Tilda is Sitting so Pretty

What a beautiful day we are having here in the West of Scotland. The sun is shining, there is a slight breeze and I've just finished my lunch out in the garden.   I've come indoors only because my hairdresser is about to descend on me and perform her magic on my locks. 

I finished this little card this morning and thought I would enter sweet Tilda into a few challenges. The full recipe for my card is below this post.  No point in dragging out the post with the where's and how's of how it was created.  There are lots of different elements used. The only thing I will point out is my first ever handmade hat pin which was created from a very old necklace. I'm quite proud of it, now that I know it's possible I'll be on the lookout for fancier beads etc in the future.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and that the sun shines for you where ever you are.

Challenges I would like to participate in are:
