Tilda and butterfly

My gorgeous new stamp.......I just love her lol. Had a trip around Hobbycraft yesterday just for a nose and boy do they know how to charge! Picked up a few bits and bobs.........as you do.......then found a full set of 72 watercolour pencils for £50 - a set of 36 were priced at over £40 so decided they were a must buy along with a pack of two mini easels. Checked on the web and the pencils are priced generally over £70! So a worthwhile trip. I coloured Tilda in last night with my new watercolour pencils.
I followed the Sketch and Stash sketch for this card. The green backing paper is a free download from Pink Petticoat and is being aired for the first time, checked paper from Anna Griffin - from my bit box, sentiment from Madaboutcards. Card is finished with some swirls, a gingham bow, a rosebud and some gems.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
My Time to Craft - On the Spot
Magnolia Mania - Checked
Magnolia-licious - Pink and Green
Stamptacular Sunday - Girls and Swirls
Creative Inspirations - Punches and Dies
A Spoonful of Sugar - All Creatures Great and Small
Fussy and Fancy - Card for a Child
