Claudia's Sketch & Cute Card Thursday

Claudia has posted a fabulous sketch on her blog and had invited everyone to follow it to create a card. You can see all the details on her blog: Pretty Pressings. I chose one of my favorite Magnolia stamps and my favorite color combo. This is a great sketch and it challenged me to add more layers than I usually do. I colored Tilda with Distress Inks and the background behind her I did with Twinkling H20s. This gives it a soft shimmer. The button didn't quite match my papers so I just stippled on some Blue Bayou ink to make it match a little better. The little charm hanging from the button is a dragonfly. I am also going to enter this in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is to use "soft furnishings" on your card. Yes, I too was a little confused but if you read their instructions it becomes clearer! I am considering the ribbon and the button as my "soft furnishings" So again, thanks for stopping by and thanks also to you lovely ladies who always leave such kind comments - you really do make my day!
