Bee Tilda!

Good afternoon everyone, hope you have had a good day. I finished work this afternoon and realised I had very little time left if I wanted to enter the challenge at Just Magnolia where they are having a birthday blog hop and a sketch challenge. The sketch was drawn by Mina - thanks it's great.

There was an option of making it a thank you card but unfortunately time is against me today - sorry.

I have used Whitewash Core'dinations in a yellow colour for the background card and Black Magic Core'dinations in yellw for the frame. I have sanded them both and distressed the background sheet. 
The other paper is from a Papermania Capsule Collection called Sunshine. 

I have coloured Tilda with Promarkers and used black and silver glitter. I have masked Tilda to get her sitting on the jam/honey jar. The three flowers are punched from Core'dinations card and some left over dotty paper, edged with TimHoltz distress ink - Tea Dye. They are held together with brads I received some time ago. I have had the ribbon in my stash for ages to. 

I shall be entering this card in just a few challenges today

Magnolia Down Under - Masking,

Simon Says - Things with wings,

Passion for Promarkers - In teh Garden (I hope this counts as you get bees in your garden but if not I will understand),

Alphabet Challenge - Y is for Yellow,

Fab 'n' Funky - Get your old stash out, and

Caardvarks - Use Core'dinations cardstock to make a monochrome card.

Hope you like my hasty creation.
