My supposed to be Tilda...

Have you ever had one of those cards that's intended to be for this or that and it doesn't exactly work out? Well, this, is one of those cards. Firstly, I wanted to enter the Totally Tilda challenge of Chocolate and it started out ok, but ended up a little more carmel...hope it's still acceptable. Second, I was going for vintage, but I'm not sure I got there, lol. What do you think? I was hoping to use the Papertake Weekly sketch, but I def didn't get that, though, I tried and tried. Lastly, MDUC is have a Christmas challenge...I'm pretty sure this will qualify

I made Tilda's background on my computer with the help of some frames by Rhonda Fahrer. I colored her with copics(pic of those below), I propped her up on the frame pinned on foot down and left one forward so it's as if she's swining her legs.

Here's what it looks like when opened
sorry it's so blurry.

The saying...I came up with.

Well, there you have it...I think I'm happy with it. Well, all except for those colors never seem to blend well for me...don't know what the deal is with that. The background paper is also one I made with the help of another Rhonda Fahrer layer...think I'm really starting to like those things. The carmel cardstock is DCWV. The punch I used is EK Success. Lace is from my stash and the flowers are Wild Orchid. K, so, now what do you think...does it work or did I totally bomb this one? Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
Totally Tilda: Chocolate
MDUC: Christmas in July
