Tilda Fairy Summery Card.

Hi Guys',

How's everyone today?  Did you enjoy the summer? I know I joke, but I do hope we get more. Been absent for a few days because I've been motor home hunting and guess what, I got one. Woohoo. Have to wait a while to pick it up, but hey, I can wait. ( not ) Think I may have to start a 'Camper' blog. That'll be a laugh.

So, down to today's card. The inspiration for this one is from the sketch  on the the Official Tilda Inspiration Blog, or T.O.M.I.C, for short. I've really taken quite a shine to Tilda, she is so sweet and the stamps are great. Got quite a few now and been stamping and colouring a'plenty, so better get some cards made with them now.


This image is Tilda Fairy. She's been coloured with promarkers, and the wings and outline have been glittered with glamour dust, for a bit of definition and bling. She's been mounted with foam onto a cream parchment spellbinders deckled rectangle die, distressed with Tim Holtz spun sugar.

The backing papers are from my docrafts cd's, mainly woodland friends. The doily on this card is a file called doilies, would you believe, from SVGcuts and was cut on my cricut, using the sure-cuts-a-lot software. 

The flowers are all from my stash, hand made using MCS countryside garden and the butterfly was made in lemon parchment using the pergamano butterfly grid.  A couple of pearl hat pins, some organza pink ribbon and a 'Just for you' charm completes the card.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-

Oo La La Challenge Blog - Make it girly.
Midweek Magnolias - Bling it on.
Just Magnolia - Anything goes + doilie.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything goes.
