Hi to everyone on this lovely wet Sunday morning! (Well, it's wet up North anyway - hope it's better where you are)! I am now going to make my first attempt at multi-tasking in the "more-than-one-challenge" category. Beautiful Tilda and her little birdie are heading off first of all to the which fitted in nicely with her new Coral dress, Pea Green shoes and Orangey-red hair. As Tilda had taken such a lot of time to get dressed up, she decided to pop in and see her little pals at the Just Magnolia Challenge, where she has to be centre of attention on a lovely sketch layout , . When she arrives, she intends to give the little birdie in its glittery cage, to Somebirdy Special. (Just sat here wondering - is it time I grew up)??
Thanks so much for popping in to see Tilda and Me - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
Papers used are MME Bloom and Grow. Bazzill cardstock, Copic pens, Glamour Dust on the cage which doesn't show up too well in the photo, MS Doily Lace punch.

Tilda is looking grand Sylvia. Those papers and the red border really complement each other.It a super layout as well, I've looked at the challenge post and for some reason on your card (and I didn't notice it on any of the others) because of either the pattern of the paper or paper combined with the red border, Tilda appears to be standing in a corner, giving the card a remarkable 3D effect. Can you see it too? The two angled rectangles making a corner, like a corner of a room, that she standing in?
Maybe it's just my eyes as I can't read red writing on blue etc (even though I'm not at all colour blind).
You said
"Just sat here wondering - is it time I grew up??"
No, absolutely not, if you grow up then the world will loose a lot of it's wonder and that will never do.
Besides which every piece of art has a story and the telling of that story gives the piece more interest and you go from admiring it to loving it (IMO).
I am desperate to whip out my fine point black marker and give her a nose and a smiling mouth - don't you get that urge too?

Oh Sylvia! I've just realised that without her mouth she can't eat chocolate, I bet she is frantic to give the birdy to whomever comes along with felt tips and Galaxy in their pocket! I know I would be. :-)

Stunning card, Sylvia!!! And, may I say, about time I saw a red-headed Tilda! She is beautifully coloured, as always and I love your layout, everything in fact - right down to Polly's glittery cage. Don't ever try to grow up - it's really not worth the effort!x :D
