Summertime tilda card!

I am actually really quite happy with this card for once!
I've had these wooden adhesive 'bugs' for what seems like forever but they're really hard to actually use on cards without it looking really forced!

Here's an up close of the tilda

The Creative Card Crew challenge is "Pretty flowers", I do love these flowers! It was hard to part with them, lol!

The challenge on Whimsy Stamps this week is "Summer Fun". This card totally reminds me of summertime and I love how with the aperture, I've managed to get tilda to look like she's running right out of the card!

Just Magnolia has a challenge of "Animals and Insects"!

Tilda is coloured with twinkling h2os. The dots on her dress I highlighted with Sakura Glaze blue pen and did the same on her shoe buckle!
The tulips are felt ones I bought in John Lewis last year.
I cut 3 out which I'd drawn onto card (slightly smaller versions of the felt ones). Sprinkled their 'petal' part with doodlebug glitter and coloured their leaves and stalks with a sakura glaze pen in green. I then stuck these on the blue gingham and put tilda over the top of them, to try and give more of an impression that they're in the distance. Same with the small lady bird on the gingham and the big one on the felt tulip!
Sentiment is from the penny black "birthday wishes" set.
Flower is made if 3 different sized prima flowers.
Papers, pearl, insects and ribbons are from my stash.

Hope you like it! xxxx
