Just Magnolia challenge - Martine's sketch

Good afternoon! A first for me, I have actually made a card in the daytime! My lovely hubby is on holiday and as we are confined to the downstairs today whilst the upstairs is being plastered (yay finally!) he has played with the children and given me a couple of hours off to do as I wished! Crafting is so much easier in daylight! So I decided to use the gorgeous sketch by Martine to enter this week's Just Magnolia challenge.

I used this beautiful image from the summer kit, I love this one so much, perfect for lots of different occasions I think. I also have a new toy.....I have finally got my hands on a gorgeous MS doiley lace punch!!! Expect to see lots of this! at least until the newness dies off LOL I love the delicate look it gives so much!

The gorgeous butterfly was part of a set of four that were mounted on some handmade paper that my Mum gave me, I'm afraid I don't know where they were from as she bought them a long time ago and couldn't remember where or even why she bought them!

The hydrangeas are prima, the half pearls were actually mint green so I've coloured them a bronze colour using copics.

I have stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp around the edges of the sentiment mat and have hand written the sentiment with a white gel pen.

The tag with Tilda pulls out so a message can be written on the reverse. I have not stuck Tilda's arms to the tag so that when the tag is in place her elbows are sat on the sentiment mat. No inside as yet, I will do one but I couldn't push my luck too much in one day LOL! Thanks for looking! x
