Friday Sketcher's challenge

Well after having no mojo I ended up making 3 cards yesterday! Think I just needed to get on with it after not crafting over Christmas! This one is for my Niece's birthday next week and I used the fabulous sketch at Friday Sketcher's challenge. It's a special challenge this week with a blog hop. I think if I read it right that we have until next Friday to enter (hope so LOL) but don't quote me on that! I have used one of my new Tilda's from the winter/christmas kit and I have used some of my new distress ink colours to colour her in. The stripey socks and underskirt I painted to match the striped paper and I thought it was a good idea at the time but now I look at it in the daylight I'm not so sure LOL, the dress looks OK but think I might have overdone it with the socks LOL. Poor Tilda, I must say I wouldn't dress my little girl in socks like that! The papers are all Bo Bunny, I think it is Alissa Swirls but I have just used the last of it and the name bit went months ago. I have distressed the edges with worn lipstick distress ink. The striped paper is punched with MS doiley lace punch.

The gorgeous flowers are by Prima and the gem brads are from the Hobby House. I have punched the leaves with a Woodware punch from the reverse side of the BP

The sentiment is also from the winter/christmas kit. I have stamped it with Black Soot distress ink.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
