What a beautie of a day, I do hope it lasts. I'm starting my motor home search next week and would love for the weather to hold. It's my retirement present to myself :)
Today's card has been done in between reading a really good book in the garden and crafting. I've finished the book now, so no more distractions
I've used one of my new Tilda images. I treated myself to a couple or three the other day and I've been colouring for the past couple of evenings, got loads now, ready for cards. This one is Tilda sitting. Hasn't she grown up quickly, doesn't seem two minutes since she was a baby. I made this card with a couple of challenges in mind, both asked for a pocket, so here it is, with Tilda sitting on it. Isn't she cute, with her cherry wellies? The challenges are listed at the end of the post.
The pocket is made from a piece of purple Papermania card and then embellished with some lace, faux glitter stitching and a button with twine. Tilda is coloured with promarkers and mounted on foam. The button background paper is from Clipartfairy and the spotty background is again, Papermania, from their rich purple collection. The border pattern is the wild flowers around the page punch from Martha Stewart.
All the flowers are hand made using MCS, they're just not going down!( see here,)and the floral flourishes are spellbinder dies. I used holographic silver and purple for these.
To finish I added cream ribbon from my stash, a Hunkidory sentiment and some card candy.
Hope you like it and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
