Pink Pastel Tilda

I'm not always a huge fan of Magnolia images, but I really love some of the newest Sakura Tildas, and this cutie is one of my recent additions.  The card is to support the "pastels or brights" challenge at As You Like It Challenge.  I rarely use bright colours because I prefer softer pastels, mainly pinks, blues and purples, and this one uses some of my favourite Maja Design papers.  I've also used my new stitched ovals and stitched clouds and a beautiful dusky pink satin ribbon.  It's a bit lighter in real life but matches the papers perfectly.

She is a sweetie and looks amazing in Victorian Velvet, which is a perfect match for the Maja papers. It's just so coordinated missus! Beautiful colourwork on little Tilda, she's glowing. Hugs xx

I'm with you on the Tilda issue...some are utterly beautiful and some I really do not care for! This definitely falls into that first group and you have coloured her so beautifully :-)

Those Maja papers are so yummy too; they are the prettiest soft colours and the ribbon looks gorgeous with them.

Big hugs, Kat xx
