A Tilda Card

My Mojo seems to have done a runner last night I went upstairs with the intention of cracking on with some DT projects that need to be done and just couldn't get into any of them so decided to try something different and dug this Tilda stamped image out of my drawer and started coloring , I have as usual used promarkers to colour her. I have followed the sketch it Friday Sketchers, the papers are from the Pink Petticoat stack that came free with a magazine this month, all the cardstock is coredinations, the edges have all been distressed. I have used my woodware border punch and my new Sew easy tool on this card which I have to say is very easy to use only problem was I didn't think about what I was doing with the corners so they didn't meet up properly, just adds to its charm don't you think lol. The charm, ribbon, pearls and flowers are all from my stash. Right I best go and have another stab at those DT projects otherwise I will be rushing around all week which won't be a good moveas the kids are on Half Term all week and hubby is working night shifts all week so I get the job of trying to keep them quite any one got some gags going spare!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Distress
Friday Sketchers - Sketch
Creative Craft World - Square card
Bearly Mine Challenge - Ribbon & Pearls
Top Tip Tuesday - All Stitched Up
