Through the arched window

A few might remember Playschool with Brian Cant, but it's been a while now!

Spent yesterday crafting, blog hopping and chatting whilst suffering from a cold.
The crafting didn't go well and included green glimmer mist being sprayed down the front of the fridge! Here's one of the projects that I was struggling with.
She is practically the only thing usable that came out of a day's crafting, but I do like her. I bought the cards years ago, can't for the life of me think why, and have never used them.

I'm playing along with 2 photo inspiration challenges with this one. Caardvarks and BasicGrey #15. All the papers are BG and the cage stamp. I realised Tilda's feet were going to hang over the bottom of the card so I extended it with a strip punched using a Fiskars border.
Punched out all the flowers and made the little seagull from an old Hobbycraft stamp.
The butterfly is from an X-cut dimensions punch, I've just snipped it free from the paper and finished it with Papermania jewels.

Got up at lunchtime today, finished this card off and now I think I might go back to bed before I have to go out later. I suppose with all the children having been ill it was inevitable that it would end with me at some point!

Hey Kate, No it's not a die cut, it's actually chipboard. I used it as a mask for that card then painted it to use on this layout. Thanks for stopping by!!
