Tilda on the Loose...

Happy Saturday everyone... I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.  Last night I made this card for the challenge over at Just Magnolia, which is a Sketch Challenge.  I hope you like it.

Kendall asked me to make this card for a colleague who is leaving their company and she particularly wanted me to use Tilda on the Loose.  I've tried using my new learnt technique on her dress and shoes, but I somehow think I've still got a lot of practising to do.  But, that's what's so nice about this hobby... you're never too old to learn new tricks and I'm learning something new each day...  Thank you so much for the lovely compliments I receive, they are so very much appreciated.  YOU inspire me to progress to the next level...

April Sketch at Just Magnolia

Here's my entry for the challenge.  You will notice that I've flipped the sketch.  This was such an easy one to work with. I will definitely be using it again.  I do most of my crafting and photographing at night, so it was very different taking a pic in the natural light for a change. I just popped the card onto my craft table and clicked away...

The patterned paper is from a local company Wilson and MacLaghan (I just love their paper packs), purchased from Merrypak.  I got the sentiment from them too.  The plain coloured cardstock was purchased from the Scrapbook shop in Bellville.  Our gorgeous Tilda on the Loose is from the Bon Voyage collection and was purchased from 7 Kids College Fund, as well as the Magnolia Sign which is from the Chasing Butterflies collection of stamps.

The stunning card candy and the white-shaped card was a purchase from Crafty Emma's Store, as well as the tiny heart-shaped lilac pearl.  I can't remember where I purchased the lovely organiza ribbon from, but it's so soft and pretty.  Bought some more ribbon today, which I'll be sharing on other cards later this weekend.
That's it for now friends.  Thank you for popping by, your visit really makes my day. All comments are most appreciated.  Now I'm off to do some hopping of my own to return the favour.

Hugs Sharon x

Hi my sweet friend,

this is such a gorgeous card, I just love how you've colored the dress. Have you learned this technique with a tutorial? If so would you send me the link. Your paper choice is always so gorgeous and then those sweet little flowers.
The event was great and there wasn't any money left over ;-)

Enjoy the Easter weekend xxx
