now we are 7

Good morning to you! It's been a while since I was here. I've started many projects, but not managed to finish any until now. Things have been a bit busy.

Today at Crafts 4 Eternity, we have a sketch for you.

So, what better way than to come back with a Magnolia card.

I wanted to make this A5 size, so I struggled a bit with trying to fit in with the sketch, having just coloured up quite a large Tilda and not thinking about the final design! So, I have used a little artistic licence to squish it all in and hope the challenge police aren't after me.

Papers: My Mind's Eye ~ The Sweetest Thing.
Bling: Webster's Pages
Butterfly: Prima

I've got an extra little strip going down the right hand side, which isn't part of the sketch. This is because I cut the flowery paper down to size, but I had meant to cut a different paper! Rather than throw it away, I decided to cover up the join!

Image: Tilda with Hawaiian Flower, coloured with copics.

And look! The sun is shining! I have shadow on my card. Happy days :)

Thank you for looking.

I can't wait to see how you interpret the sketch.

Tilda is beautifully colored, I don't know how to color pleats like this, so I often end up paper piecing dresses. But your coloring is wonderful, the DP and pearls are beautiful too!
