Sitting Tilda With Butterfly

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I have been itching to make a shaped card so last week while I was adoring Teresa's beautiful creations I found a fab tutorial on how to make shaped card blanks using GoKreate cutting template's
You can find it HERE..
Now my super bloggy friend Kirsty-Anne generously cut and sent me some shaped templates but, I knocked over a cup of coffee while I was at my craft bench last week and along with the image I had coloured which took me ages to do and all of the shapes she had sent everything got ruined.
 I've not told her yet! Lol.
Anyway hubby offered to buy me a pack of GoKreate templates and today they arrived.
I really enjoyed making my card featuring beautiful
Sitting Tilda With Butterfly from the Once Upon A Time Collection.

Here is my card.

I have coloured Sitting Tilda With Butterfly with Polychromos pencils, added Glamour Dust to the butterfly's wings, cut around the image and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink.
I made the shaped card using GoKreate Large Frames Frilly #2.
The pretty papers are Maja Designs "Vintage Spring Basics" from Dies To Die For.
The Sizzix heart die and butterflies which I have cut around and inked with Tea Dye distress ink are also from the paper collection.
The white paper doily which I have added tiny pink rhinestones to is off of Ebay.
The Guipure lace is from The Ribbon Girl. I have used a selection of flowers. The large pink flower is Prima, the Chrystanth is Kort & Godt. The roses and 3mm white pearls are from
 Wild Orchid Crafts.
The sentiment stamp is from Lili Of The Valley.
I have used the smallest GoKreate template to cut the paper inside the card.

Here you can see Tilda surrounded with the flower arrangement.
I added pink 3mm pearls to the centre of the ivory roses.

Here is a close up of Sitting Tilda With Butterfly.
She is so adorable.
I hope you like my card!
