Lady Tilda and Her Castle

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and your week is off to a great start. I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time in the craft room this weekend which was nice and relaxing. I should have lots to share with you this week :)

For my card today, I decided to ink up this gorgeous castle scene from Magnolia Stamps as well as Lady Tilda. I preordered mine from Magnolialicious and I was so excited when they came last week. I first colored the castle with copics (grays: W2, W4, W6, W8; greens: G21, G24, G28). I added stickles to the roses in the rose bush and to the moon and stars. Next I colored Lady Tilda with copics (dress: R81, R83, R85, R89; hair: E33, E37, E39; skin: E00, E01, E11, RV21), cut her out, and added Stardust Stickles to her flower and head band. I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Regal Rose and Not Quite Navy). The design paper is also from SU. For some finishing touches, I added pearls, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and a double looped bow tied with my Bow Easy (the best $5 I ever spent) :) What do you think?
