And now for something completely different......

Hi everyone, for me today's post is something totally different from my current run of inky,painty creations, time to get down and dirty with cute!!
This weeks challenge at Crafts4eternity is 
and I have linked this theme in with a card I have made to celebrate a little girls (my friends daughter) 11th birthday.
I have brushed the dust of my Magnolia Stamps and made a card featuring"Tilda" with glasses, (because it looks like Millie who the card is for).

I have started with a shaped card blank and covered is paper, cut round it, then sanded the edges (got to add a touch of grunge). I have layered up a piece of cheesecloth, Tim Holtz postage stamp die cut in coordinating papers, the centre of one I have embossed with a Happy Birthday folder. On the edge alterations butterfly die, butterflies sanded with a bit of bling added. Name and numbers cut using Alterations Word Play die and highlighted with stickles. Then sitting on one of the stamps little Tilda.
Tilda has been coloured using distress markers as water colour paints. I have added a little pinflair craft glaze to the glasses to make them look more real.
sometimes you just cant beat a little bit of cute.......
