Waterlily Tilda.

Hi crafty bloggers.
I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine!
This is the third time I have made a card featuring Waterlily Tilda and this time my card is a shaped one and very summery too. I really love this gorgeous little lady.
 I can finally say that I am now a Tildarette!
For the shaped card I have used Go Kreate large frames Frilly #2.
I have stamped Tilda with Memento Toffee Crunch ink and coloured her with Polychromos pencils.
She has been cut out with a CArt-Us nesting circle die and matted onto pink card with a
 Sizzix Bigz scallop circle die.
The papers are Magnolia "Summer Memories" Flamingo Flowers and Art Deco Miami.
The papers and white doily have been inked around the edges with Tim Holtz
 Spun Sugar distress ink.
The doily is from Ebay.
The lovely lace is called scalloped Venice "Rose."
I have Frant-aged the daisies with shabby pink embossing enamel and used shabby white on the Memory Box Pippi butterflies colouring their centres with a pink carnation Promarker.
I have taken a shot of the card at an angle.
I have used one of the Sizzix bigz heart dies to stamp the Lili Of The Valley sentiment adding shabby white Fran-tage and cut a Spellbinders scalloped circle for the Happy Birthday sentiment which is from Cuddly Buddly.
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front.
A closer shot of the flower arrangement.
The flower arrangement consists of daisies and carnations from The Ribbon Girl and the white Kort & Godt rolled roses, lace and Fran-tage is from Live & Love Crafts. The 15mm white roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have Fran-taged the 15mm roses with shabby pink embossing enamel.
I have added 5mm pink pearls to the centre of the Kort & Godt roses and placed a couple of pink pearl headed pins in the arrangement.
I have put a few dots onto Tilda's cheeks with an Inkssentials opaque white pen and added
 Glamour Dust to the water.
I hope you like my card!
I will be sending her to a special friend for her birthday.
I am entering my card into the following super challenges:
