Nice to 'pleat' you!

Another day and another Tilda...
I know, i know, Minxy and Tilda don't usually go, but i seem to have grown a very tiny soft spot for her lately! This 'Cupid Tilda' in particular is super cute, i've coloured her with my new Polychromos {pencils by faber-castell} which i have to say are just fabby, and make a nice change from the copics, they have a lovely softness about them and blend well too.
As i had coloured a Tilda i decided to join in with the Special monthly
Just Magnolia challenge, the theme 'Paper Pleating',
For this i used some old book pages and then inked the edges to make them more visible,
I pleated in a curve to create a circle to follow the
fab sketch provided by this weeks Allsorts #34 Challenge
The papers are MME and CC and the flowers are from my stash.
Thanks for taking the time to come see my card, leave a comment so i know you came by :)

Hi! I like the way you mix altered art or mixed media with magnolia stamps. Very creative!
