One for Just Magnolia

My second post tonight!! wow it takes me all week to post once then I do 2 in a night lol.
I was looking at some of the challenges and just realised that I didn't post my card that I made the other day for Just Magnolia so thought I'd  better hurry up and get it posted!

I coloured this image a while ago when I first got my Polychromos pencils and it was sitting on the top of my coloured image box so thought it was about time I used her.
I really like this image, there's just something about her that makes it a bit different from the rest of the Tilda's. I don't know what it is though........... anyway I like her so I used her :)

 The pic looks a bit washed out here cmpared to what it is like irl but it is night time so I can't complain that much, at least my camera is working again!
The paper is by Papermania, it was a double sided 12x12 and I used both sides. Ribbon is SU!, roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little yellow ones are some I found in my stash and I have no idea where I bough them.... think they might have been from a huge lot of flowers I got ages ago off Ebay.
The pretty butterfly is one that one of my dt ladies (Geraldine) at By The Cute and Girly sent me for my birthday. They are so pretty that I didn't want to use them lol and told her that I would keep them for special cards, but Geraldine told me that I should just use them because there is no sense in keeping things for "best" because we might be dead and gone before the time for using our best comes.
And it kind of got me thinking about all the other stuff I hoard to use on special cards or don't use because I only have one of those left etc. I hope there is still a good few years left in me yet though lol, but you know what I mean. 
So anyway I used one and I am going to be brave and use some of the papers I have kept for ages because I didn't want to cut them or the embelishments that cost me that little bit more and I only have a few of left etc. I may cry while I am using them but I will do it lol.

I have some dt stuff to do tonight because I forgot about my project for the FSS challenge which is on the 25th so I'd better get something made while I have some spare time.

Hi Lora - what a pretty card and i love that Tilds too. Te pins and yellows are gorgeous and you are right that little butterfly is exquisite and too nice to be out on show. I know what you mean though i tend to do the same as you - but do try to be a bit better at using things these days..
