A World Full of Joy! and Totally Tilda DT Call

Good afternoon peeps,
I hope everyone is enjoying the unusually hot weather and hasn't melted yet, I have to admit to coming close myself today as the shop felt a little bit like a greenhouse!
Anyway, in case some of you hadn't noticed Totally Tilda are having a DT call. However if you want to enter you need to be quick as it finishes later today. The theme is a beautiful photo inspiration challenge and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed using the fresh colour palette.

My entry is a little later than planned as for some reason the light has made it tricky to get a really good piccie but I have done my best. If you haven't already submitted an entry why not pop over and check it out even if not this time their will be more DT calls in the future. Good luck everyone!

A little cloe up

I don't know about you but I adore the Magnolia image of Tilda and Bridesmaid but I always feel the groom gets a little left out, so I decided to mask the girls and add in Edwin. I have coloured with my Distress Markers and then distressed everything with Pumice Stone DI and added sparkle with Star Dust Stickles.
The beautiful sketch came from the august challenge over at Live and Love Crafts and was a real joy to use. I am totally addicted to using these pearl clusters and also once again my Vivienne butterfly die from Memory Box makes an appearance. The DP's are Magnolia and MME and all have been faux stitched.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Totally Tilda - DT Call 'Photo Inspiration'
Midweek Magnolias - #24 'Wedding'
Live and Love Crafts - #2 'Elizabeth's fab Sketch'

Well that's enough from me today but I'll be back tomorrow to share another creation.
Happy Crafting!
Big Hugs
