Tilda with basket of cherries


Hello from the wet & windy midlands again, (yuk! don't you just hate this weather?) never mind perfect for crafting I guess.
I've made this card for the Sketch N Stash Challenge, the challenge was to make a card following the sketch and using new/neglected stash, my new item is the parisian die cutter set by Spellbinders I love using these and my neglected item is this colour cardstock, I had used every other colour in my stash except this yukky green colour and now I've used it I think it looks alright.
Hope you like my card. hugs Teresa xx

This card is for the Sketch N Stash challenge
