Cherry Blossom

I thought I would show you this picture of the gorgeous tree in our front garden before it was hit by the rain. This gave me the inspiration for my next card which I think will go into the following challenges
Creative Card Crew - April Showers bring May Flowers
Just Magnolia - A sketch by Bev (thanks Bev, my sort of sketch again)
Crafty Catz - Spots , which there are lots of if you look closely!!

This lovely Magnolia image, I received in a RAK from Vicky over at Kips Cards, check out her work it is fab!! As Tilda is a bee, this paper reminded me of honeycomb and of course every bee needs flowers!! So here it is.

I have no idea what this little Tilda is called, but she is so cute.
Sentiment is Cuddley Buddley
Coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch pens, and no I haven't used the blender pen on her tummy or hair, really pleased with myself there, lol!!
DP is Basic Grey Lemonade again, I just love it!!
Nestibilities Ovals and Scalloped Ovals
Martha Stewart Daisy and Branch Punches
Nellie Large Flower, Small Flower and Stamen punches
Crystal Glamour Dust
Pearl Glimmer Mist
Card, Ribbon and Flat Pearls from Stash

Hope you like her,

Hugs Jo x

    Totally stunning job here Jo, you have coloured Tilda to perfection, beautiful job.
    As for the tree, yes its beautiful, my neighbour has several that I love to look at but hate to clean up the mess after the flowers fall from the tree, they are so slippy too....
