Are you lonesome tonight.....

Morning everyone,

Well, what can I say about this card, apart from it didn't turn out anything like I planned!!

It started out as one of Kathariana's sketches and I was going to add 3 ribbons to enter a spoon full.....erm noooooo!, then Tilda was supposed to be in the sun....erm noooooo!, so like all crafters do you have to make the best out of the situation.

I had coloured the sky too dark, so decided to add the moon and stars to look like Tilda is sitting at night and added some stickles to make it look shimmery.

The ribbon has got some stitching on it, so at a push I'm going to enter this for PTW where the theme is a 'stitch in time' as I won't have time to make another (cos I have to work this weekend..booo :(

Not sure about it still, my OH thinks its great, would love to know what you think, good or bad.
  • Image: Tilda and other Magnolia
  • Paper: Scraps from the drawer
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Flowers, brads, ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day
