Friday Sketchers #91 & Just Magnolia Week # 48

Hi girls. A warm welcome to my little blog where I hope you will find something to bring a smile or even inspire you in your own crafting. The sun continues to shine although it's barely above freezing point but hey, it looks so much more pleasant looking out. A few of my regular visitors have been away for a while for varying reasons but I pleased to see that some are back again in blogland. You will know who you are and it's fantastic to have you back.
I made this card to enter two challenges. Friday Sketchers gave us a fabulous sketch to follow and Just Magnolia had a theme of "Birthdays". I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda in Dalcarlia Coat", one of my old favourites, and coloured her with my Copics. The papers are an unknown lilac gingham and a Kanban, "Spring Leaves - Pink (small)" that I bought in Stampaholics in Perth. This is a yummy thick paper, almost as thick as card, and the flowers are all edged in silver - beautiful to work with. I also used lilac Bazzil Bling that I put through my Sizzix in a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The embellishments are all from my stash.
I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it. It would be great if you could spare time to leave me a comment to let me know what you like or dislike about it. I really enjoy reading what you have to say and appreciate you making the effort.
I will no doubt be visiting you blog and look forward to seeing what you have made today and catch up with the gossip. Have a great day and stay safe.
Hugs,
