Four in One!

Hi everyone! Another glorious day. Been away for a swim this morning again then done some shopping. Wee Steven decided to have a little sleep this afternoon so I managed to start this card. It took me ages to choose what to use for this card then it all just seemed to fit into place. I wanted to take part in four challenges but didn't know how I was going to manage to do them all in time. Now, I have managed them all in one card, lol!

I chose an image and the papers for the Just Magnolia Challenge which is a summer theme. Then, I was looking for a background to go with it and I came across this image that had been sent to me by Mariska and I thought this was more summery. This Butterfly Tilda also has some fantastic wings on her which means it fits the Allsorts Challenge this week - wings. It has been coloured with Faber-Castelle and WH Smith watercolour pencils. The papers are cupcakes 'mini fancies' and blue and green cardstock from my stash. I ran one of the blue cardstocks throught the Bug with the 'tiny bubbles' embossing folder and the other one, I punched with a Fiskars punch at each end. The sentiment is from a Personal Impressions stamp set. And I have followed the fabulous sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

I also wanted to make this card for the Simon Says Challenge this week. The challenge is 'Happy Mail'. We are being asked to make a card or gift for a sick child. Make a child smile by sending them some Happy Mail. Show support for Post Pals or Make a Child Smile.

Hope you like it

This is lovely, Suzanne. Must be the first card you've made for a while without pinching some of my stash! I hope everyone joins in with the last challenge and makes a card for a sick child. It must make their day.

Oh Suzanne this is a beauty love how you have coloured Tilda and the background papers/colours work perfectly. I know what you mean about wanting to enter the challenges but there is never enough time is there. I have to do the same as you try and work a few into one card lol.
