Totally Tilda Banner challenge

Hi, I haven't had much chance to upload anything this week as I've been busy finishing a huge wall art I'm creating for my home. I will share it once it's completely finished.

I did manage to make 2 cards this week and one is for Totally Tilda, they have a challenge where you need to make a card using a banner or pennant so here's my take, feel free to join in at

I haven't done a folded card like this before but thought this little Tilda would look cute looking over the top of the banner. Sorry the photo is a little wishy-washy, the colours are actually very bright in this card.
FWAB used: Adhesive pearls in olive green and red

Wednesday's Challenge entry - Anything goes!

I love All that Scraps online shop, they have all the gorgeous CC Designs digi stamps and I have quite a few of them now. Their challenge is here if you'd like to join in. It still has a few days to go and as the challenge title says "Anything goes".
So here's a card I've made using one of their digi stamps (Cupcake Birgitta) to buy her here's the link - she comes in digi and rubber format. I love the digis as you can print them so easily and change the size of them. I've also used the Spring bench digi from their store too and coloured them both with copic markers.
