you inspire me

I may be too late to enter this challenge, but no winner has been announced yet and I've slaved over this all evening (lol), so I am going to enter it anyway!

When I first saw this sketch over at One Stop Craft Challenge I thought it would be too fussy for the sort of work I am doing at the moment. Then this evening, when I was hunting around for a sketch, I came across it again and knew immediately, that it was perfect for what I now wanted to do! Isn't it funny how that happens. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed putting it all together, so thank you Sharon for the sketch!!

Oh and by the way, I blog hop all the time and am inspired everywhere I go, so this card is for all of you ~ thank you for the inspiration.

As in my previous posting, once again all papers are from We R Memory Keepers ~ Hoopla range, as is the 'You inspire me' chipboard embellishment. I can't tell you exactly which papers from the range I used ~ if you saw the state of my craft room right now, I am sure you will understand!!


I layered each of the dp onto cream cardstock, having first distressed the edges of all layers. For the banding across the centre (and the ribbon in the chipboard tag), I used sheer gold ribbon from my stash and a Bazzill ~ Just the edge cardstock strip.
The image is Magnolia ~ Tilda with Pencils. This is an old Tilda but new for me. Isn't she darling?
I coloured her up with my copics.
All flowers are by Prima and brads are an assortment from my stash.
Thank you for looking, all comments are very much appreciated.
