Sketch Saturday #23

It's DT week over at Sketch Saturday!
This weeks fabulous sketch is designed and hosted by Coco! (Merci beaucoup mon amie!)
Coco has also given us the option of using an autumnal theme too, so I just had to use my 'Windy Tilda' stamp. I stamped Tilda on plain card and used watercolour pencils to colour her in, then I stamped her dress and hat on 2 different patterned papers and paper pieced them onto the other image.
The card base is cut from Chatterbox Chateau Upholstery cardstock, which is gorgeous double sided cardstock. The patterned circles are cut from Papercellar's wedding collection.

I have since stamped a greeting on the bottom left corner so that I could send this card to a friend.
I think the layout that Coco has given us would be excellent for christmas cards too, don't you think?
