Just Magnolia meets Friday Sketchers!

My wonderful friend Jill gave me this lovely tilda image yesterday and I just couldn't wait to ink her up. So I though I would use her to make a card for two of this weeks challenges. I have used the sketch from friday sketchers and I am also entering it into this weeks Just Magnolia challenge, whose theme is 'summer'. Well ladybugs reming me of summer so I thought this tildas was perfect!

I paper pieced her apron and boots and coloured the remainder of her with distress inks. I also added glossy accents to the ladybug before cutting her out with my new labels nesties. The spotty paper is from the DCWV christmas stack. CS is mix of coredinations and kraft CS. I embossed the bottom of the kraft CS with a cuttlebug border folder and added distress inks to make it pop a little! The sentiment is from a See D's set. The felt flower is making memories and I also punched out a retro flower with my xcut punch before I embossed it with the swiss dots folder. I used one of new spacers from 'The Hobby House' and added a pearl brad to finish.

Well I've had a hectic day at work, going to have some tea and then maybe a bit of blog hopping before an early night me thinks!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Vicky -x-
