I'm a Sucker for You !!

Hi everyone!
Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! The sun is shining at my house and the temperature is great.
Gosh I am finding it hard to get time to stamp with DH away. It is awful when you have all the chores to do by yourself LOL LOL.......
I did manage to get one card started yesterday and finished today. This Tilda is " 60's Tilda " from the 'Yummy for your Tummy Collection'. Diana has them for you to buy at her store.
I know this one has been made my many girls in the past week or so - but there was no way I could pass up making her when my name is : CANDY !! LOL LOL
As I look at her now I am wondering if I should had a rhinestone to the four corners? This is not my entry for CAS this week ( I have more than 3 layers too ) - but I love making cards with less.......they somehow seem much more classy to me.
You can let me know what you think, OK?
Here she is:

and a bit closer for you:

Here is the inside - left:

and the right side:

The DP is from DCWV - Sweet Stack. The two coloured cardstocks are both from SU - Green Galore and Pink Passion.
Tilda was stamped onto white - coloured with Copics and cut out. The sucker was made from two separate pieces of pink cut with my Spellbinder Nestabilities and then a smaller piece of green and an even smaller piece of DP. I used a Q-Tip for the sucker handle. Took off all the soft stuff and put it in between the two pink pieces. Tied a very interesting pink felt ribbon on my Bow Easy into three and attached it with glue dots. Tilda is stacked on many pieces of 3 D tape to get her high enough to sit on top of the sucker! I made the sentiment with my computer and printed it onto the pink paper and then cut it out with one of my sentiment punches from SU. It has Star Dust Stickles around it. It is also on one layer of 3 D tape. Tilda herself has some of the same Stickles on the dots of her dress and on the sucker and then I put a layer of Crystal Lacquer over the Stickles.
For the inside I just cut the paper to size and used one of my border punches and cut out suckers from the DP - made sticks from white CS and glued them onto the pink. The opposite side has the same suckers cut out - this time with pink sticks and narrow white ribbon tied into bows and attached with glue dots and then they were glued to the paper.
Hope you enjoy this one ~ many thanks for looking.
Love Candy
