Sky High with Love

Woohoo!!! it's nearly the weekend,  I'm looking forward to meeting up with all my lovely crafting buddies on Saturday for our monthly crop, but that's tomorrow so I'd better contain my excitement and get on with what I'm doing today.

I spent the morning tidying up my craft room and putting back all the items I've been using over the last few days.  Once that was done I managed to make this card off for a few challenges that gave me the inspiration to start it.

I've used this sweet Tilda with heart and my Magnolia basket stamp.  I merged both stamps so that Tilda is sitting inside the basket. I'm quite please with the effect.  She has been coloured with Pro&Flex markers and the clouds behind her were created using Tim Holtz broken sky distress ink.  A full recipe for my card is below this post if you would like to look.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:

TOMIC Challenge: Have a recipe this week of 3 patterned papers, 2 different embellishments and an image.  I know I've used two but I did merge them into one, so I hope it still counts.

Magnolia-licious Challenge:  Have one of my favourite Colour Schemes this fortnight of Brown and Blue

Totally Papercrafts Challenge:  Would like to see Ribbon and/or Bows this week.

Stampin' for the Weekend challenge:  Have a wonderful picture for inspiration. I've chosen the brown and blue colour combo
