Underneath the Tree

Morning everyone!  Did you all enjoy the warm weather yesterday?  A brief taster of things to come hopefully! I finally got my aunt's card done which is a relief as her birthday and party are tomorrow so it was cutting it a bit fine!  My son, DIL and grandson will be coming up tonight for the weekend yippee so I get to have a bit of time with my lovely Harrisonxx

Today's card is the lovely Tilda back again:


I have coloured her with Copics and added a touch of Spica pen to her sleeve edges which isn't really picked up in this picture.  The papers are First Edition and the lace is from Wild Orchid.  I have used my new Memory Box die for the tree I had wanted this for a while I think its a really pretty one.  The mat and border are Spellbinders and pearls are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Little Miss Muffett - Fancy or Lacy
Moving Along with the Times - Lots of Layers
Sarah Hurley - Die Cuts
For Your Inspiration - Photo Inspiration
Whimsy Stamps - Monochromatic
Sassy Cheryl's - No Embossing
Sew Many Cards - 2 DPs and 4 or more Gems
Victorine Stamps - Lace
Let's Ink it Up - Ribbons and/or Lace
Totally Gorjuss - Lace

Well I must dash I am meeting a friend for coffee in town at 0930 then back to get ready for The Chosen One's arrival lol!! Thanks for looking and take care xx
