High Heeled Tilda!

I'm back with a Tilda from the new Winter Kit.  It took me a little while to get used to her, but now she is growing on me. At first I thought, "oh no, grown up Tilda"?  Anyhow, here is the card I made with her.

My inspiration came from my friend Hanne.  I told her that I was going to try and copy her "style".  Go see what all she does with this Vintage look. She is amazing.  So how did I do Hanne?  Not nearly as gorgeous as her cards, but I just had to try it.  I love a challenge.
I colored her with distressed inks and used platinum  stickles allllllll over. Sparkly huh?  I got these amazing little pearls from my Colour Create Secret Santa (still don't  know who it is) and I just LOVE them. 

You can see them in the photo in the lower left. Also the fabby ribbon is from her.   I Crystal Lacquered the heart and distressed most of the edges with Vintage Photo.  The oval behind Tilda is a scan of an old encyclepedia.  The other square is K & Co. Ancestory line.
Well, hope you like my little change of pace.  It was fun, just wish I did a little better job of it.
I am entering this into the Just Magnolia challenge, which has an adorable sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Ya'll have a terrific, wintery, day!!

Hugs, Dena
