Sketch Saturday Challenge # 84

Greetings again friends... I just loved the challenge set out by Sketch Saturday and was itching to make a card.  Here is my entry, I hope you like it as much as I do. 

The base of my card is a gorgeous shimmery bronze colour which was left over from the wedding invitations I made.  The cream is a little bit thinner, but also a shimmer paper. The ribbon is a fave of mine, bronzy organza with white daisies from Merrypak.  I coloured my Tilda in with Faber Castell Watercolour Pencils this time. I first stamped some grass onto my oval nestie and once dry, coloured it in with 2 different colour greens. I then took some green and blue chalk and coloured in the rest of the nestie to give one the impression that Tilda is outdoors. The log is from the Tilda range, I glued that onto the nestie and then raised Tilda onto the log using sticky foam tape. Further embellished with some pearls, chipboard buttons and a lovely lilac butterfly.

All comments are appreciated... whilst browsing through my Google Reader, I notice things are getting back to normal and everyone is hectically busy crafting... I'll be visiting you soon.  Take care, Sharon
