Get Well Soon :-)

I made this card following the lovely sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge, they also asked for flowers which had been made or altered in some way. My flower was white which I sprayed with green and orange glimmer mist. The button was a clear SU one which i coloured with pink alcohol ink.

The Tilda image was the first one I bought and she is still one of my faves :-) I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dungaree's with a bit of leftover paper in my bits box.The design on the dungarees was sparkled with copics glitter pens ( love them !)

The inner nestie shape was coloured with pearlescent chalks then cuttlebugged in a swirl folder, then inked around the edges with turquoise pigment ink, then embossed with sparkle and layered onto orange and black circles.

The papers are a mix of basic grey and doodlebug.
The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set.
The corners were made with papermania sticky shapes and sprinkled with orange glitter. I think thats all,,,, :-)

I am also entering this into the Just Magnolia Challenge whose theme this week is paper piecing. The One Stop Craft Challenge whose theme is sparkle, well I have used sparkle emboss and glitter and the Cupcake Craft Challenge who have a colour challenge of pink / turquoise / orange and have asked for a card for a child. I made this for a friend's little girl.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I left something for you on my blog, I know you already have one, but I love the fact that you card about animals, and thought you should have another.
