Hi everyone,

Hope your weekend is going well.  It has been a really cool breeze here but the sun has shone which has made a lovely change and my does it lift the spirits!
Tonight I have a card to show you which I have just completed this afternoon.  I worked to a lovely Sketch for the Pixie Cottage Challenge with an optional theme of 'Sweet as Candy' and this tied in lovely with the Challenges at My Mums Craft Shop which is entitled Food/Drink and also Magnolia Mania which is  'small scene'.  It seems ages since I used this lovely Magnolia Tilda image and I had such fun colouring her with copics and Promarkers.  She has always been a good old favourite of mine!   I love the Melissa Frances 'Kitchen' papers, I think that is fruit at the top left and that lovely teapot charm I think cover the drink part of the challenge too.

You will see that lovely cheesecloth again peeping from the centre of the scene, the flower and also the button stars at the top right (love these buttons!).  This lovely flower was one which was a free gift with an order from Magnolicious.  I removed the centre and popped a small rose in its place, coloured it with copics to match the colour combo and added red stickles.  Then I added the leaves which are made using a Martha Stewart punch (Branch) and the little stamens too.  These were a present but I think they were from Cuddly Buddly.

And of course there is a Martha Stewart punched butterfly, I just cannot seem to leave this punch alone!  I think everything else came from stash.

I loved making this card and must admit I am quite pleased with it.  Some just seem to go together better than others!

I would like to enter the following Challenges with this card:
