Two Challenge Combo

Good Morning everyone! I have been a terrible blogger recently. I am really sorry but I have been very busy with the family and the new house.

Anyway, this card is for Just Magnolia Week 2 and Sketch Saturday #48. Over at Just Magnolia, the challenge is a colour combo - 'Pink and Green' and at Sketch Saturday, a fab sketch by Jo - I think!
Now, when I seen the sketch, I thought, ' Oh - need to have a go at this one'. And, when I seen the colour challenge, I thought, 'Oh No'. I don't do colour challenges - hate them. However, I decided I would give it a go and I thought I would combine them since having a sketch to work with would help me with the colour theme. And...I absolutely loved it. It was great fun to make and I am really really pleased with result.

The image is obviously Tilda, I'm unsure of the right name, I got it from ebay a while back. She is coloured with distress inks, stickles on her wings and cut out and mounted with foam pads onto the card after all the bits were in place. The papers are Basic Grey 'Sultry'. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. I punched the paper strips with a Fiskars Threading Water punch. The ribbon is a string of flowers from my mums stash. The roses are from Hobbycraft. I have added Flower Soft to Tilda's hair and the flowerrs in her hand. I also added a ring of Flower Soft to the oval shape round the sentiment. I carried the sketch over to the inside.

This is quite a girly card for me but I love it. Hope you like it too

Can I also say a big thank you to Lorraine for the lovely award she has given me. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to pick this up. I will pop on later today to show it and pass it on. Thank you very much Lorraine
