Yeah I'm back,

The lovely man at the repair shop fixed my computer  for me lovely and quick so I'm finally able to put on my Totally Tilda card for you lol,
Our challenge is to use a punch and a die cut but you must use both,

My daughters best friend is moving into her first new home soon, so I thought I'd make her a card,
I've used distress inks to colour with,
My punch detail are the tiny butterflies and  Martha Stewart Swirling lace punch, and my die cuts are the Magnolia Doo hickey fence die,
Doo Hickey grasses die,
Doo Hickey Heart swirl,
 Memory box Arboscello tree,
quickcutz key,
 Marianne sign post,
Nestie Stamp die,
and Magnolia Doo Hickey cloud die,

Pie Tilda has been masked onto the suitcases first, coloured then cut out and mounted onto the card with pin flair glue, the sign post I have raised with pin flair too,

Edwins town stamps have been coloured, cut out and layered on the  side stepper card along with the cloud die and the tree a few punched butterflies finish it off,

Tildas summer car has had the same treatment too, and has been layered in front of the Doo Hickey fence, the swirling lace die has been used as another fence on the layer behind but you can only just see it lol,

you may be able to catch a glimpse of it here on the right, along with the heart swirl and the quickcutz key to the left,

My card blank was a side stepper card but I added my own front step too to get all the elements in I wanted lol,

challenges
Simon says stamp ~ anything goes
Deep Ocean ~ Spring

I've masked stamping Tilda with a Molly Bloom stamp I have and then coloured the images using distress inks, to be a little different I have made mock cards to look like Tilda has been busy stamping her self lol, this was going to be for the friends challenge on TOMIC but of course I missed it DUH!
