Good Morning, it is a bright and cheery day outside. If you close your eyes you can almost imagine that you are on a beach somewhere away from all this cold and snow. I want to show you a bright a cheery card that I have created using the new sketch over at Stamptacular Sunday.

I received this Tilda stamp as part of my winter stamp kit from Magnolia. I love this kit as it is so versatile and there are many uses for these stamps. This is the first one that has made it onto a card but there will be many more to come. Tilda has been coloured using Copics and I have added a touch of stickles to give her crown some sparkle. As the Basic Grey challenges have now resumed with the challenge to use dots and spots, I have paired up Tilda with the black spotted paper which really made her pop. I believe that the paper was from the Kyoshi line. The pink paper comes from my stash. The card has been embellished with just a few flowers and a simple sentiment to finish it off.

Be sure to pop by both of these challenges and see the awesome inspiration that the DTs have created. I hope that you are all having a great weekend. Be sure to come back tomorrow as I will have another  card to show.
