Tilda With A Small Gift.

Hello, crafty bloggers.
I was asked to make a card for a lady who's very special friend was having a Birthday today.
"Pink's and purple's" she said and with only one day's notice. Phew!!!!
Here is the card that I made.
I have stamped Tilda with Memento Toffee Crunch ink and cut her out using a Spellbinders large Floral Oval die.
I have coloured the image with Polychromos pencils and inked around the frame with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distresss ink adding a white 3mm pearl to the top, sides and bottom of the frame.
The image has been surrounded with shabby white Fran~tage and I dotted Tilda's cheeks with Inkssentials opaque white pen.
The Maja Design "Vintage Spring Basics" papers have also been inked around the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and then I matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
I Love this card as it goes with any design papers.
The corner filigree from Wild Orchid Crafts has been Fran~taged with Shabby white embossing enamel and the Memory Box Pippi butterflies have been Fran~taged with
shabby pink embossing enamel.
I have coloured the centres of the butterflies with  a pink carnation Promarker and the lovely diamond lace at the bottom is from The Ribbon Girl.
I have used a selection of flowers which are a 30mm pink rose and 15mm purple roses from
Wild Orchid Crafts.
 The white rolled Kort & Godt roses, Kort & Godt daisies, beaded pearls and pink rose buds are from The Ribbon Girl.
I have added a pink 5mm pearl to the centre of the rolled roses.
The pink pearls are also from The Ribbon Girl.
I have tied the lilac bow with 15mm organza ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons.
The birdcage charm is from Live & Love Crafts.
The sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva.  
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front.
Her is a close up picture taken of Tilda With A Small Gift.
Isn't she adorable!

I have added some Snow~Tex to the flower's and the to birdcage charm.
I would love to know what you think of my creation!
