Red and White

Paid a flying visit to Durham today to the passport office. Slight delay on the way there as a suspect package was found on the train and we had to wait 45 minutes for the police to arrive to remove it. Managed a flying visit to the Crafty Nook before lunch then it was a case of legging it back to the station to catch the train home again.
Any way onto crafting, this was made last night and left to dry:
Tilda has been coloured with promarkers and her dress and the bow on her hat have been paper pieced. Backing papers are from a DCWV adhesive stack, heart doilies were in my stash, Tilda is mounted onto a Marriane Diecut mat. Card is finished with white satin ribbon, a red rose (from WOC), a die cut corner and swirls, pearls and smaller flowers from my stash.
