Magnolia Down Under Challenge #42

Masking is this week's theme at Magnolia Down Under, I love it, it's just so much fun!!  Anyway I had so much fun with last weeks challenge where we had to just use black and white to colour our Tilda, and at the time I thought it would be great fun to do Tilda in sepia colours,  but add a little colour to it  (like they used to do to the black and white photo's back in the 50's.....?? or earlier)  I'm so loving the vintage thing at the moment and OMGosh the papers that I have stashed away are just so great!!  I bought them, I reckon about 6 years ago when I first started to Scrapbook, and at the time I was scrapping our Travels - and everything for that theme was vintage!  Don't know why it was like that, and I thought it was just soooooooooo boring!!  So I dragged out some pretty paper which I thought was just perfect and went from there, and I just sent a little tut on how to make the paper rose, by my friend, so I had to try it out!!.  Hope you like it!!
Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft and Brown, K&Company Life's Journey (can you believe I still know the name?) and Kaiser Lilac Avenue.
Embellishments: Tickled Pink Stamps Leaves, Making Memories Brads, and I made paper Rose!!
