Here's One I Made Earlier!

I did tell you I would be back with a card :)

Thankfully I have a few cards that I'd made before I started with this neck/shoulder problem, and this one was for the recent birthday of the lovely and uber talented Mandy.

Because it was for Mandy then the image had to be a Tilda, and I really wanted to use a special one that I'd been searching for, with very many thanks to Kees and Astrid at Creashop Duymelot for getting this for me...you're the best ♥


She's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers (made a bugger of her hair but by then I'd spent so long colouring the rest of her that I was running out of time to make another card)

I was desperate to use these gorgeous papers from the Maja Design Vintage Spring pad, I love lilac!
A Doo Hickey heart flourish, MFT butterflies, punched flowers and a sentiment from PTI.

Have a fun and fab day :)
Thanks for looking.
Love

  4. It looks fine to me & I love the way you've coloured the flower-centre yellow which chimes in with your inking of the flourish edges. Absolutely gorgeous colour combination & I love the way you used the stripy pattern for the flower.
    Take care of yourself & I do hope you're soon very much more comfortable & on the road to recovery.
