Creative Inspirations & Truly Scrumptious #49

Hi girls. What a miserable day we had yesterday - it rained all day and was barely above freezing point. Spring can't come quickly enough for me. Anyway enough moaning, it's good of you to drop in on my blog. I just hope all is well with you and that you enjoy your visit here. It would be great to think that you might find something that would inspire you in your own crafting.
My card today was made for two challenges. Creative Inspirations had a theme of "Buttons and Bows" and Truly Scrumptious wanted "Brown, green & pink". The image is "Sweet Tilda " by Magnolia and she is coloured using a mix of Copics and Polychromos Pencils. I don't know the name or make of the papers - I found them in my stash drawer but I used Bazzil as a mount.
The flowers and stamens are by Wild Orchid and the ribbons and buttons are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and it would be really appreciated if you had any opinion on it, good or bad, if you left a comment. I find it really helpful to know what you think.
Have a great day, stay safe and healthy.
