Tulip & Bugs, June 2017

Hiya peeps 

Today''s make is a basic A5 rectangle card using an A4 piece of
smooth finish white card from Papermill Direct which is a paper & card 
manufacturer in the Lake District.  
The image that I coloured using my set of WH Smith water colour pencil 
crayons. i was following blog challenge themes of  "Rectangle" and a game of "Bingo" using "Ribbon/Die & Sentiment", plus loads of other  challenges.
I also used Stickles glue, in "Candy Cane" red on the Butterfly and Tonic Studio
"Nuyo" Glitter Accents on the wing tips. The coloured image is then glued, using a liquid glue so it lays flat against the turquoise/white diagonal stripped mini scalloped die cut rectangle card. I then sellotaped a piece of navy blue mini gingham checked ribbon on the back of the semi gloss mirri card 
so that it sits across the width. That large piece of semi gloss mirri card was then glued to the white base card using silicone glue gel drops so it sat a 
small distance away & then glued the topper on the card base.
The final touches were to glue the hand tied ribbon bow, the small round sentiment
and the single ladybug on to the various parts of the decorated card.

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

An apology plus my first make in 4 months

Hiya peeps

Im so sorry that Ive not been on here showing off my makes, both DT
& my own designs for challenges. The reason for the lack of work is
that I was in hospital for almost 7 weeks!!
Its a long story so I wont go into details as it would only bore you.

What I have made is a tent fold card with a design by Gerda Steiner
called Hello Friend Turtle and I coloured him using water colour pencils.
The ribbon  is from my own stash & I apologize as I can't remember
where I  brought it from. The dies, doily is from Marianne Designs,
and the mini scalloped rectangle die is from Tonic Studios.

I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
