Vintage & Distressed Tilda

Hello Friends, I'm feeling a little better today (must be the whisky in the Toddies), my DH has been looking after me with hot drinks, he even attempted some scrambled egg for me this morning. (Say no more!!) but rubber comes to mind, hehehe!! honestly he's been a treasure.

I've managed to make this card throughout the day, I'm really loving this Vintage, Distressed look, I don't have any vintage stamps but I think Tilda looks wonderful on any card. I've also made a little pull out tag to reveal the word Love.

There are quite a few challenges that she will fit into so without further ado here they are.

1. Passion for Promarkers Challenge: A beautiful sketch with any choice of promarker colours and the theme of Love
2. Simon Says Challenge: This weeks theme was Hot Chocolate or if you didn't have an image with this theme then a Pink/Brown combination of colours would be acceptable.
3. Creative Inspirations Challenge: Are asking us to distress our projects. I've used chalks to give a distressed feel to my card.
4. Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge: Are looking for a vintage style in your projects, I don't have a vintage image but I've tried to make the rest of the card look kinda distressed and vintage. Not sure if it worked.!!
5. Charisma Cardz Challenge: Are looking for Brown/Pink/Caramel/Cream colour scheme, this is my second entry into the challenge because I just love the colours they have chosen.
6. Flutter by Wednesday Challenge: Danni and the girls are looking for an angel, butterfly, fairy, well I've got neither but I do have Tilda and she has wings, so I'm hoping this counts, they also want to see something new on your project. I've used my new metal brads.
7. Our Creative Corner Challenge: Are looking for 3d effect/Layering, there are loads of layers on my card and Tilda is 3d too.
8. Fab n Funky Challenge: Any occasion, any project of your choice.
9. Paperplay Challenge: Are looking for Precious Metals, I've used my new metal brads.
10. Ro
ses on Paper: This week the theme is to use your favourite medium, mine at the moment is promarkers.

Thank you so much for visiting, I do hope you enjoyed it and please come back and see me soon.

Hugs Suzi xx
