Sunday Sketch & Stamp DT Card

Morning All! I can't believe that another fortnight has passed and it's time again for a new challenge over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp. This time around, Mira has come up with a really fab sketch for us all to work with - here's my card:

I covered my card blank with purple Bazzill Basics card and then used Cosmo Cricket 'Pixielicious' papers - one of the circles, I used my cuttlebug and a marianne designs doily die. The stamp is Magnolia Tilda and I'm pretty sure it's called 'Happy Tilda' and is from one of the most recent releases - I like this one because it's one of the only ones I've seen with a different 'face'. I've watercoloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks. The velvet ribbon is Papermania boutique, I've used a Craftwork Cards sentiment, gems from my stash and the flowers are mainly from Wild Orchid Crafts, with a couple of Hobbycraft ones thrown in!
I actually used Dawny P's (aka Pink Piggy!) blog for inspiration on the flower placement - I don't know why but I always have trouble with this type of flower. I don't have any problem with punched or die cut flowers but these ones, well, they just befuddle me (think I made that word up but I like it!) If you've never visited Dawn's blog, it's definitely worth a trip cos she makes some gorge cards and is v talented - you can find it here.
I hope you'll hop over and have a look at the other DT cards and if you've got any spare time at this time of year, take part in the challenge.
I'm planning some 'Birthday Blog Candy' in the next couple of weeks (it's my birthday on 11th December), so spread the word as it'll be open to followers only. I've never had candy on my blog before so if any of you 'old hands' want to give me any words of wisdom on the best way to work it, I'd be very grateful! I'll be back later with some more cards I've been working on. TTFN - have a happy Sunday!


  1. Hi Marie, this is a gorgeous card hun - love the colours. In respect of the candy, I did a Mr Linky link, its free and easy to use and people can just add their names instead of having to leave comments, etc. Hugs, Claire x

  2. What an unusual colour combo... love Tilda! The sentiment is so sweet and the roses and rose buds very pretty.
