The Sketchy Challenges - Sandra's Sketch

Its a New Year and time for the first challenge of the year at The Sketchy Challenges!
For our first sketch of the year - we have Sandy's sketch. Oh boy - did I have fun with this sketch. It is lovely!
I coloured up cutey little Bonny Tilda for the sketch. I have to say, she is just adorable! I haven't ever coloured a little tooshie before, lol, so it was a bit of a learning experience, but oh, just look at her adorable curls and chubby cheeks!

Here is the front of the card so you can see the sketch.
All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. the adorable crystal string and berries The Ribbon Girl and chipboard butterflies and branch are Make it Crafty.

The beautiful papers are from Magnolia's new With Love collection and I've fussy cut some butterflies from the paper to embellish as well.

A little close up of the detail

I thought I'd do something different for a change and there is the sentiment inside, by North Star Stamps, the lovely heart stamp from Magnolia and more butterfies

I cut an aperture in the flap with my nesties so the sentiment could be seen through.
So there you have it. My Bonny Tilda aperture card :) It was loads of fun to make and I've been itching to share it with you for a week!
I hope you get a chance to join us at The Sketchy Challenges this fortnight!
