Bright Red Ladybird Tilda

Hi girls, thankfully today it is cooler and it has rained.... I know to some of you this may seem a bit odd but we have been having temperatures in the mid/high 30s and I have been soooooo hot. I have been finding it very difficult to get the energy to do anything...... even craft!!!!

So, this afternoon I have finally managed to do make a card. It covers four challenges; firstly Just Magnolia Challenge 12 where the theme is charms, secondly Secret Crafter Challenge 39 where the theme is three ribbons.... I have actually used four so I hope it is ok!, Creative Card Crew Challenge 18 also has a theme of ribbons...handy!.. and finally, I have followed the fab sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday.

The gorgoeus Tilda image is from a blog bud and she is coloured with distress inks. The papers are pebbles ink and it is lush double sided paper, and I have used my d'vine swirl folder for the embossing. The flowers are primas, the charm, brad, spacer and cute little ladybird are all from my stash. I have just got a white inkssentials pen for highlighting and I'm working on the less is more philosophy until I get the hang of it.... I'm just dabbing it about at the moment, so you will have to bear with me!!! lol!!

The inside is nice and simple and, as you can see, the MS punch has made an appearance.... you were warned!!!! lol!! The sentiment was computer generated and behind it I have made a little pocket where money or a gift card can be added.

Finally, a close up of the very cute Tilda.
