Tilly Twinkle and Bunnikins

Hi Hi,

Now this week over at the Besties Challenge blog, Sherri has a featured Bestie of the week.  Her name is Tilly Twinkle and Bunnikins.  Isn't she just adorable!!!

I apologise for the dark picture.
I wanted to make a valentines card that is not so lovey dovey - without using all the traditional love colours.  Something that he wont be too embarrassed to display on his desk (see, no pink and no frills).   And this is what I ended up with.
Now the costume Tilly is wearing is just the cutest with the full skirt and mismatched leggings. 

 I really wanted to showcase the full skirt so I printed off a heap of the skirts, cut out the petals I liked and layered them one by one.  Now the skirt looks.....well....fuller.  Didn't want all the cute ribbons getting lost amongst everything so I chose a darker colour for them. 
I think I've put together quite a cute outfit....hehe (well, Sherri did anyway).  I would love to own this outfit and go to a dress up party in this.
Oh, and I've added some flower rhinestones to the skirt and hair for some bling.  Got to have some bling.

Since there is alot going on with the image I've kept the embellishments small and the DP plain-ish .  Just some little roses I made from sheer ribbon and a heart I cut out.  I wanted this cute image and her full skirt to be the center of attention.
The sentiment says " Smile somebunny loves you" which was a freebie from Digital Doodling.

That is the card for today.  I hope you like it as much as I do.
Thanks for visiting me.
