Girly but not pink

Good morning. 
It's a lovely morning here, sun is shining and the wind is not whipping the trees.
Been feeling a bit battered my self lately though, first I slipped and bounced down a couple of stairs at home (must take more water with it LOL) and yesterday part of my back tooth broke off with my breakfast!.The tooth is just annoying but off to the dentists on Tuesday, the pulled muscles are a bit more troublesome. It didn't hurt when I did it, but yesterday evening I was wiping up and I thought OW that hurt! So I better not do too much cleaning today, more time to craft!!!!!!

Here is today's card.

This is the first card I made for my Sister in law's birthday but went with the pink and purple CAS card instead.

I have been wanting to use this Lea'bilities frame square for a while but this is the first time, The sitting Tilda is another new purchase from the sale bin which I thought was very cute. The paper in the background is from Forever Friends and the stripe is an off cut from the bits box as are the little flags and the ribbon bows are from the stash. The cloud background under the frame was a simple square of white card cut slightly bigger. I then die cut some Joy clouds, a new purchase, to mask out some of the card and used Broken China distress ink to create the sky. The frame is cut from 12x12 metallic card I've had since the year dot, as is the mount. The flowers are punched from scraps and Tilda was coloured with Copics as follows:-

skin - E15,11,00,000,R20
Scarf and trousers - B99,97,95,93
Hair and shoes - E51,23,55,57,59

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
