Just Magnolia meets Crafty Angels

Good morning!! Brrrr it's a cold one today. My Tilda is dressed perfectly for this weather ;)

This week on Just Magnolia there is a wonderful sketch by Mina to follow, while on Crafty Angels the challenge was set by ME this week and I chose Buttons & Bling!!

I used this ever so sweet Tilda and coloured her using distress inks. I gave her  a little highlighting on her cheeks with an opaque white gel pen.  Then I cut around her legs and used the circles nesties to make her 'sit' on the end of the circle. I distressed the background very lightly with Broken China and then added my little bling hearts, and a bow to make the circle look like a tag.. I think it worked, lol! I threaded the large buttons with scrappers floss, love that stuff! I finished off the card by adding more bling around the edges, as you can never have enough sparkle ;)

Have a wonderful Monday!!
TFL :)
