Sunshine smiles...

Today's card features Moulin Rouge Tilda, from Magnolia's Once Upon A Time collection. I am a singer and musical theatre performer, and am really excited to be in preparation for a showcase this month. Performing always makes me smile, and so I decided to make my card using lovely sunshine yellow. So here she is:

I didn't have any yellow flowers so I made the large flower using my SU Blossom punch. 

Here is a close look at Tilda:
