Magnolia Tilda with Leo the Lion

Hello everyone,

I'm back again with my card for our new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia and this week our challenge is 'Buttons'.

This is the first time I have got round to colouring up Tilda with Leo the Lion, which is very appropriate for the month of August. I coloured this image with copics and Spectrum Noir Pencils whilst we were sweltering in the heat and humidity and had real problems get the pens to blend lol. I am still practicing hand stitching, some are better than others, but I am determined to crack it. The lush papers are from Pion. The beautiful Ivory Fine Cotton Lace is from the Ribbon Girls and the flowers are from my crafty stash. The swirl die is my favourite Magnolia Doohickeys flourish die. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment has been printed from my computer and wound round a very cute cotton reel.
