Oh what a beautiful day!!

Talk about the weather - today as a corker of an autumnal day, sunny and warm.  AND tomorrow is apparently going to be better!!

I made a card this afternoon for several challenges: Aud Sentiments wants a child's card, the Lollipop Ladies #17 are working with lovely pastel macaroons + gloss, and the Sweet Stop  #SSS102 sketch challenge looked interesting. So, as I have just purchased my very first Magnolia Tilda stamp (Hello Butterfly) I combined them to create this!

I tried to match the macaroon colours, and the gloss is on the Annabelle sparklers and the sentiment banner, which are from WMS.  The images is coloured with Copics, and the background papers are from the Cosmo Cricket set DeLovely. The card is folded Bazzil, and the flower is Prima, while the ribbon and ribbon slide (SU, I think) were stash. I cut the edge on the SU Regal Rose mount card with a Martha Stewart punch.

I cut out Tilda using the CB and an oval scallop nestbility. Outside my green ink looks like the wrong green, but inside it looked OK  Why does that happen!! It is SU Wild Wasabi. The gloss on the banner was still wet so I had to lay the card onto the outside table, rather than sit it up.
