Whoo hoo I've managed a challenge card.

I think this is my first challenge card for about three weeks and I feel like I've totally lost
the plot.

This one is for Just Magnolia and the lovely Martine's fabulous sketch - loved it sweetie, especially the pocket bit and will certainly be using it again.
I would have used one of my Magnolias Stamp club summer stamps if I had received them - but heaven only knows where they have got to. Have emailed Magnolia (twice) but
not heard back as yet.

I used Tilda and the Safari bus from the Animal collection. I boobed again - brought my copics with me, plus one or two stamps but guess what - no Copic friendly paper. I
already had the bus stamped up so no problem, but Tilda I had to stamp on ordinary cardstock and couldn't manage to colour her dress satisfactorily so I ended up paperpiecing
that and her boots.

The papers are SU, the flowers a mixture (mainly Prima) and the ribbon, small spacers and pearls are from my stash. I didn't have any eyelets for the tag so I made hole with a pokey thingy, threaded ribbon through and knotted it to cover the slighty untidy holes.
Not my best effort bu hopefully when my things arrive tomorrow and I sort them out normality will resume!!
