ROP DT- Ladybug Tilda turns Basic Grey!

... hehe.. in more ways than one!!

First because when creating this card I used Basic Grey papers (minus the black & white large polka dotted one).. secondly because I used greys and blacks a lot when colouring her.. so she turned out Basic Grey!! And third, because I used Basic Grey's Challenge Sketch. sorry, I couldn't help it! :)

I hope you like it. This is a different card from my "usual" colour combos.. but it was fun. This Tilda is a new stamp I was given, (thank you Sonja sweetie!!) I just love Magnolias, so I was jumping up and down when I was sent three stamps by a dear friend of mine! I am thoroughly blessed. xx

I didn't add a lot of embellies, as the sketch and papers are busy enough; but I did add a shower of flowers. Ribbon is from Quixotic Paperie,pearl hearts are from my stash. Rhinestones are basic Grey as well, red mini roses are from Craft time, large white flower is Magnolia.. so lush!! Sentiment is Stampin ' Up.

This is how I decorated the inside. I used a card making kit, it had these colours, and I saw it was fitting to decorate the inside in a retro way. What do you think of my Ladybug Maggie? I will be entering this card for Magnolia Down Under Challenges as well, as the theme is Thank you card this week.

I would be so happy to hear from you. Thank you for coming to visit me today. Have a lovely week!


Thanks for looking
