Tilda and a card or two

I seemed to have abandoned my Magnolias lately so to remedy this I made this card originally for Tilda and Edwin but realised that Tilda was slightly bigger so I'm going to have to use him on another card. The challenge on Stamp with Fun this week is for Pink and Brown and it was only by chance that I found these papers, I was looking for some papers for my CJ and I found the papers I brought last year especially for cardmaking wondered where they went. They are Kelly Panacci papers, the sketch is from Bea she makes brilliant sketches. The sentiment is Francoise Read stamps from Woodware, the middle is interchangeable

I also popped over the CPS challenge blog to check out the sketch#111 and it immediately made think of this Inkadinkado stamp set. I stamped with a Kaleidacolor pad and just layered a couple of the wings, it was one of quickest cards I've made in a long time, its a pity the camera doesn't show how striking the colours are.
The new cooker comes today so hubby has disconnected our old one but he had a bit of shock when he opened the cover at the back inside was a very dead mouse now we know why it didn't work.

Both cards are BEAUTIFUL Debby... I love how you have the squared popping up going up the side of the other image on the butterfly card, and as for Tilda, She is just adorable... and that says it all. I just love how you have used the ribbon for her to sit on. That is a GREAT idea, I hadn't thought of that. I just might have to try that sometime. =)
PERFECTION as usual Girl! =)
Hugs
Lynda =)
