Magnolia Down Under ~ an Orange Girly Sketch!

Over at Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog - The girls have given a sketch to follow which can be seen here. Not only is there a sketch, but, it MUST be GIRLY and some ORANGE must be seen too! 
They're not asking much are they!! Pffffh!

I've created a box which is going to be going to a dear friend with some crafting goodies inside, and this is how I have decorated the top.
I've used this gorgeous Tilda from the 'Pink Collection' from last year which were created to raise money and awareness of Breast Cancer. 
This is the first time I've used her, and I thought she'd only look good in PINK, how wrong was I?? I love this colour combo on her, and will probably use it more often.

A close up of her! I've used Distress Inks to colour her - I think I'm getting better at them.. Well I hope I am :D)
I've used Shabby Shutters for her shirt and socks, and Spiced Marmalade for her dress. I cheated and used Copics for her fleshy bits! (E50, E00, E51, R11 and R20).
Another angle of the box.

Tilda and sentiment from Magnolia, Bloom and Grow Papers by MME, Distress Inks, MS Heart Border Punch, Large flower from Wild Orchid Crafts and the smaller cherry blossom ones I won in a gorgeous candy from Helene - The flowers are the only item I can bare to touch and use (as there are a few of them, and I felt I could spare two!), the rest is so delicious I don't want to use it! Keep looking at it and 'wow' its amazing, I feel so lucky! Thank you Helene! 
The ribbon and charm are from my stash.

Thank you for popping by and please take a peek at the DT's creations over at MDUC blog as they are amazing!
