I Simply Adore You! -Sketch Saturday Challenge #199 -Sponsored By Bunny Zoe's Crafts!!

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone! 
I admit I'm not wearing any green today...but I'm safely hibernating in my house with our Oregon weather and no pinches for me today! LOL! I don't really celebrate this holiday but I know many who for those who do celebrate, have a fun night but please stay safe!


It's time for a new super fun sketch by Jo this weekend at Sketch Saturday! All the Saturday girls have done a wonderful job cooking up some inspiration as well as our awesomely and equally talented GDT Cor* so please be sure to stop by their blogs as well and leave them some comment love! To start you off is a little inspiration from me...

The sketch!

This week we have a fabulous regular sponsor Bunny Zoe's Crafts!!

For my card this week, I have used another Magnolia cutie call "Tilda As Butterfly" which can be found here! I couldn't resist sparkling up her wings with Stickles! I used a white opaque gel pen to polka her little dress!

Hi Tracy,
What a lot of work you have put into your gorgeous card!
I love the bright happy colours :o) You have done a great job with the sketch. Tilda is so beautiful - great to put polka dots on her dress, it makes her stand out so well. Gotta love that special flower. Also your stitching, die cutting and your other 'bling'.
Many thanks for joining in our Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!
Hugs, Candy
