Just Magnolia Challenge DT - my sketch

Yippee!! It's Friday and of course that means it is time for another challenge at Just Magnolia, and this week we have a sketch by me!! Now, these are unusual colours for me, don't think I've ever done a card in these colours but I wanted to use one of the yellow roses I picked up at Hobby Craft recently and the blue blossoms looked best with them when I was looking for a match, and that was that!! The papers are all scraps from my stash but I do know that the one with swirls on and the punched one which is the reverse of it is Bo Bunny! I have distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink and stickles.

I coloured this gorgeous mid summer Tilda with distress inks and added a touch of stickles to her dress and around her feet. She's so pretty with her flower garland in her hair! The butterflies were punched with my corner punch from the MS butterflies punch around the page punch. I simply cut the bottom wings out myself.

As I said, the large yellow rose is from Hobby Craft and the rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They're all sprayed with glimmer mist. The leaves were punched with a Woodware punch.

The ribbon is from my stash and the gorgeous pearl ribbon slider is from the Hobby House.
Hope you like my card (and the sketch) and can join us this week at Just Magnolia! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's cards! Thanks for looking! x
