MMSC #46

Yoo hoo! I am almost late, but I am here! This cute little Tilda named "sweet Tilda" was a birthday gift from a dear friend of mine. As usual, I did the card backwards. I colored first and then had to run to the store to find paper to match. Once and awhile I do it the right way and pick my paper first and then color. Thankfully it all worked out in the end. The sketch is from Midnight Madness and was a bit tricky with all of the layers. I used the design element of the cherry blossoms of one of the DP and cut it out and used it as the strip up the side and along the bottom. The bottom layer of the 3 stacked pieces is the backside of the largest dps. It was a nice moment when I realized the paper had a backside. It made life just that much easier. The flower was from a dork sister.
