Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - A Sketch with a twist!

Hi there everyone... how is Monday treating your so far? Hmm... well, it was raining here today, but of course that meant that it wasn't quite so cold! See, always a silver lining to any cloud :)

My card today is for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - this fortnight the challenge is a Sketch with a theme - Birthday! Wild Orchid Crafts are one year old! Woohoo!

I inked up a favourite Tilda - Ribbon Hair Tilda for my card but I don't have many sentiements and I wanted something more than just "Happy Birthday" ... so I made my own and printed it out onto some patterned paper, then put it in a shaker using some of Wild Orchid Crafts new German Glass Glitter in Silver.  The pretty lace behind Tilda is a paper doily that I've pleated.

Little Tilda is perched up on the postage shape chippie shaker which is painted in Distress Crackle paint, Tattered Rose. The card is embellished with Silver Corners, both large and small, new WOC Silk Ribbon (OMG this stuff is amazing) and loads of roses - 25mm Wild Rose, 20 mm open rose, 10 mm open rose and some of the new Tulips. Too cute!  Oh - there is also some pretty cotton lace hiding in there too :)

The papers are Girls Paperie. Love them too.

I would love to enter my card into some challenges:
