Tilda's furry four legged friend!

Good evening crafters and hope all is well in blog land today. My card for today features a new Tilda stamp with a cute little cat. I have used the sketch at Roses on Paper which is shown below.

The background paper is a Funky Fairy paper and the other papers are from the Smirk paper packs - Naughty but Nice and Love & Friendship. The buttons were from my stash and then topped with some smaller buttons from Papermania. I bought the lace at a local haberdashery store. The sentiment was from a set of stamps I won at The Little Paper Shop - I Heart.

I coloured Tilda in with my watercolour crayons and sat her in a scalloped circle, then mounted her on a nestability scalloped circle. Everything has been distressed and then inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Peeled Paint.

I am also entering this card in  the following challenges :-

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Buttons or Bows,

Just Magnolia - hearts and flowers,

Paperplay Challenges - Pink, Green and White,
