* Everything else from my stash

Thanks to all of you who join in the fun with us each time, and if you haven't made it before, why not give it a try this time? You have two whole weeks before the next challenge and if you need some inspiration, take a look at the other DT's fabulous creations.

Having just read this back I need to apologise for it being such a long posting, I seem to have rambled on for ages!
Thank you to all my visitors for your wonderful comments, you make my day!
