BBTB2 challenge.

Hello peeps!!!!
I have crawled out from beneath the pile of books and paper and other uni work stresses to post my little card for the challenge over on BBTB2.
The prize this time is a gift certificate for magnolia stamps ( oooohhhhh my fav!!!) so out came a cute little tilda sent to me in a swap a while ago.
I made this card as a thank you for a very special friend who took a lot of time and effort to set up a little cricut group for us bug lovers in our little town of Lincoln . It was the first one today and I think they were 12 of us there. It was so much fun and I had the best day. Lots of laughs and giggles and exploration of carts ( Denise found a yummy leave background I will have to try soon on wild card).

Fi loves pink so I had to pop some pink in there and wanted her to match the colouring of the rose.
The cricut cut is all off the doily card button on the wild card cart. I used the circle left from the frame and embossed it to use as a background.
I used my promarkers to colour tilda and embossed just her face and hands so they were 3Dand Fi 's (the special friend!!) chalks to colour up the bits. I used the friend embossing folder for the circle ( also Fi's!!!) and I used another special friends (thankyou denise xx) martha stewart punch for the inside and popped the phrase o top of it with some more silicone!
The funniest thing is, despite me knowing it was going to be a cricut day, I got in my normal what to take flap and didn't take my cricut so had to borrow Fi's cricut too!!I popped up the frame, rose and tilda with some silicone, I love the way they stand out a little.
Right, I must get back to my uni work now, I am struggling with this assignment but hoping to get it finshed soon, if you don't see me again by monday please come and rescue me from under the pile of screwed up paper, I will be the small person ,rocking to and fro biting her nails!!!!! romfl!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in on me!
Hugs Lou xxxxxxx
