Spring Tilda

Had to go to Edinburgh this morning to return some stuff to M&S and visit Costco, didn't get the chance to buy anything crafty but when I got home the postie had been with three parcels! Included in one was this lovely Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams collection. I also got my first Promarkers but I need more practise before I show you my "skills or lack of" in that department.
Magnolia Mania's challenge this week is Easter, here is my card:
I followed the Sketch Saturday sketch. Tilda is coloured with watercolour pencils...all dressed in her pacey new with her Easter bonnet and spring flowers! Backing papers and card are from Anna Griffin.........I've had them for years but kept them for stroking lol. Card is finished with Prima flowers, a button, ribbon, pearls and a sentiment.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles - Lets get Girly

Tonight whilst gathering the bits for this card I decided to get a piece of lace from a bag of wool/embroidery bits that's waiting to be sorted from our old loft......having found what I was looking for I dug a little deeper and found ten hanks of satin ribbon of varying widths and colours....they're gorgeous....I've used the pink across the middle of this card.

  1. Carol, good job you live too far away otherwise I'd come and steal this card as it's gorgeous. Would love some more Magnolias but had to get some more Sweet Pea stamps for my DT work - I really had to be forced to buy them ....... not!! As for Promarkers it's just a bit of practice. If you need any help just shout. I've also found many a useful blogs for help including some setp-by-step tutorials by Debbi at:
