Just Magnolia #77 + Wild Orchid #8

Good afternoon everyone hope you are well? I'm sorry for not being around much recently but I've had hubby off work for a month after hurting his back at work and it's put my crafting right off balance :( I always feel guilty crafting when he's at home doing nothing and especially with him in pain for so long too, I did manage a few at first but seemed every time I sat down I had to get up to do something,lol... I've had a family member staying with me for a few days too so that made it even worse ... I will try to catch up on my commenting though so please bear with me .... anyway guest now gone & hubby back to work tonight, so I decided it was time for some ME TIME today :) I've had a quick look around and decided to make my card for entry into the following 2 challenges..........................
1) .. Just Magnolia #77 Dawny's Sketch
2) .. Wild Orchid #8 ~ Pastel Colours

I really enjoyed making this card, this little Tilda was a dream to colour and I luv the pastel colours, although seeing as it was photographed in daylight the colours look really dull to me :( Oh I do hate these dark days dont you?
