Love Love Love Tilda Anniversary card.

Hello, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are all well!
We had lots of rain and isolated thunder storms all day yesterday here in Derbyshire.
 Well at least the lawn and plants got a good watering and today is bright sunshine and very warm again
I was asked to make an Anniversary card for a gentleman to give to his
Son and Daughter in Law.
They are celebrating their Wedding Anniversary next month.
Here is the card.
I have used a 6"x6" card and added Magnolia Doohickey - Vintage Box Lacing Coffee from my super bloggy friend to the front and inside end of the card. I distressed the edges with
Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink.
I have stamped Love Love Love Love Tilda onto a Spellbinders Floral Oval with Memento ink and coloured her with Polychromos pencils. I surrounded the image with Fran~tage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts  and distressed the frame with "Tea Dye" distress ink placing it onto a piece of cheese cloth.
The papers that I have used are Magnolia  "With Love" Arrow Heart and
"With Love" Carte Postale.
I have Inked the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink and matted them onto Woodware recycled card placing a white doily behind them.
The flowers that I used for the arrangements are 30mm ivory roses and 15mm cream roses from
The white rolled roses, Kort & Godt chrysanths  and silver heart charm are from
I can't remember where I got the circle of beaded pearls but, they were in my craft stash.
I have computer generated the sentiment in Word using Harrington font 18, inked the edges
 and matted it onto recycled card.
I have added a small amount of Fran~tage to the Tim Holtz love ticket.
I have Fran~taged a Magnolia Doohickey butterfly also from my super bloggy friend with shabby white embossing enamel and added a 15mm cream rose to the centre.
I have painted some Snow ~ Tex from Live & Love Crafts onto the flowers and added a 3mm red pearl to the centres of the rolled roses. The white vintage metal corner also from
 Live & Love Crafts has been Fran~taged with shabby white embossing enamel.
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front.
A close up picture of adorable Love Love Love Tilda.
I have adhered a string of white pearls from Live & Love Crafts  around the inside of the frame.
I hope the couple like their card!
I am entering the card into the following super challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for all the lovely comments I receive.
Have a sunny day!
