Summer Wedding Tilda and a Sketch.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are all well!
I just want to say thank you so much for the lovely comments I received last week.
Today I have made a card featuring Summer Wedding Tilda.
I have followed a sketch by Kirsty-Anne.
You can find this fabulous sketch over on The Sketchy Girls Challenge Blog.
Here is the sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch.
I made a 6"x6" card using 300gsm white Conqueror card.
The pretty papers are Maja Design Sofiero from Dies To Die For. I have inked the edges with Tim Holtz
"Spun Sugar" distress ink and matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
I have stamped Summer Wedding Tilda onto  Neenah card with a Memento "Coffee" ink pad and cut her out with a Spellbinders floral oval frame.
I have coloured Tilda with Polychromos pencils and surrounded the image with Fran~tage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts. The edges of the frame have been inked with
"Spun Sugar" distress ink and I have added a white 3mm pearl to the top. bottom and sides of the floral frame.
The pretty lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
For the flower arrangement I have used a 25mm light Ivory Tea Rose, 15mm white roses and white stamens all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The pink 20mm roses are from The Ribbon Girl and the pink poppies are from Live & Love Crafts.
I have hung a silver heart charm from the pink rose with 2mm silver plated curb chain attaching the charm with a silver plated jump ring.
The chain and jump rings are from Ebay and the charm is from The Ribbon Girl.
The die cut butterflies are Memory Box "Pippi." I have Fran~taged them with shabby white embossing enamel and coloured the centres with a pink Flexmarker.
I have Fran~taged a silver metal filigree corner with shabby white embossing enamel and placed it in the top left corner of the card.
The metal corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The Magnolia wedding sentiment is stamped with "Coffee" Memento ink onto Neenah card, cut out and inked around the edges with "spun Sugar" distress ink.
Inside the card has been decorated with Sofiero paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.
I have painted a little Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts onto the flowers and added a 5mm pink pearl to the centre of the larger rose.
Here is a close shot of Summer Wedding Tilda.
I have added ArtDeco Glamour Dust to the flowers in Tilda's hair and bouquet.
 I used Ranger white liquid pearls from Live & Love Crafts in among the bouquet and flowers in Tilda's hair.
I computer generated the sentiment inside the card in Word using Harrington Font 18.
I hope you like my card!
I am entering my card into the following super challenges:
Thank you for stopping by and a big thank you for all the lovely comments.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
