I am once again practicing with Tildas (thank you, Tara, for giving me a push!), this little beauty called Romantic Tilda is from Magnolia Wedding Collection.

Isn't she just adorable with her dainty dress and posh parasol! :) She is coloured with Copic Markers and accented with Sakura Stardust pens and Frosted Lace Stickles.
