Several at one go!

This card began as the Day 195 Pretty Pattern from 365 Cards. Specifically we had to paper piece some gingham into the card. Here is Tilda, resplendent in gingham, also incorporating a little embossing to qualify for the Just Magnolia challenge this week.
For Truly Scrumptious, a sketch had to be followed but also 3 different stamps had to be utilised. I have used the flowers on the lower paper, the random dots on the upper and Tilda herself as the main image.
Dutch Dare has a picture inspiration for the current challenge. I guess that different monitors display colours slightly differently, but this is my interpretation of these lovely shades.
'Faking it' is the heading for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge. Being posh, I did 'faux' stitching. I used my new Tim Holtz Design Ruler, which arrived today from Cuddly Buddly, which has holes for piercing. It made life a lot easier.
I make that enough challenges for one card. My husband has just arrived home from a day watching cricket, so I think a gin and tonic calls.
Thanks for looking!
