My Goal in Life

I love this Tilda...she is so shy but thoughtful looking. I chose her to be my thinking Tilda. I am thinking of graduation cards but this is just a thinking of you card.
I painted with Twinkling H2Os using a waterbrush. The colors I used are:
dress and socks: Guatemalan Green and Mystic Blue
blouse: Pink grapefruit
Wings: Pewter
Hair: Nutmeg
This is not my usual style leaving it so faded but I rather like it. I also have never used a hat pin on a card before. This is made from the SU Pretties Kit as is the flower and the half pearls. The ribbon is Sheer Creations from Michaels.
The papers are from My Mind's Eye and DCWV Asian Slab. The papers have created a lovely soft BG for the image and the sentiment. This is the perfect sentiment from our home of 5 dogs. Love the sentiment which is from Cloud 9.
I used the corner punch from SU to create a little uniqueness and I really like the effect. We are expecting perfect weather this weekend....22 C tomorrow and 26C on Sunday. I plan on spending oodles of time outside so you probably will not hear from me till Monday. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your life.
