Dream As If You'll Live Forever - Spanish Tilda

It's going to be a super busy weekend in my house as we have visitors and lots of fun things planned including a trip to the Pumpkin Patch, a night at "Movies at the Park" and two sleepovers so wish me luck!
Today I have a card for you using the gorgeous Spanish Tilda.
I did have trouble coloring as black and red are the hardest to blend but I still like how she turned out.

Challenges:

Midnight Madness - Sketch
Papertake Weekly - 3 of A Kind (3 colors, 3 strips of ribbon, brads in 3's)
Tuesday Throwdown - 3's
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Black, White and 1 other Color
Antyhing Goes - Ribbons
Just Inspirational Challenges - Anything Goes
No Time To Stamp - Hard Rock Cafe (metallic, rhinestones etc)


Card Recipe:
Image - Spanish Tilda
Paper - Garden Vignettes by My Minds Eye
Medium - Copic Markers
Glitter Brads - Making Memories Glitter Deco Brads
Sentiment - Heidi Grace
Button - Jenni Bowlin Red Buttons (a rhinestone fits in perfectly!)
Border Punch - Martha Stewart



I just love how cute she looks, shy and coy, and button was just perfect to add the rhinestone into.
I hope you like her too and I hope you have a fun weekend!
Be sure to check back next week for lots of new cards.
