Friday Sketchers #116 & Stampin for the Weekend #45

Hi girls, great to have you visit my blog. I hope you like what you find. I have been struggling to find time for my blog hopping and comment leaving this week with the family here. I think I have just about caught up. If I have inadvertently missed you I will be there soon.
I made this card for two challenges. Friday Sketchers provided the fantastic sketch and Stampin for the Weekend had the theme of "Anything goes". I have inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Bicycle" and coloured her using my Copics. I have done her in green shades because I very rarely do green and I fancied a change. The papers are Lush Floral paper and the reverse sides of two more My Mind's Eye papers. I used two shades of green Bazzil Bling as mounts to give a bit of definition. The embellishments are cut from textured cream card using a Marianne Design Creatable. The corners are cut using a Woodware Craft punch. Everything else is from my stash. I hope you like this card and have time to leave me a comment telling me what you think. I love to read your views - I find them so helpful.
Enjoy your day and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
