Butterfly Tilda!

Evening all! Today's card was made for three of this weeks challenges. I used the sketch over at sketch saturday and also added some faux stitching around the edges of the card to meet with cute card thursdays challenge of ' a stitch in time'. I also used three of the challenge colours over at simon says stamp this week, yellow, orange and green!

I used this beautiful Tilda image that was sent to me by my wonderful friend Janny! Thanks so much hun, you are just the best! I coloured her in with my new koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor {I'm getting better at this technique the more I practice it and I love the effect!} before cutting out with my nestie labels. The fabulous papers are from the stunning MME Bloom and Grow papers which I got from Elaine! I just LURRVE these papers!! CS is coredinations. I have added faux stitching around the edges of the card with a faux stitch stamp that is part of a HOTP stamp set. The flowers are prima and the flower centers are legless brads from craftwork cards with a little glossy accents added to finish! Almost forgot to say the sentiment is from Hero Arts!

I really love how this cards turned out, not normally the sort of colours I use but I htink they look so summery. It makes a change from me using pink all the time! Lol!

Well I've got to get off now, my tea is ready! Lucky for me my OH has cooked tonight, but it does mean I will have to do the washing up! :-( I will be back later {after tea and washing up} to have a lok at what you've all been up to!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
