Sunshine on a rainy day!

Good Morning...

Happy to be back in the world of crafty bloggin' today so I can avoid looking at or thinking about some pretty awful, extremely wet and windy weather!  (Can still hear it needs turning up I think)!

Today's card is Magnolia's 'Ribbon Tilda' (this is my first ever Tilda), stamped and then coloured with copic markers.  I have used some Kraft card and papers from Pion to mount the image.  I have then added lace, cheesecloth, twine and flowers from The Ribbon Girl along with some other embellishments and pearls from my trinket box.  

Finally, (and this is another first for me), I have dotted the card with some texture paste, (that felt weird)!!  I am a bit of a straight lines and all that, so daubing 'goo' all over a finished card went well against the grain!  I have to say though I am happy with the end result!
