Sketch n Stash Challenge 63

Good morning all, sorry I am a tad late posting this.. but it will be worth the wait :) We have a brand new challenge starting today at Sketch n Stash, and I really loved this sketch.  So a big well done to Jill. :)
Defo one I will be using again.   The rest of the DT have made some super fab cards... so make sure you pop over and take a look, certainly some fab inspiration there.  Well done girls. x
I have used Tilda.. I still love colouring up these little cuties. And have to admit, I was rather pleased with this one... (shame nothing else gone right since LOL)..

my new stash are the gorge papers from SU, and old stash ... the red flower... which I had lurking in the bottom of a jar... it was actually a sort of poppy affair, with two layers... that I had bought donkeys years ago as a flower arrange type thingy... so technical, lol, and I so nearly threw them out,but decided to pull them apart instead... so glad I did... makes fabby little flowers now.

Copics ..... E01, E00, E11, E13, E000, R20 .... skin
B32, B34, B37 and B39... these blend beautifully, (I noticed not all the colours blend as well as others).
E11, E13, E15 and E17 for the parcel.... cant remember what I used for the sash, sorry...
Don' t forget to tell us which piece of old or new stash you have used on your creation, we always like to know, and hey, that is the name and game of the challenge Lol.
Am entering this in the Magnolia Stamper Lovers Challenge
and Totally Tilda Challenge

So we hope you have lots of fun with this sketch and we all on the DT look forward to seeing your fab cards.
have a good week everyone.... hugs Jackie x
