Tilda combined challenges

Hi blog hoppers, bet you thought i was watching the football, oh no my friends, not me, i am not a football fan, my DH plays three times a week and good for him, keeps him fit, but i just couldnt give a rats a*$ about the game.  Right now there is also all the noise of the vuvuzela's and not confined to the stadium either, its in the suburbs day and night, what a racket.

Well today i have been quite busy, made four or five cards but they wont all be posted today, but in the next few days as the challenges come up. this card i used the sketch from Just Magnolia, and then i am gonna also be entering this in the Meljens designs since they want sparkle and glitz, then of course i couldnt not enter the Magnolialicious birthday bash.  A rather simple card since i am following the sketch and that took away all the geuss work, added some flattened bead caps and rhinestones onto layered flowers, colored my image with copics, also gave it lots of stardust stickles, so that the yellowed bits would take on the appearance of being gold.
