Celebrating with my new Tilda + Challenges

Hello my Dears,  I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far, I am thoroughly enjoying my time off and really enjoying my crafting.  I wanted to show you one of my new Tilda's that I received as a Christmas gift (one of many) from my sweet Daughter Janie.  

She is Tilda holding her little celebration banner, isn't she just adorable.  I know she is from the Christmas release but I thought the banner she was holding could be used for so many celebrations.  I've used her for a Birthday this time, coloured her with ProMarkers and slightly distressed the edges of the image with TH tea dye distress inks. My papers are old (last years Basic Grey) Flowers and butterfly are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and they have been glittered around the edges with Stickles frosted lace.  Another new stamp is my circular sentiment from Whimsy Stamps (Raindrop Designs) Birthday letter seals, another gift from my Daughter from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.   She is so good to me, I also got a lovely gift certificate for Bunny Zoe's which I have yet to spend.  How lucky am I.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Wild Orchid Craft Challenge:  I followed the lovely Sketch designed by Bev.

Charisma Cardz Challenge:  Are celebrating their 2nd Blogaversary and the theme is all about Celebration and if you add the number 2 somewhere on your creation you will get another entry.
