Friday Sketchers and Just Magnolia

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is ok and enjoying the brighter weather. Still not hot but at least its dry. Am I tempting fate again?

This card is for
1.) Friday Sketchers #51 - A sketch
2.) Just Magnolia - In Stitches

It's Friday Sketchers One Year Anniversary this week and to celebrate they have two fab prizes on offer and also... each DT member is giving away the card they have made for the challenge and also some RAKs. Be sure and join in the fun.
Just Magnolia has a fab prize on offer to and since it can be combined with any other challenges then its a good way to catch up with all those fab challenges that we never manage to fit in.

Anyway, for the card I have followed the sketch using papers from Nitwit Collections. I have stitched round each layer and Tilda has been cut out as she was too large for the sketch otherwise. She is coloured with Distress Inks and Cosmic Shimmers. I have added a punched swirl at the top left of the image just under my punched flower. The flowers at the bottom left are punched also with the exception of the one in the middle. Mini brads added to centre of punched flowers and a Papermania brad in the other one.

On the inside, a square of design paper, 2 punched swirls, 2 punched flowers with mini brads in the middle and a Label Nestie cut on the Bug. The sentiments are from a set by Hampton Arts - I think.

Theres a lot on this card for me - I'm usually a clean and simple kinda girl, lol!

Hope you like it.

Great card, Suzanne. Love the stitching and the lovely wee flowers and brads. Tilda is looking great, peeking out from behind the flower.
