Hope you are all having a relaxing Easter weekend? Just wanted to share a new card with you before we go and scoff all the choccy eggs tomorrow lol!
It's Ribbon Tilda from Magnolia - from the Christmas collection - but I think she's suitable for all year round really! I'm trying to use colours and colour combinations at the moment that are out of my comfort zone, so I've coloured her with a range of apricot, honeycomb and saffron promarkers, with a touch of lime green & lime zest on the socks/shoes! Think it makes quite a nice, spring-like combination - I hope!
The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid and CardCraftUK, and the green backing paper is from K&Co. I'm afraid I'm not sure where the pearlised card is from as it's been in my stash for a while! The sentiment is from LOTV and the die cuts are spellbinders and Marianne Creatables for those lovely ivy leaves.  I've also used a CraftsToo embossing folder ('Daisies'). 
Just before I go, I thought I'd show a couple of spring lambs! 

Aren't they just too cute! It's from a birthday card made for a friend of my daughter, and the image is from Joanna Sheen's 'Furry Friends' cd, as is the pretty pastel spotty backing paper. A proper Easter image! 
Have a good weekend - and don't eat too much chocolate! 

I've entered the Tilda card in the Just Magnolia challenge 'Anything Goes'.

  2. Beautiful cards, Kim. Love the colours you have used. I tend to always move towards pinks, blues and lilacs - I really must try to get out of my comfort zone, too. :o)
