Pink Ink Sketch Challenge DT - Ann's sketch

Phew! I'm so late with my Pink Ink Sketch Challenge card! I almost didn't make one at all - I have had a terrible week and hadn't crafted since last weekend! Unheard of for me! The postman brought my new stash of Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams stamps this morning though.....how could I resist?? Hubby took the kids to the park to enjoy the autumn sunshine we've had today and I managed to create something :). The hardest part was deciding which new Tilda to ink up first?? OMG I just adore this new collection don't you?? I seriously would love to have them all!! I have used some gorgeous new goodies on my card that were a fabulous birthday present from my beautiful friend Louise - thanks again hunni! I'm entering my card into The Shabby Tea Room's challenge which is Fall Flowers, and Truly Scrumptious' challenge which is distressing.
How cute is Sparkling Tilda!?!?! Wrapped up for bonfire night with her sparklers - I just love her skirt and scarf!! Sooooo cute! I have coloured the image with copics and added gold stickles to the sparklers.

OMG how lucky am I!?!?! See the gorgeous daisies?? They are from the Magnolia store in Sweden!! I almost couldn't bare to put them on my card LOL! The leaves are by Prima and I added some more flowers from my stash and some doohickey rose leaves. The sparkley stem is from my stash. I cut the bottom of the card with a doohickey die and added a string of pearls along the bottom too.

Another gorgeous daisy!! I have pricked around the edge of the image mat with a pin and I have added some cheesecloth behind the image that I have distressed with gold glimmer mist and some brown distress ink.

The ribbon is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the twine is from Whiff of Joy.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Pink Ink Sketch Challenge!! Did you like my backdrop today LOL?? I thought I'd take advantage of the kids' conker collection to photograph my autumn card - can you believe how many they have collected LOL?? Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend! x

B-ful card Jane! That you can make such a card only in the time that the kids went to the park... It costs me 3 till 4 hours to make a card.
Lovely colors you used and your background is very nice ;-)
