Tilda with Wheelbarrow + Challenges

Good Morning my Dears,  I hope you are all having a nice weekend, I'm not working this time so I'm going to try and tidy up my craft room (it's in an awful mess)  I'm not a tidy crafter, every surface has something on it, in fact I spend more time shuffling it all  around to find things I need.  I went out yesterday and bought some new storage accordion folders for my mountain of papers. I'll let you see the pictures when I've finished, but it's gonna take a while.

I've made this card for a few challenges using sweet Tilda with butterfly and the wheelbarrow stamp.  I'm just loving this masking malarkey. Don't know why I was so petrified of doing it in the first place. lol.  I've popped the full recipe for the card at the bottom of this post. So without further ado here are the challenges that inspired this card.

Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge:  Would like to see stitching this week, real or faux, I've gone for real stitching.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge:  Have an anything goes this week with the option of Lace.  My lace behind my flowers were cut out from a length of daisy lace.
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: Would like to see Butterfly's this week.
By The Cute & Girly Challenge: Would like to see things with Wings.
Craft Your Passion Challenge:  Would like to see a Just for You project this week.

Moving Along with the Times Challenge: Would like to see your favourite things.  I love my Magnolia's, flowers, lace, oh boy! where do I stop.
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge:  Would like to see Fun in the Sun this Month.  Zoe is also looking for a couple of new DT members so pop on over and have a shot, you gotta try haven't you.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
