Happy Tilda...

Hi all. What have you been up to today? I've had my Girls home from school today...teachers on strike! My eldest son was in school though and has been on a Shakespeare trip to Stratford Upon Avon. So Me, the girls and little man paid my elderly Grandad a visit. He had a bad stroke a few weeks ago and today is his Birthday. 
Enough of my waffle, and on to my card. I actually made this a few weeks ago whilst messing about with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paints. I painted several colours thickly onto Kraft card, and once dry, punched out some butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch. I highlighted some of them with Distress Stickles.
Other ingredients;
Happy Tilda rubber stamp,
Copics,
Scraps of DCWV and Pink Petticoat papers,
Making Memories metal sentiment (highlighted with brown Copic),
EK Success scalloped border punch,
Lace,
Brads,
Pom pom trim

Hope you like? It's late now....so a quick mooch around your blogs before bed.
A few challenges for this one;

Divas By Design - die cuts/punches
Flutter By Wednesday's - butterfly, fairy, angel
Scrapbook Sisters - summer fun
Truly Scrumptious - things with wings

Many thanks for looking!
Jenny xx

Beautiful card Jenny. I love the browns with a hint of peach, and the butterflies are so pretty.

I hope your Grandad makes a full and speedy recovery and Happy Birthday to him too.
