Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Sitting Pretty Tilda

Hi there!
Thanks for coming by today and paying me a visit.  I got a chance to create my card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge here .  Todays recipe was:-

1.  to use 2 papers
2.  use ripped paper
3.  use only 4 embellishments

The use of only 4 embellishments scared me a little, lol! I enjoy adding my embellishments and not ever having to count them you forget how quickly they add up!  BUT, I did manage to stick with 4 and I'm very proud of managing to achieve that!!
So onto the card, I used a new Tilda image with one of those awfully sweet little Magnolia birds! I coloured everything with my copics.  I paper pleated the bottom panel (my first attempt at this) and then added two ripped layers on top.  The white grosgrain ribbon and the apricot prima flower & pearl brad for center finish that panel off.
I added dimensionals to Tilda and popped her up so she sat nicely on the pleated panel then used a couple more ripped paper pieces to add the simple sentiment.  And there you have it!
Must share my luck with you all - I won a prize today on last weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge and a prize on some blog candy yesterday!  Wow - can't believe my luck - maybe my teeny tiny drop of Irish blood gave me some good luck this week, lol!
Wishing you all a wonderful evening and looking forward to some blog hopping tonight!

Super you won something it gives you a buzz. Love the card so difficult to limit the embellishments I am like you do not count. This challenge did us good.
