Tilda with roses leaving card!

Morning peeps!!!!!
I am on cloud 9 today!!! I sent a picture of one of my cards to simply cards and papercraft magazine and its in the letters section!!!!!! I didn't even know it was in there until my friend kate told me!!! so sam and I went to tesco and bought it straight away!!!!!! mind you...I had to get out of my pj's first!!! I know it is only the letters section but I am over the moon!!!!!!
So anyway!! this card I made for a girl at work who is leaving us tommorrow for a new job, I used the gorgeous tilda with roses stamp that I got in a recent stamped image swap I was in, she is just right for a leaving card I think with that big bunch of flowers!!!
I coloured her with my copics ( I even remembered to highlight her hair!!!!) and popped some glitter on the butterfly and glaze on the rose heads to make them pretty.
I printed out " Goodbye and good luck...." on my computer ( i just copy and pasted it a few times to get it to be a background and used a darker green colour, i quite like that bit!!) then I popped that part of the card through my cuttlbug with my script embossing folder and popped abit of green ribbon on the bottom of it.
Then I popped another mat under that and folded the corner over and popped a little basic grey brad through the fold. Then another mat ( i know i cheat by using double sided cardstock but it is sooo much easier to co-ordinate for colour challenged peeps like me!!!!) I gave all my mats edges a little rub with the edge of my scissors to fluff and distress them a little too.
The last mat I just left as it was and then I stuck them altogether on a card base I made myself with plain white cardstock,I inked the edges though so it wasn't too bright. I popped 3 little card candy brads to finish off the front and I used a scrap of paper I had left with a corner swirl for the inside I forgot to take a picture of that bit though!!!
I used my corner chomper a lot on this one ( ooooh i love my corner chomper!!!)
Right I had better get ready to go to work now!!! I have planned some sports day practice for the little people today ready for next weeks sports day!!!
Thankyou for popping in!!!
