Tilda's In Venice - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello peeps,
 Thanks so much for your birthday wishes, I had so many beautiful cards & lovely crafty gifts from blog friends as well as being thoroughly spoiled by my family.
Jodie and I are having a girlie day today at a posh Health Spa courtesy of hubby who thinks the only way I may have a relaxing day is if I have no choice lol. Eek posh Health Spa means we need to try to act like proper ladies for today lol. I am a bit apprehensive about it as it's not usually my thing, my main concern is can I actually do "nothing" for a whole day or will I go insane fidgeting & start rummaging in the cupboards looking for a hoover lol.

Apologies for being late with my post, on Tuesday Jodie at last had to give evidence in court for the final time about the nasty fight she witnessed in town back in 2011! I was so proud of Jode, she coped really well even though she was so nervous & the defence barristers for the two thugs on trial were really hard on her & kept trying to confuse her, but she kept her cool (just) & we heard last night that both men were found guilty thankfully, & Jodie & her friends received messages from the victims & their families thanking them for being brave & testifying.
Today is Yesterday was new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is

My card today features a Magnolia Mini World Tilda who I have paired with the Venice background stamp so I have covered both themes with one image.
I've created the lovely grid frame around my image by using a Simon Says Stamp exclusive border die & the lovely metal lantern is a Prima Treasure, the links are at the bottom of the page :)
I've used so many different copics I was unable to keep track of the numbers I used sorry peeps.
