Basic Grey birthday card

The Basic Grey Challenge is back with a lovely sketch......and Stamp with Fun want something for a birthday.......so my new little Summertime Tilda gets her first outing........maybe she wasn't a good choice.......cause after 2 weeks of sun it's now raining here.......not ice cream weather today!!!! Tilda has been watercoloured.......DCWV card.......my favourite BG Lemonade papers [love these and have used so many I may have to invest in another pad of them].......American Crafts acrylic flowers [these never photograph well,they're actually a similar pink to Tilda's top!!]........brads and ribbon from stash.
Paid a visit to The Make It Box in Bexhill yesterday......the only craft shop for miles......and picked up some K & Co pads at £2 each......so maybe give the Lemonade papers a rest for awhile!!!
Off out for a cream tea with my SIL today....despite my resolution to eat less.....oh dear......well it will count as a late lunch!!!

Hi there Jacky,
Smashing card, those papers are very pretty and I especially like your colouring, I think the shading has turned out very well.
So you have got the weather we had yesterday. It was rather damp on our ramble in Derbyshire. But at least it was cool, I prefer rambling in cool weather.
Ta ra for now
