1 Card, 2 Challenges

Hi everybody, I hope you are all enjoying your sunday, only one card done from me today, I have run around like a blue wotsit trying to get everything sorted for school tomoz, yes school YIPPEE! the kids are driving each other mad :O) and me lol

So I combined challenges, Hope thats ok, understand if it not, They are the Magnolia meets Stampavie Challenge - "feel the sketch", and The Colour Create Challenge - "pink & grey" the dt cards on both challenges are GORGEOUS!

I had a Pink and Grey bedroom as a child, I loved it, my nan brought me a grey and pink cabin bed, I was in my element with that room, My teenage years went with yellow and blue lol.

I have used a Tilda that I havent used for ages, coloured her with promarkers,and mounted her with 3d foam onto the panel. I doodled around the edge as it looked bare, and had to hand write the greeting, every time I say Ooh La La I break into the song by The Fugees,ugh I hate my writing on cards. The lace is pink, and I added some grey ribbon over the top of it. The grey paper is Basic Grey, and the pink Hotp.I wanted to show you a close up of the flower, thats nothing special, but the pin is, its one Tina sent me, isnt it just gorgeous!


Thanks for stopping by and looking, enjoy the rest of your day.xxx

Ooo, what a stunner, hun! My daughter's school has an inset day tomorrow, but I'm looking forward to having a go at this sketch on Tuesday when all is quiet! I love the colouring of Tilda - she looks tres chic with black hair (note to self - must try this!) - and pink and grey is always a winning combo in my books! I was gonna ask you where you got your ooh la la stamp from, until I read you'd written it! What are you talking about - your handwriting is awesome!
