3 challenges - 1 card!

I started making this card for the Just Magnolia challenge this week which is to use 'pink and green'. I also decided to use Bev's sketch over at Stamp with fun to combine 2 challenges. It was only when I had finished the card that I realised it also meets this weeks papertake weekly challenge which is to use 'spots and stripes'. I like it when I can combine challenges as my craft time is limited at present until my uni course is finished (only 12 weeks left!).

This Tilda image was kindly sent to me by a friend. It was only when I'd finished this card that I realised Tilda should be sat on something! Oh well! Coloured with my distress inks. Spotty paper from Papermania and Glittered stripey paper from DCWV Nanna's kids stack. CS from DCWV. CS and DP edges inked with pink ink pad. Scalloped edge created with SU scallop border punch. Pearl adhesive gems added to the scallops. Sentiment is from SU 'Best Yet' set. Flower cheeky flat clip from Making Memories.

The rose is from another Tilda image that I was going to throw away (I'd messed up with Tilda's skin colour) so I salvaged it and added it to this image, I thought it went well with the colours I've used! This was the card before I added the Rose, what do you think? Does it work with the rose added?

Well I am off work this week and have spent the last 2 days doing uni work, made good progress with my final essay yesterday so I'm having a day off today to do some crafting and spend some time with my OH before he goes on nights tonight!

The sun is shining today here, I hope it is wherever you are. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Hugs, Vicky x
