Up up and away Tilda

I am back with another card that I have made just for fun!  Its been a while since I have taken part in some challenges so I thought this would be a good time to have a go.  I was up while the early hours making this card because I didn't feel tired.  I should have been at the Dentist at 9.45 having my wisdom tooth out, but due to the snow I have had to cancel!  Perhaps if I knew it was going to be cancelled I wouldn't have been up so late.

I have made the card myself because I am getting fed up of boring 6 x 6 or 8 x 8 cards.  The papers are from Magnolias "With Love" collection called Rose Romance and I think I need more of this one because I love the vintage feel of it - so pretty!

 I have used my Up up and away Tilda (my only Tilda from the new collection) and my "you are so special" sentiment.  The fab pegs were an xmas purchase from Poundland - I knew they could be used for something!!  I have used my beautiful prize possession, magnolia heart die for the tag to lift the card out of its pocket which I just LOVE.
On the front of the card I used some pretty pink pleated ribbon from my stash with a Tim Holtz ticket and Cameo (top left)

I love this card because it came out exactly how I wanted it to and for a change it was something I wanted to make rather than for an order.

I am going to enter my card in the following Challenges: -

Right I am off to colour if little Ruby has a sleep this afternoon.  She has been so good over the last couple of days and has even started to laugh and smile!

Love Kerry xxx
