Tilda in orange and brown

Good afternoon!
Well, we are melting again today on 37C (in the shade, in the Sun it is over 40C), I'm not sure if I like summers at all. But, it's time for challenges again! Woohoo! :)

Here is a card I made on Friday and I'm entering the following ones with it:
My time to craft - to use flowers on our creations
Roses on Paper - to use hearts on our creations
Midnight Madness challenge - I followed their sketch
Simon Says Stamp challenges - this week the theme is Distressing
Dutch Dare Cards Challenge - to use lace on our creations
Just Magnolia Challenge blog - also has the theme "Distressing"

Well, I don't know about you, but I just love the orange/brown colour combo, it just gives me this lovely Autum feeling and I love Autumn! :) I used this cute Tilda image, which I got from my lovely blogging sister Anne. It's been so long since I made a Tilda card and I really enjoy them, they are so great for colouring. The papers are from stash. The butterfly isstamped with the butterfly stamp from the SU set, Merci. I staped one on the card, then stamped another one on a piece of a white cardstock, coloured it in, cut it out and attached onto the one on the card. The brown flower is Poppicrafts. The lace, ribbons, button and leaves are from stash. The hearts were made with a corner punch. Sorry, I'm not posting the links, I still have aso much work to do with my new blog, as my old one, as you probably now is gone and all my old posts and links.

I coloured this cute Tilda with watercolours

The cute little butterfly was coloured with watercolours, too.

The sketch at Midnight Madness
