Spring Tilda is ...."The Bee's Knees"

Evening all !!! I've had a great crafty afternoon while watching a couple of movies and then a nice soak in the bath so I'm now nice and relaxed and I have a card to show you, I coloured this image a while ago with all intention of making a card for a previous challenge but I was to slow and missed the dead-line so I put the circle in my "Work in progress" box for another time
Well today is the day !! I saw that my blog buddy Pam used the very same Masked images today (in lovely traditional colours)and her easel card is to die for so after taking inspiration from Pam I got out my coloured image and whipped up a card , I hope you like it .
Thanks for the inspiration Pam x.
To make this card I coloured Sweet Tilda sitting on her jar with Copic Markers, she is stamped and layered on die cuts from my shop Die cut Dreams.
I die cut the bumble bee with a Quickutz die, from Stampin'up textured card the grey base card and the sentiment stamp is also from Stampin'up.
The flower and the gem is Petaloo box blends, I also added pink polka dot buttons and a bow
Oh yes and stitched the edges to give a little extra detail.
I have entered this one into quite a few challenges !!!! lol
