Summer Tilda

I haven't had much time to post but have actually manged to get online this weekend as well as make a card or two! I have also given my blog a makeover, though may switch to Wordpress, I haven't decided yet. Anyway, back to the card...Tilda in a sunhat picking flowers which is for the latest Just Magonolia Challenge #10 Summer. Tilda is coloured with Promarkers and as you can see I have used a scallop punch to cut round the image and for the card mats. I just added floral embellishments and a little hat I have had since I started making cards, just never got around to using it! I don't recall where the bright and colourful backing paper is from. The sentiment was made using a small Cuttlebug embossing folder on gold mirri.



Thank you for your kind comments on my cards Lavender. Your card is perfect for the challenge as you have really captured the feeling of summer sunshine with the lovely yellows and golds.
Re. the Leanne Ellis Poise card which we both made, at different times and for different challenges - I was so surprised to see that we had both chosen identical colours for the dress and hair! I definitely had not seen your blog until tonight, so it must be a case of "great minds think alike" !!!! Your blog is lovely - hope to chat again soon. Cheers, Sylvia x
