Bubbling Tilda with my favourite things.

Good evening, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well and enjoying the sunshine!
I have made a Birthday card for a very special friend featuring
Bubbling Tilda with my favourite things that I love to use on my cards.
This card is 8"x8" square. Bigger than my usual 6"x6" cards.
I have stamped Bubbling Tilda onto Neenah cardstock with Memento "Toffee Crunch" ink and coloured her with Polychromos pencils surrounding the image with shabby white Fran~tage.
The Fran~tage is from Live & Love Crafts.
I have used the new Maja Design Sofiero papers from Dies To Die For.  They are beautiful.
I have inked the edges of Woodware recycled card with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink and
matted the papers onto the card.
The doily that I have used was given to me by a restaurant owner. Hubby and I had a meal one year for our anniversary and I managed to get my hands on a few. This is the first time I have used one as I think they are a bit too big for a 6"x6" card.
What a lovely lady.
I used Tim Holtz Butterflight die to cut some recycled card and positioned it onto the card then I cut another with white card, cut out the butterflies and Fran~taged them with shabby white embossing enamel adding 5mm pink pearls to the centres.
The pretty lace and 5mm pink pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
The rose organza trim is from Live & Love Crafts.
I printed the sentiment which is a freebie from Desert Diva and used a smaller Spellbinders floral oval die to cut it out surrounding the sentiment with shabby white Fran~tage and inked the edges with Tim Holtz "Spun Sugar" distress ink.
I have used a Doohickey Butterfly die which my super bloggy friend sent me and Fran~taged it with shabby white embossing enamel adding a 20mm pink rose to the centre.
I have used a selection of flowers for the arrangement.
The white daisies which I have Fran~taged and the 20mm pink roses are from The Ribbon Girl.
The pink poppies are from Live & Love Crafts.
The Magnolia pink beaded berries are from Crafts U Love and the white stamens are from
I have Fran~taged a Memory Box Pippi butterfly and coloured the centre with a pale pink Flexmarker.

I have added DecoArt Glamour Dust to Tilda's wings and used Ranger Glossy Accents
on the bubbles.
Inside the card has been decorated with Maja Design Sofiero paper.
I hope you like my creation!
