Another 3 in 1!

Whoo! Check me out 3 posts in 3 days! I'm not sure what to make of this one though. I kind of like it, but I don't think it fits the image. It needs to be a lot more summery! This is the first chance I've had to ink up this summer Tilda & as everyone is moving on to the new Autumn images I had to get her done quick! I can't keep up with Blogland, it moves too quick, LOL!! I've made a pact with myself however, after September I will be making at least one Xmas card a week. It will take some discipline, but I have to do it! Anyway onto this card. I've used the fab sketch at Just Magnolia this week. I've not entered that for ages & it's one of my faves. The colour scheme fits with the challenge at Creative Inspirations, which is blue & brown. Love that combo. Finally Secret Crafters want to see hearts & flowers on your cards.
As you can see I've been playing with my distressing tool again. I could set up in production with my own version of flower soft soon if I kept all the 'fluff' that comes off the card, after I've shaved it, LOL! I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss some of the cardstock with the paisley design. The flowers I created with my retro punch along with some paper flowers the amazingly generous (Bizzy) Bec sent me. They are great quality. Much better than you get in Hobbycraft. Thanks Bec!
Well I'm off to bed now after I've linked this card. The only problem with entering so many challenges is that always takes me forever to do all the links. There has to be a quicker way. You can guarantee I will make a mistake on at least one! 'Message deleted by sender', that's usually me. Apologies in advance if I do it again!!
Have a great week!
