Thankful Tilda

For my DT post at the Rubber Buggy I've created a card for your thanksgiving holiday with Magnolia stamp Christmas Tilda with cat. I'm so very fond of this stamp, I don't want to limit myself for Christmas to use it. I carefully inked the stamp with memento ink, tuxedo black, but for the letters on the sign. I think it worked out pretty well:)

Instead I used stickers to put together "time to be" and used one of Teresa Collins' flash card from Vintage finds collection. The designer paper is also from the same collection.
From the paper I also cut the bingo bricks as embellishment.

Other embellishments are flowers and leaves from I am roses.
A R40-15 have been coloured with LSG a bit o'bubbly and edges with dark chocolate truffle
A R21-15 have been coloured with LSG clam bake beige
The ZQL0-74 and ZQL4-700 are edged with distress ink vintage photo

Can you see how they sparkle?

I tied a bow of organza ribbon and topped it of with Prima say it in pearls flower and some bling on the side.

I used a mix of promarkers and copic alcohol pens:
Skin: E50, 51, blush
Hair: E31, E25, E55
Dress: Buttercup, YR61, saffron
Wood: E33, E13
Shoes: E11, E13
Cat: E50, saffron, oatmeal

Designer paper used: Teresa Collins' Vintage finds
Flowers: I am roses
Ribbon and lace: For my stash
