Just because .......

Morning All my sweet stamping friends!
Don't know how long it's been since I made a card just because I wanted to hehe!! I've been so hectic with dt work and the boys on school hols that there's been no time for a fun card. Last night when they were all in bed I decided to have a little fun and use my latest Tilda, isn't she just beautiful?! I even whipped out the old sewing machine that's been gathering dust and stitched around the edges.

All my dps are Magnolia papers which I distressed slightly. Tilda has been coloured in with ProMarkers and I added stickles on the trims of her trousers and around the umbrella. The sentiment stamp is also a newbie from Magnolia. The flourish is a Marianne Die and all the blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges :
Just Magnolia - Let's get sentimental
Totally Tilda - Stitching
Paperplay - Pink to make the boys wink
Totally Gorjuss - Star
Fab 'n Funky - Flower Power
Paper Pretties - Summer
