Lili of the Valley and Just Magnolia challenges

My Mum asked me to make a card for her to give to my Dad....hmmmm, I have to say this was quite difficult as I don't really have any stamps for male birthday and she didn't want it too slushy.....she hasn't seen it yet, hope she likes it! I used the gorgeous sketch over at Lili of the Valley by Marcea and also the monochrome theme at Just Magnolia.

Tilda with Hearts has been coloured with copics and is carrying chocolate hearts for the brown theme LOL! Two of my brown copics ran out while colouring this image, I've got four run out now, think it is time to restock, they're my main colours! Annoying how they all go at once!

I stamped a Stempelglede grunge heart in brushed cordoruy distress ink and a Stempelglede grunge stamp around the edges in antique linen. The little sentiment tags I made myself and have threaded them and some buttons onto some hemp string.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
