Wonderful Wednesday

I've had a lovely day off from work today and although I didn't go out to do any crafty shopping, I got plenty done on the Internet, lol.  I bought some of the stunning digi sets from Barely Mine Designs (instant craft shopping gratification, lol) and after I've finished this post I'm going to print some off so that I can start creating with them . . . the best thing is they will never run out!!

This is Tilda with Tag, I've stamped her onto a coated card which I was assured would not let my Copic markers bleed and I must say I'm very impressed . . . I only paid £1 for 10 sheets too, so needless to say that's back on my shopping list.

She's coloured with Copics (as always):

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20
Hair: W1; E71 and E77
Dress: Y15; Y38; BG10; BG34 and YR07
Tag: E50; E51; E53; E35 and E33
Socks: C1
Shadowline: W3

The paper is from Kaisercraft "Peachy Keen" paper pad.

The copper and brown cardstock is from my stash but I think that it is by Kanban.

The paper lace is from Mrs. Grossman's "Embroidery and Medallion Paper Whispers" collections.

The flowers are mainly from Wild Orchid Crafts except the tiny yellow daisy like flowers.

The foliage was punched out of the brown cardstock using a Nellie Snellen punch.

The card is finished with flat back faux pearls and a sentiment from the DoCrafts "Daisy & Dandelion" collection "Message Tags".

I'm entering this card into 4 challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge # 41 - Fall is in the Air
Creative Stamp Friends Challenge #9 - Orange and Brown; and
Sketch and Stash Sketch Challenge #46
ABC Challenge - F is for Flowers
I've got another easel card for you tomorrow, this time a Christmas one, until then,

Thanks for reading,
