A Beautiful Sketch

Good Morning,  I'm so excited this morning.  Why!! well in about an hours time I will be off to the SECC in Glasgow with my Daughter to browse the hundreds of stalls all selling lovely craft goodies and I have a shopping list to break my bank managers heart.

I'm also meeting up with some of the girls from Sugar Nellie over on facebook, Debbi Glen is demonstrating her fab colouring skills with Pro markers, it's going to be a lovely day out.  But before I toddle off I wanted to show you another sweet Tilda card that I've made,  and once again getting lots of inspiration from some amazing challenge blogs.

I've used Tilda with large bow from last years Christmas release and merged her with the Magnolia Wrapped Christmas Presents stamp.  She has been coloured with a mixture of Pro markers and Derwent Water colour pencils.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

I will say though that I haven't made an A5 card in years but the sketch I followed over at Midnight Madness just lent itself to this size.

I would like to enter and thank the following Challenges for their inspiration this week:
