Tilda Ladybug Love......


Good morning everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far! Well I sat down to make a card at the end of the week and found my mojo had disappeared big time! I just couldn't muster anything so I turned on my PC and decided to have a good old blog surf..... well it wasn't long before I stumbled across Jane's fantastic tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Tutorial blog to make a punched screen card. And so this card was born and I really enjoyed creating it.... the effect is really pretty and feminine!


I used this sweet Ladybug Tilda for my card and coloured her with Poly pencils and some Stickles. She is definitely up there with my fave Tildas I think.... what a cutie!!


The design paper is a new range from Papermania called Henbury Lane and is a gorgeous collection of pinks, lilacs and blues. I used various punches and dies to create the punched screen and added a couple of Prima flowers and a Tim Holtz ticket to finish.

Thank you so much for sharing your ideas Jane and for kickstarting my mojo in the process ;o)

I'm entering my card into the following challenges today:

My Time To Craft - Xtra Special

Sentimental Sundays - Summer

Stampavie and More - Dots

Magnolia Down Under - Swirly Swirls

Thanks for stopping by today......

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
