Chocolate Tilda

Good afternoon

Hope you are all well.  For the last couple of weeks it has been very hot here in Norfolk but it rained yesterday and has been dull today.  As much as I love the sunshine it has been quite refreshing to have a little break from it.  Hopefully the sun won't stay away for too long! 

Anyway I made this card on Saturday but haven't had a chance to blog it until now.  I am very critical of the cards I make and there is always something I wish I had done differently.  However, I do really like this card.  My colouring turned out much better than I had expected and it all went together perfectly.  No doubt I won't be as happy with my next card lol!

Image ~ Magnolia 'Tilda with Peony'
Papers ~ GCD Studio 'Ella Blue'
Flowers ~ Beige (Wild Orchid Crafts), Dark brown (Mulberry Crafts)
Raffia ~ Local craft shop
Gems ~ Prima


Totally Tilda ~ Chocolate
Just Magnolia ~ 3 flowers, 2 papers & 1 ribbon
Papertake Weekly ~ In the garden
Wild Orchid Challenge ~ Say it with flowers
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Monochromatic

I am now off to link the challenges and then make a start on the mountain of ironing which is bigger than normal because of the recent heatwave.  I really couldn't bring myself to stand and iron in the hot weather.  I may be gone for some time lol!

Lovely card! Your shades of brown are so subtle and elegant!

A good friend, who's a meteorological freak (think train-spotting, only with weather) always proclaimed that East Anglia was the driest part of the country whenever we went on holiday there to birdwatch. Of course, that was usually the wettest week of the year for East Anglia...

No matter, it's a wonderful part of the country, rain or shine!!
