You light up my life

I really love this cute Tilda image and have used her to make a gift wallet for that special someone that always goes that little bit further to help out in life.
I have followed the sketch on Friday-sketchers, this is created by Beatrix. Beatrix makes some lovely cards and you should pop by her blog and check them out.
I started looking for papers and picked out the red background paper and then there where a couple of others and I couldn't choose between them so have used them all together with chocolate card.
I had some letters that I bought that where grey and I really wanted to use them for this card. I triple embossed them with moonglow embossing powders and then embossed a pattern on them to make them blend in with my card. The moonglow powder is Holly Berry and is red with a gold twist.
The flower I used was white and I coloured it with Distress Inks. The charms hanging of are freshwater pearls and I twisted the wire holding the made with love heart to make it more interesting.
The image is coloured with prisma pencils and copic pens.
Stamp: Magnolia christmas stamp.
Papers: K&co
Letters: K&co
