A (Distressed) Girly but Blue

...is the challenge at Tilda & Co. this week. I got to it early this week!! For some reason I love doing my Tilda's in blue and pairing it with brown!! So this challenge was a great one for me!! It also fits the Saturday's workout challenge - It's all distressed!! Which again is awesome for me because I just love distressing!! I used K & Co. paper from the Classic K paper pack. The paper ribbon is also K & Co. Brads and button I had laying around. The flower and photo corner are from a rak. I had to paper piece her dress because I was trying to watercolor and messed up but I have to keep trying I love the way it looks. I distressed every edge of cardstock with my basic grey tools and I inked up the patterned paper with some distress ink. I used my glitter pen on my flower and on Tilda's wings. I just got a blue one and couldn't resist putting it on her wings but then had to tone it down with the silver. Sentiment is from CTMH - because of you. The inside says ....because your in it.

I hope I am better at posting and creating this week. I had family drop by all week at random times and I had lawn work. This is my first spring in my house so I have transplanting and cleaning up to do. I couldn't waste the beautiful weather we have been having!!!

EDIT: I forgot to mention I found this sketch on Sandy's blog! She has some beautiful sketches and cards!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!!!
