just add glitter...

Good morning everyone, just Im still not here but am...well you know what I mean dont you...todays card is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and this week was my turn to host and I chose the theme of Glitter but of course Im not there to host so the fab Bev is doing it for me, thanks Bev...this fantastic Tilda reminds me of my Daughter when she was small, she used to wander round picking up daisies and hiding them behind her back then presenting them to me with 'A slouwer a Mammy', I will remember that little lisping voice and saying forever...so I always love colouring this little beauty, shes called Secretive Tilda and shes on sale atm at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, a massive 25% off, well she is when I typed this so hope she still is when it goes live, did you know that the new the Winner takes it all Magnolias are also on Bunny Zoe's now too...I coloured Tilda with distress inks and added some glitter to her flowers, I really didnt have any glittered paper for her so used these lush K&Co Julianne paper pad papers and glittered the leaves on it
this is a lush paper pad and I use it loads...I added a glittery ribbon and a sentiment from my stash and finished with one of the lush new Prima Audrey Rose-Snow flowers...I know its rare for me but I love the way this card turned out for a change and I do love love love colouring grey hair...Im entering this for the Feeling the Blue challenge over at CES challenge...when you have time please pop on over to Just Magnolia and see what the rest of our amazing team came up with for my Glitter challenge...have a wonderful sunny day everyone
