Tilda with Lamb (and being brave with Frantage)

The theme today at As You Like It Challenge is to choose your favourite from either Spots or Stripes.

Well I'm definitely not a stripes person, so for me it had to be spots.  To be honest I'm not usually over keen on large polka dots, but I do like these sweet small spotty papers.  Yup, you've guessed it, they're from my Silent Night paper pad.  That'll be 3 times in 4 days that I've used this pad  :0)

I've not used a Tilda image for a while. Actually thinking about it now, I can't even remember the last time I used a Tilda.  This is one I've not inked up yet, so I thought I'd use this challenge as an excuse to give her an outing.

I've also been brave and opened my pot of Frantage for the first time.  I think I bought it back in the early summer, but have not yet had the courage to use it.  I actually wasn't sure how much to use, and now think I could have put a spot more on, but for a first attempt it's not too bad, and next time I won't be so scared to throw a bit more on.

I've also used a lilac colour accent on my card after seeing the fab combo with the same paper pad on Lisa's card last week.  Funnily enough, my layout also looks a bit like her card, but I was actually following a sketch on The Sketchy Challenge, so that's just a bit of a coincidence.

BEAUTIFUL, I confess I am not a great Tilda fan but you have gone some way to changing my mind!! Just how many Silent Night pads have you been through!? I too have an unopened pot of frantage and don't know what the heck to do with it!!!

As it’s something I really don’t like doing for a whole comment will admit to this being a copy and paste one because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.

And super Frantage.
