Tilda in the Red!

Good evening all! Well, after a very long day at work I'm sat at my laptop with a consolation slice of lemon cheesecake! Not very health conscious I know, but gosh it's good! I'm full of a stinky cold, sniffling & coughing - probably caught from some germ-ridden body on the London Tube lol! So the cheesecake is acting as medicine too - and as it's lemon surely it must count as one of my 'five-a-day'......?
Today's card is using a cute Tilda stamp called 'Ribbon Tilda' -

I've coloured her with promarkers and prisma pencils and just love that deep red! 

The backing papers are Nitwit 'Cottage Charm' which were a much welcomed freebie with a magazine. And I've added some of my favourite embellishments - ribbon & buttons! The seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the cotton ribbon has been in my stash so long that I'm afraid I've forgotten where it's from :(
I've matted & layered with coredinations card and thought the red & beige colours went quite well together. 
Well, enjoy the rest of your evening and I'll finish off my cheesecake and sniffle my way along (I keep trying to play the sympathy card at home but daughter's gone out and husband & son are more interested in keeping up with Spain v Portugal!).
Back soon, Kim x
