Tilda and Edwin in Sherwood Forest

Hi everyone, hope you've had a nice Saturday and if you're in the UK some of the gorgeous weather we're having. A card today with Lady Tilda and Sherwood Edwin from the Magnolia Fairytale collection and here they are in Sherwood Forest :D. Tilda and Edwin are masked together and coloured with distress inks then cut out. The background of the card was made using a bare tree cutting file on the Cricut which I sprayed in yellow, green and cappucino glimmer mist so it's lovely and sparkly IRL. I also used the die cut as a mask for the bottom layer and sprayed the glimmer mists through it to get another layer of trees, the die cut was then popped up on dimension foam. At the bottom I've painted on some grass and then die cut some leaves for the trees from Magnolia patterned paper and some butterflies and dragonflies from Cosmo Cricket paper. Finished everything off with some Stardust and Platinum stickles. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks as always for your comments which are very much appreciated.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
A spoon full of sugar - cute and girly
Pile it on - photo inspiration (I've gone for the greens)
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Lovely as a tree

Hi Chris - I don't know how you come up with these ideas. This is blow your mind gorgeous. Can you tell me which Cricut cartridge you used for the trees? I'm also wondering which one you used for your butterfly card a while back.
