The Next level and Cute Card Thursday Challenges :-)

I made this card following the fabulous sketch on The Next Level Challenge :-)

The base card is papermania double sided card that I distressed using a stitch cutter ( unpicker) and inked with shabby shutters and old linen distress inks. The Tilda image was coloured with copics and 3D'd onto the panel of card that I had also coloured with shabby shutters ink and stamped with a PB fantasy tree in brilliance ink.This was layered onto some brown/green coredinations. The flowers are Prima ones and the velvet brads are papermania that I also inked with shabby shutters. The gorgeous ribbon was in Steph's give away that I won :-) Thanks Steph :-)

I cut 2 tags out on my cricut, one in the coredinations and the other in the papermania card. I also inked the tag with shabby shutters and stamped the sentiment and the bird with stamps in the Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set, this is a fabulous sentiment set. I use it all the time !!

I am also entering this into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge whose theme is 'Tag you're it '

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