Busy Bee Blue Tilda

Good morning bloggers I hope today finds you all well and full of the joys of spring!
I had the most stressful night when nothing I did would go right...guess you've all been there LOL but I stuck with it and eventually ended up with a card I do want to share with you
Fresh from my win at Ladybugs Crafts Ink yesterday I thought I was on a roll - but everything I touched rolled right off the table!
I painted my chipboard flowers blue but I didn't realise there were so many different blues, so after trying about 10 different ones I decided to paint over them (again) with white crackle paint, then they got stuck to the table with the paint!
Tilda was coloured with copics and that was another mistake cos I coloured her first then tried to match her up to papers. I thought I'd learnt that lesson a while ago - can't believe I made the same mistake twice!
Eventually I settled on Tim Holtz card - didn't think I'd ever cut into it!
The lush satin ribbon is from Ribbon Girl and I've nearly used it all and can't remember which it is,  and yes I have looked at them all! I found some Prima tinted flowers and added a pearl brad centre, punched out some vellum flowers and thats about it.

I am entering her into the following challenges

You sound like me when I make a card. I have more paper than my local scrapbook store but if I color an image 1st I can NEVER match it up ... You've certainly done a wonderful job on this little creation so all's well that ends well. LOVE the blues !!!
Hugs, Janie
