Sittin' n' Thinkin'

Last week I was sittin' n' thinkin' which of my newest Tilda's and accessories I wanted to use for the Friday Sketch Challenge. So I made my decision and started planning my card. I've worked hard all week taking every piece of time I could fit in to work on her. I checked on the sketch blog Thursday, yesterday, and found that the challenge was closed already! Achhhhhhh! I didn't get my card finished until just this morning! It has taken me all week to make one card. So much is keeping me busy these days and their names are Josslyn and Brielle! LOL Okay, at least I got something made.

Here is the front of my card...

I made lots of changes along the way. I decided to make two of her and layer them for more dimension. I made three layers of the little pink flowers on each side of the Bible, I changed the color of her shoes, I changed the dp, I decided to use glitter on the flowers and add leaves and glitter them too. All of these changes to my original plan took up more time than I realized. Decisions, decisions!

Here is a close-up of Tilda...

A closer view of the flowers...

A side view so you can see the dimension...

Here are the Copics I used to color my image with...

So it didn't make it in time for the challenge, but it's done and waiting for a good home...
