My Autumn Tilda........Apples & Cherries collection

Good afternoon all you lovely crafters I actually made this card last night but unfortunately I decided to do some crafting in the living room inside of my hobbit..... BIG MISTAKE!!! I brought the new dvd yesterday 'Streetdance 3D' I absolutely luuurrrvvveee dancing....more than crafting & cars & that says something!! Anyway we decided to put the dvd on so I could watch it whilst crafting just in 2D & not 3D mind....think that may be bit hard to do lol. Well I had half my card done, my image done there was about 15 minutes work left......WRONG once the dvd went on it turned into 2 HOURS work left.....its not a good idea to craft & watch a DVD about your biggest passion.......& believe me its a huge passion of mine lol!!
Well onto my card I've noticed a few challenges around blogland setting 'Autumn' as their challenge & my goodies turned up today so naturally after I came back from the hospital I just had to play.
Here is my 'Autumn' themed card.....
Meet 'Tilda in the wind/rain' from the new 'Apples & Cherries' collection. I couldn't resist these new 1s I would of got them all if they were not sold out lol. The paper I've used is Basic Grey 'Porcelain' which I've nearly completely ran out of :-( I've also added some Tulle from my stash onto the umbrella & some Glossy Accents to make it look wet lol.

Tilda has been coloured with Promarkers which you can get from Crafty Emma's Store. I've also used 1 of the Magnolia Doo Hickey Doily Flower dies which I also brought with  my new stamps from Bunny Zoes Crafts I inked the edges with 'Rusty Hinge' distress ink & added a flower which I got from Wild Orchid.
The card I have Tilda on was inked again with Rusty Hinge & then I used my new MS punch around the corner but only punched out the corners & not the sides.

Close-up of the flower I love these Magnolia dies the 1 here is the small 1. The leaves were punched out using my woodware punch & then inked with 'Forest Moss' distress ink. The flower was also inked just a tad with 'Vintage Photo'.

Last pic to show dimension. The flags were cut out using my WOJ Pennants die through the cuttlebug & then it was inked with 'Rusty Hinge', 'Forest Moss' distress inks & then a little 'Vintage Photo' on the edges.
I think thats it for now I've had a nice shopping trip this morn & brought my daughter some new clothes & coats I'm away now to pick up my son from school he finishes at 2.30 on a Wednesday which narurally he loves. Will be back later with something new, I've got a full night to craft while boys & their dad go fishing.
Thankyou for stopping by & leaving your wonderful comments you are all fabulous.
Bye-D-Bye for now peeps
Hugs Vicky xxx
