Flower Or Cabbage

It's that time of the week again so it must be time for the new
This weeks theme chosen by Francesca is a sketch.

We have 3 sponsors this week they are

Whimsy Stamps with 5 digi's of your choice 

That's a real incentive to have a go and enter your card cause you never know .

For my card this week I have chosen to do a Magnolia Tilda again. From the title of this entry I think she is supposed to be holding a flower but I think it looks a bit like a cabbage. Sorry. The colour was influenced by a piece of lacy material, which I brought from the NEC in March, which is browns and blue's in colour. The orange background paper just seemed to show the colour up perfectly so that was What I went with and coloured her to match with Tria pens.

I have put a length of blue ribbon and cream lace behind the image, a small doily distressed with Broken China and added some matching flowers and some punched out leaves in the top left corner. I have put a ribbon bow in the bottom left and a stamped and embossed birthday message in the bottom right. Not a usual colour combination but I think it looks ok.
