I coloured Tilda with polychromos and cut her out.The ribbon is from hobbycraft,the sentiment and adhesive stones are Papermania and ive used various nesties and an MS punch-lovin this particular one at the moment.

It must have 2 layers(which can include the base of the card(, a ribbon and something that sparkles".

The second challenge is PAPERTAKE WEEKLY which is New Beginnings and for this I have used my gorge new FF's Pink Parfait stash :)
