Gardening Tilda

Hello friends can you believe another post from me on consecutive days! I said I was going to try harder this week and last night I made this little lady and I wanted to share it with you.
I love my little easel from Sir Stampalot, that is my all time favourite shop, I order it one day and it's here the next! 
This is one of the new Tilda's from the Sweet Rainbow collection, I don't think I've ever used one this quickly before - they sit in my craft room for months before I get around to actually using them, some have been there for years and are still unused - shameful I know.
The grass and leaves die are Magnolia Doo Hickeys and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, Tilda was coloured with copics and I distressed around the Watering Can card with Tim Holtz crackle paint. The little butterfly has been in my stash forever!

I would like to enter this into the new Magnolia challenge
which has a 'Birthdays' theme for this week

Who have a 'Summer' theme

Who want to see 'Something Punched'
I hope my die cuts count!
