Summer Flower Tilda

Happy Monday to Everyone.  Its a Public Holiday here and as usual the weather is not to good.  It's a lovely excuse for me to do more craft - not that I need an excuse. 

Today's card features the lovely Summer Flower Tilda Stamp.  I have used some Tilda Stamps in the past but recently the designs appear to have become much softer and much more cute.  So I thought I would buy some stamps and join in the fun.

This style of card is called a Cross Over Card but I would call it a Pocket Card.  There are lots of tutorial available for this card type.

List of Materials used for this card :o)

2 sheets quality 12 x 12 Cardstock, cut to size and edged with blue ink.

Wonderful Digital Papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Spring Delights, backing paper from my stash.

The image is Summer Flower Tilda, coloured mostly with Flexmarker pens and sprinkled with glitter.

Die cut butterfly panel.  Heart Dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Flower Die from Magnolia.  Edge punch from Martha Stewart.  Pink Glitter Butterflies from Kanban.

Rose from my stash.  Ribbon and pink pearl heart pins from The Ribbon Girl.  Gem Flourish Corners from my stash. 

I would like to enter this sweet little card into the following Challenges :o)

A closer view of this delicious little image showing colouring, shading and glitter.  Cut out using a Cheery Lynn Heart Die and mounted on a heart die and showing details of backing papers.

Thank you so much for reading this post.  I hope you like my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
