The sweetness of pink...

This started out as a full sized card, but as I worked on it I decided to make a smaller card and add it to the full sized card. So it's a card front with a smaller card attached. I've used papers from my stash that were already cut so I don't know who makes them. I have seen so many beautiful cards using all of the images I used for my card, #3011 Tilda with Straw Hat, (sorry she's not available at this time) #560 Wheel Barrow (this is only available in the Mini version at this time and #218 Sweet Tilda, she is available at this time.

A friend of mine recently bought some fabulous Marianne Designs doily dies. On the front of my card is one of those doilies which she cut for me. I cut it in fourths and added two of those beneath a couple of my panels. I did the clouds with chalk.

Here is my card...

An angular view of my card...

Here is a closer view of Tilda and the Wheel Barrow...Tilda is cut out and mounted with pop dots over the Barrow...

I didn't use flowers on this card as I didn't want to detract from the beautiful Tulips in the Wheel Barrow.

Here is how I finished the inside of my card...

Here is a close up of my Sweet Tilda...I colored her on Cryogen White then cut her out with my Spellbinder's circle die. I think I got her a little crooked...

Okay, now for those who are interested in the Copics I used, here is the list...
