STAMPTACULAR #105 - "Buttons, Bling & Bloom" with Colour Create and Charisma Cardz

Hello, hello! This is my first card as a DT Member for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge where the theme is "Buttons, Bling & Bloom! ". We are lucky enough to be sponsored for the whole of April by the fabby Magnolia-liciousand this week our additonal sponsor is the equally brilliant Simon Says Stamp.
I made this card for a certain fluffy blog buddy to celebrate, not only her birthday, but also packing up her household (including all of her craft things) and moving to a new home. I thought this cute little Tilda was perfect because I felt sure that this might be what Fluff looked like as she was racing out of the old house at the last minute!Are you reading this, Fluff? I do hope you received the card!
My papers are "Floral" by Wild Rose Studio. I have it on good authority that the recipient likes lilac and lemon as a colour combo. Tilda is coloured in Copics and Promarkers. Paper blooms are Prima and the ribbons, buttons and bling are from my stash. The sentiment is a freebie that came with my Craft Stamper Magazine.
Why not come and play at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week.
You might win a prize from one of our generous sponsors! Magnolia-licious are offering two sweet Minis and Simon Says Stamp has a $ 20 gift voucher!
And do stop by to view the lovely creations from my equally lovely teamies! Their details are on my side bar!
I'm also entering my card into Colour Createwho want to see "Pastel colours" and Charisma Cardzwho want to see "Bling and Sparkles". You can't tell the shimmer from the photo but it is there and my gems are big and bold and very "bling".

Hello my fav little Flufette! I am reading this and yes I received this beauty. The image was not lost on me, and yes, I did leave in a rush but sadly I was rather stressed at the time!
