Red & White Tilda With Buckle

I set out tonight to make ONE card to fit TWO challenges - Daring Cardmakers Red & White only card and Tilda & Co Challenge card with buckle and this is the result:



The floral paper is Pink Petticoat and the red paper used for Tilda's dress is by HOTP. I have used various Sakura pens to colour the stamped images and Irridescent Red Twinking H2O paint on the house windows and Tilda's wings. The flower is a mini Prima. I punched the border of the card with a Fiskars border empuncher which I very rarely use because it's a bit like weight training at the gym (only harder to do) and nearly always results in a sore hand and wrist!

What a lovely card! And I do love your border, although it seems painful to use it. Nevertheless it was worth it :)
