Tilda's Treasure!

Evening all

Today I would like to share the first card I've made with my new Magnolia stamp - Pirate Tilda.  I really struggled with this one, as I just had so many ideas, and seemed to want to try and put them all on the one card!!!  However, I finally settled on a black and white theme, and am fairly happy with the finished article.  Tilda was coloured with Copics,  I made the skeleton papers myself, using a skeleton that I found on my first cardmaking CD.  I decided part way through to enter this card in the Just Magnolia challenge - Week 49, and so have made a gatefold card for a change.  I covered the inside of the card with more homemade paper, and then added a sentiment circle cut with a couple of Nesties. 

Would love to know what you think - good or bad.

Thanks for looking
