tilda with nesties die


With some christmas money i got i decided to take the plunge and i bought my first nestablties dies. I decided to go with a shape i use alot and that is rectangles. I purchased classic rectangles small. It took a bit but i figured out the correct combo for my cuttle bug. I colored in this tilda image that someone stamped and sent me. I used copics to color her in and basic grey lemonade pattern paper for the background. I hope you like my simple card.
