Fussy and Fancy Challenge #32

Good morning, peeps! Well after a week of no blog posts, it'll be a surprise to you that I'm here with another post two days on the trot but it's new challenge day over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge and this week there's a wonderful sketch from my talented teamie Mindy. Thanks, hun, it's a great sketch to work with and here it is:

and this is the card I made following it:

Tilda looks a little bemused after reading all those great tomes she's sitting on but no doubt she's now full of knowledge! I'm afraid I can't tell you what Copic colours I used on her because she's been coloured a good while but the Copics were helped along by the addition of Prismas. The DP is from the Prima 'Fairy Flora' pad again (love those papers!), the ribbon and lace were from my stash and I've also used another of those wonderful circular sentiments from Lili of the Valley. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I must stop buying those things because the drawers they live in are nearly at capacity! No surprise there then! It's nearly time for the Harrogate show too and I can hear my wallet screaming in agony from here!
I'm entering this in the Paper Pretties Challenge, which is to use ribbon on your project and The Crafty Pad Challenge, which is also to use ribbon.
Well I'm working on a workshop project today and then working towards samples for the post-Easter workshop programme but, whatever you've got planned, I hope it's a great day for you - don't forget to join us in the challenge, it really is a great sketch to follow!
