Tilda with roses for Mum

Hello my dears, well as predicted the rain is falling again here in Scotland,  but I don't mind so much as the garden needed a good soaking. lol.  so long as it doesn't continue over the weekend.

I've made this card for a few challenges and taken elements from each one. Tilda is coloured with pro markers and derwent water colour pencils. I 've double layered her and distressed the edges with TH distress wheel and inks. I added a little glitter to her head band.  The full recipe is below this post if you would like to look at the other items used. I have machine stitched the papers to the card.

These are the challenges that inspired my card.
