Summer Flower Tilda

Hi my lovelies, I've made a card today just for fun. I was at work for twelve long hours yesterday day and I was itching to get this card made. The kids go back to school on Tuesday and they need some school shoes, I've left it until the end of the holidays as they both seem to grow overnight. I actually bought William a new pair of shoes about six weeks before the end of last term, they wouldn't even go on his feet on Friday and there was me thinking that they'd fit him for a few weeks and I'd be able to stagger buying their shoes.

I've coloured Summer Flower Tilda with my distress markers, and added sparkle with Glamour Dust. Surprisingly I've used Maja Design papers again, I can't get enough of them, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz Distresser Tool and then machine sewn them with Top Stitch Thread.

The roses are from WOC and I've added sparkle with Stickles. I've sewn 10 mm White Tiny Pom Pom Trim on the smaller square and stuck Pink Looped Organza Trim behind Tilda. I've also stuck on a few 5 mm Adhesive Pearls.

Once again my arty view, what you can't see is that Grace managed to get her elbow in the picture, she's my little shadow. I had to pop in work the other day and as I went down the lab I was told that they looked like my little penguins following me, I thought that was a great description.

I've made this card for the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - Pretty In Pink
Deep Ocean Challenge - Things With Wings
In The Pink - Things With Wings
Sketch Saturday - Week #223
Simply Magnolia - Pink, White, Green and/or Blue
MDUC - Bingo, I've gone for 'Flowers, Green and Sewing'

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thank you for visiting me. I'm off to colour some more images in whilst we watch Megamind and then Men in Black II.
