Sweet as Neopolitan Ice Cream!!

Hello All...

This is my latest creation, and I know it's a Tilda card...
I promise you that I do have other stamps in my stash and over the next weeks I will be using them, honest..
I can't help it with the beautiful Tilda, there is just something about her, or as my mum would say, Something NOT about her, "she hasn't got a nose or mouth"...Oh mum don't you know anything, she's an Angel, and they don't have mouths because Angels speak with their hearts!....(don't know about the nose though)....

Down to the business of the card..
I made this card as part of two challenges, it is the first time I have made a card in this way before, and although I found the end result pleasing, It was a bit hard to follow two themes at once.
One challenge was to follow the template and the other was to follow the colour combination.

You can find these challenges here:

I started with a cream background card and then chose all my Neopolitan colours to go on it. I had a free pad of My Mind's Eye papers which came inside a craft magazine (not sure which one, sorry), and they are called Pretty Spring Papers, so I chose the paper for the chair and the matting behind. The brown and cream papers are from DCWV Latte stack which I am finding very useful.This brown paper even has a lovely very subtle cream flower on it, I was not sure if the camera would pick it up, but I noticed it had, good.
The sweet Tilda was coloured with copics, and I have sat her on the Magnolia chair.
The flowers and leaves are cut with Nellie puches and the border edge with a MS punch. I finished off with pearls, tiny roses, ribbon from my stash and a sentiment stamp saying "There is no one like you! by Hero Arts..
Hope it fits the bill for both challenges, and hope you like the delicious colours!!

Oh Debbie we need to steo OMP up a gear especially if David Beckham has one. Right, this is the plan....firstly no more laundry, ironing or cooking. They know wht they need to do if they want that service again. Obviously hoovering and toilet cleaning is out. As a last resort you yourself must stop washing. If this fails then we will have to re think. I will also take this approach to see if I can get my horse. Won't hold my breath though!
