Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge and Cute Card Thursday


Here are my entries for the ATC challenge over at Tilda and Friends and my card for Cute Card Thursday using my ATC as a topper! Over at Tilda and Friends, you can now use any cute image stamp (so long as the image isn't too life-like, all the details are on the challenge blog!) The theme is open this week, so all you have to do is create a cute ATC! I chose Tilda because I had this image to hand of Baking Tilda and I just had to use her! I coloured her with Pro Markers and added some flowers and some wire. I then used the ATC as a topper to make my card for Cute Card Thursday where the theme is 'Pretty in Pink'. I went for vintage muted pinks rather than bright pinks for this card. Whilst blog hopping I've noticed vintage coming back again, so I tried to get this look with the K&Co papers, lace and flowers (thanks Jill!) The brown paper behind Tilda is from a gorgeous paper pad I bought last week and fell in love with!
Typical today because I had to go out to pay my credit card bill and got drenched in the rain! That will teach me for spending so much money lol!

Love Becky xx

Such a lovely card Becky, so nicely coloured and structured. Sad to hear about the weather...in Perth down under its winter but we've had no rain for weeks and its sunny and about 18-20 degrees each day. Keep well Kylie
