Cute Card Thursday!

Happy Thursday everyone!
This is my first time checking in with the Cute Card Thursday challenge and it was to use *metal* on your card - brads, charm, eyelet etc. I had a birthday card to make so I thought I would incorporate the challenge into my card.
I haven't stamped up this Tilda and her flower basket in a long time and with a desperate need to be feeling that Spring has to be around the corner, I thought it was the perfect image! I chose this very pretty paper as my colour palette and pulled out the pale blue, purple and greens from it to play with. Using my tombow markers, I coloured in Tilda and cut her out. I used lilac Flower Soft with sprinkles of cream on the top for her flower basket. I used the very cute 'with love' cuttlebug embossing border which fit perfectly on the blue panel next to Tilda. I popped Tilda up with dimensional pop dots. A doily, ribbon, sewing machine and metal filagree flower finished off the card.
Below is a closer view of the Flower Soft I used for her flower basket. I added some purple Stickles to add a little sparkle to the top of the flowers! I sprayed it with a Matte spray sealant to ensure the flower soft doesn't fall away from the card.
And there it is - two jobs done in one!! Thanks for taking the time to look today.
I am hoping to get some blog candy together - either for when I reach 10,000 hits or 50+ followers - depends which gets there first! So if you're thinking of following my blog you would help me reach my goal and get my blog candy out sooner - good for everyone, no?? ;)
