Tilda with flower pot card

This was the Tilda stamp that made me give into temptation after I had made a little pact with myself not to buy any more until I had inked up and used all of the others that I have bought.  I spotted it on a few blogs and it was a case of needing it, not just wanting it - you're with me on that one, right?  If you scroll down a couple of post you will see when I inked it up and added a little bit of grass and a butterfly that has been in my collection for almost 20 years.  I'm really pleased with how this one has turned out and I'm liking the bright summery colours at the moment!

Here's what I've used:

Magnolia stamp - Tilda with Flower Pot, coloured with pro markers
Pink paper by Anna Griffin
Flower paper by My Mind's Eye
Martha Stewart scallop lace heart punch
Happy Birthday stamp by Stamps Away
Tape ribbon (don't really know the correct name for it) - recycled from a sewing kit that it was wrapped around
Buttons and pearls from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

A spoonful of sugar - anything goes
Anything goes challenge - Bingo (I chose Ribbon, flowers and Punches)
Claudia and Co - girl's birthday card
Cupcake craft - in the garden
Creative cowgirls - anything goes
One stitch at a time - anything goes
Pear Tree designs - use a stamped image
Divas by Design - anything goes
Thanks for looking!
