Magnolia Down Under Challenge #26

One of my favourite challenges is the Magnolia Down Under Challenges, run by Kellie.  It's been a little while since I've joined in, but when I saw the sketch she had up for the fortnightly challenges, I had to create something for this one.  So here is the sketch to use:

And here is my creation:

This little Tilda with her ice-cream, is courtesy of Kellie herself.  She once sent to me some pre-stamped images to use and I've finally got around to using this one.  I love it and will have to look at getting this stamp for myself.  It's perfect for summery girl cards!
So I've started off with a base card of Pretty in Pink, then layered various cardstocks and DP as per the sketch layout.  I've used the lovely lace doiley punch by Martha Steward on the strip of Certain Celery DP.  It's so pretty.
I've coloured Tilda with my SU markers and aqua painter.  I love the end result, especially with watercolour paper. 
I've used some Certain Celery ribbon and added a Fancy Felt embellishment and button to the middle of the knot.  Then I've finished off the card with a sentiment from Family Phrases, using my SU circle punches.
Here's a closer look at the embellishment:

I love it chantelle. With this hot weather we have been having here in Australia it is very appropriate. Great take on the sketch.

Chantelle, with winter about to descend on us here in the US, it was nice to see your Tilda in shorts and eating ice cream. What a fantastic job you did coloring and coordinating colors with the gorgeous papers you used. Thanks for sharing your card with us a MDUC this time. Hope you can come back again for the next challenge.

Chantelle, gorgeous card. And you've used one of my favorite colour combos, pink and green. You've coloured Tilda beautifully. And yum, my favorite dessert--in ANY season, summer or winter Love the card.
