Sunny Summer Days

Good Morning my dears,  It's another lovely sunny day here,  which makes things so much nicer.  I want to post this fairly quickly because my sweet Grandchildren are coming down to spend the day with us and because it's so nice I think we'll have a BBQ in the garden.

Anyway onto my card.  I've used Tilda with butterfly as my image, isn't she the cutest image, mind you I'm quite biased cause I love my Tilda's.  I've coloured her with Pro Markers and Derwent Water colour pencils.  Used the adorable sketch from Just Magnolia that Jane created for us.  I'll post the full recipe for my card below this post.  In the meantime I would like to enter the following Challenges.
