Princess Tilda

Hi again and another post from me with a card I sent to a very special birthday girl who I now know has received it :) so I can show it here. I've used the gorgeous Princess Tilda, I love how she's holding her skirt up. She's coloured with distress inks, cut out with a nestabilities deckle edge rectangle die and I've added Stardust stickles because princesses should be sparkly :D. The mat layers were cut on the Cricut from white card and the bottom mat has been sponged with pink distress ink (spun sugar and victorian velvet) as have all the other edges and I also glimmer misted the pink layer with pearl mist. The mats are svg cut  files, I had a question about another of these which I used on a previous card and tried to answer but couldn't get onto the lady's blog. I've decorated with little cream roses, some sparkly tulle that I got from the lovely Tab and a woodware sentiment on a labels die cut. Enjoy your day and thank you as always for your comments, I appreciate every one.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Lets go to the movies (I think Tilda looks like she's off to a premier :D )
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Stampin for the weekend - Ribbons and bows
ABC challenge - Sparkle (goes without saying :D)

Hey Chris!
This is probably the most beautiful princess card I have seen.
Wish I were a princess;))
Incredible painting, and beautiful colors.
You have mixed your colors so beautifully.
And I can almost believe that Tilda is alive.
Very inspired you invite us.
And it's like a story book to look up to you, Chris.
Wish you a wonderful day.
Hugs Camilla

Chris, I haven't been here in sooo long. Summer has been too busy to blog hop. So it is a super treat to come here and see what you have been up to. I am always blown away by your level of talent. This card is just jaw dropping spectacular. When I grow up, I want to colour like you! xo Hope your summer has been a good one!
