Tilda Birthday

Hi everyone, hope all is well in blogland. My mojo is a bit like a yoyo at the moment there one minute and gone the next!!! So I am making the most of it with this card, I hope you like it.
I have used the sketch at Magnolia Stamp Lovers shown below - as you know since starting my blog in July 09 I have come to love Magnolia stamps especially Tilda and here she is. Just purchased and I have used her on Birthday card even though she is a Christmas image Christmas Party Tilda, which means I have met the challenge at Magnolia Down Under - stamp with another use.

I coloured with water colour pencils and then mounted her on a scrap of paper which I distressed to within an inch of its life!!! - welll I tried anyway - scissors and ink and I am happy with the result.

In this picture you can see that I have had a go at the Just Magnolia Challenge which is Paper pleating - not sure about this though, may have to try again!!! The sentiment was from a Buzzcraft set of clear stamps called Fairy Doodles, and distressed again.

I used a rose I won in a candy win from Martine, and I have added some glitter - hope you can see it.
the other  papers are from Funky fairys and Core'dinations - this has been sanded and scissored around the edges!!!

I will also enter this card in the following challenges :-

The Pink Elephant - Birthday,

The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Distressing,

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Going Girly,

Stamp Scrap and Doodle - Celebration,

Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday,

Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog - Distressing

Simon Says - Shabby Chic,

Now my 5 year old is having a mega tantrum because I put baked beans on her plate!!!! Will finish properly later!!
