Jam Tilda for Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Where on earth is the time going lately?  I have only managed to make one card this week and there doesn't seem a spare minute in the day!!! 

I have spent this morning at my youngest son's primary school as it was "Praise assembly".  Each class teacher chooses the children from their class who have excelled at school and deserve an extra special praise.  My son was praised for his excellence in literacy skills and received a Head Teacher's certificate and a leather commemorative bookmark.  I wasn't the only proud Mom in school this morning but your own are always the best!

I have made today's card using the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and so I am entering this card into their challenge.  I love using orange and green together and Autumn is a great time and there are some lovely shades of orange and green in the garden right now. 

I have used Jam Tilda which is a stamped image given to me be a friend, Missy B and it is coloured with Pro markers.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye and the swirly ribbon runch is a Martha Stewart one.  The "grass" punch is by Woodware and the retro flower and butterfly punches are by Papermania.  I have also used a bit of card candy and dew drops from my stash, together with the obligatory dusting of glitter!  The sentiment ticket was a freebie and is from Sentiments 4 You - thank you Jenny for sharing that with us on your lovely blog.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

I love pro markers - Autumn
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
An oldie but a goodie - Add a butterfly
Craftalicious - Anything Goes
Riley & Co - Colors of Autumn
Flutterby Wednesday - Must have a butterfly, fairy or angel
Moving along with the times - Use pro markers.  They have a great prize for this challenge and are being sponsored by Letraset - you must check this challenge out!

Thanks for looking,

AJ, your Tilda card is adorable! I love your swirly MS punch, the butterfly punch, and your fun flowers and leaves. I also love that little bit of embossing on the tan papers and the dusting of glitter you added to the edges. Nice job! Beautifully done!
