Various Challenges and An Award


Hi girls. Welcome to my blog, I'm so glad you found time to visit. I hope all is well in your world. I had another decent day yesterday so I managed to get another card made.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Truly Scrumptious where mandy gave us a fabulous Sketch,
Simon Says.... No Cook Recipe (1 image, 2 papers and 3 kinds of embellishment),
Just Magnolia's Monthly Challenge where "Anything Goes"
I inked up "Tilda with Parasol" and coloured her using Copics. I am afraid that I don't know the names of the papers and I used card as a mount. The embellishments are Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon from my stash and Stickles and glitter.
I really hope you like this card and would love to read any comments I am fortunate enough for you to leave for me. have a great day, enjoy your crafting and above all stay safe and healthy.
