Totally Tilda DT Call

Hi everyone!  It has been awhile since I posted and the summer is slipping away fast.  Lots of summer activities going on but I "made" some time to make this little creation for the Totally Tilda design team call and I am going to be giving this one to a very special friend who has a birthday later in August.

I am also entering this one in the following challenges:

Mad for Markers - Anything Goes
Magnolia-licious - Photo Inspiration
Midweek Magnolia's - Use 2 dies/punches
Just Magnolia - Pearls and Swirls
NMWC (No Matter Which Challenges) - Anything Goes

The border idea is from the incredible Mandy who is the Head Designer at Totally Tilda.  She has a fabulous tutorial on how to make these border punched card fronts.  Check her out at

I used Copics in the following colors:

Dress and socks - R85, 83, 81
Pinafore and lace - BG05, 02, 000
Shoes - C1, 0, 00
Skin - E50, 000, 00, 21 and 93 for the cheeks
Hair - E59, 99, 33; YR24, 21, 20

Here's one close up of the coloring for you.

I actually designed the interior to open to the left but then realized that it had to open from the bottom up and so it didn't turn out the way it was planned but I still like how it came out.  Here's one of the whole inside panel.

Close ups of the interior.

Toys that I used are:
Papers - Echo Park and Kaiser and Bazzill
Border Punch - Martha Stewart punch around the page
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Pearls - Kaiser
Dies - Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn

I love reading your comments and would love to know what you think of this one!
