Seeing Spots! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
  I had a very productive day in my craft room yesterday, it was one of those days where I didn't have my usual indecision over what stamps to use and then the colours and papers etc, I just got right into craft mode & created two cards & even sorted out stamps & papers for another three cards :)
I would have happily stayed up in my attic craft room playing but the heat got the better of me despite the fans on full in an attempt to keep Daisy Mae (cat) & I cool up there. In all honesty Daisy Mae didn't seem at all bothered by the heat but then I always make sure my little girlie has the biggest fan blowing on her while I bake lol.

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
 I am thrilled to say I am staying in the fabulous Simon family & we have some new teamies to welcome this week & some of our lovely friends to wave a fond farewell to, as well so don't forget to hop over & meet my new teamies.

My lovely teamies and I are featuring
on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge. 

I love combining older Tilda's with new although it feels like I haven't done this for a while so I dusted off my huge Tilda collection to find some cuties to go with my Paper Smooches Kite stamp & choose two little Tilda's I haven't yet used on a card. I've chosen a 2007 Tilda & a 2014 Tilda & just look at the difference! The size and face shape, eyes etc have changed so much & not forgetting the trademark wings little Tilda's always had back then :)
The copic colours I've used are -
Kite & Clouds - B23, B000, B0000 / C3. C1. C00
Tilda in Fifties Outfit - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothing - RV63, RV00, RV000 / C3, C1, C00
Tilda In Lace Pants - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E27, E31, E50, clothing - G21, G43, G40 / B21, B000, B0000 / C3, C1, C00 boots - E53, E51, E50
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
