Back to school Tilda!!

Am I showing my age now!! Lol!!! Well over at Totally Tilda this fortnight we are looking for your back to school creations!! Up here in sunny Scotland the kids have been back for over a week, so the tears have died down a little (tears of happiness from the parents that is!!! ROFL!!) Now I didn't have a classic "school" Tilda (baaad Jacqui!!) but hopefully that will show that you can use your other Tildas for this theme!!
I thought this little Tilda looked reasonably "schoolish" albeit a slighty french school girl!! I am rather pleased with the way the colouring came out on this card!! Red is my nemesis, but I have recently taken the plunge with some neenah cardstock and I have to say that it has made an unbelievable difference to my colouring!!! I tried to colour in an image that I had stamped on my previous cardstock and could hardly bear it!!!
