I decided to make a second Australian Tilda Card

Hello All You Crafty People Out There, I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend! I am, as its given me the opportunity to make another card!

I decided to use another of the Australian Collection for this card, its called Kangaroo Tilda and I have coloured her and joey, with copics and added a little sakura sparkle to her dress.

I am loving this colour core card, it distresses beautifully and co-ordinates with the lovely distressed Country Cottage papers from Whimsy and I have used the same paper, for the inside of the card too.  I did use a blue patterned paper on the front too, although its not too obvious, in the photos lol!

You can see one of my hand made pins above in the florals, which are all from either wild orchid, the ribbon girl or live and love crafts, I used 2 floral swirley die cuts at the top and bottom of the florals to add interest & extend them a little. Live and love crafts cluny lace and bark hearts are both so yummy, that I had to use them with this card! The two cute flowers buttons are from the hobby house and all the links can be found in my side bar, I threaded and distressed the buttons with DI.

The Magnolia So Wrapped Up Tag, Is Kraft Card and the sentiment is from LOTV and reads:
"Tommorrow Hold Many Wonderful Things" and I have used shabby seam binding in two colours, stitched pearl string in place and added a tiny butterfly charm for the finishing touch.

Thankyou for dropping by my little blog, enjoy the rest of the bank holiday.
