Another post from me today

This is another card I have made today to enter into various challenges. I have followed a lovely sketch by Arianne at Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge blog. The image is a Magnolia stamp called Tilda in the sea which I have coloured in with promarkers and paper pieced her dress. The backing paper is from a 6 x 6 pad of papers I have by Crafts Too. The tags have been punched with my Whale of a punch Deckled tag punch which I have put together with a green Basic Grey brad, and stuck a Happy Birthday peel off too. The backing card is from my craft stash and the green brads in the top left hand corner are also Basic Grey large brads.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
1/ Just Magnolia where the theme this week was "Summer"
2/ Stampin for the weekend Iy chose the Song "Time of the season" as Summer is a season and this card is quite summery.
3/ Secret Crafter where the theme this week is Pink and Green as I have used lots of pink and green on this card.
4/ Sunday Sketch and Stamp as I have followed Ariannes beautiful sketch
Thanks for looking x
