Tilda With Peanut.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
This time I have made an Autumn card featuring Tilda With Peanut for a friends granddaughter who is 10 years old tomorrow.
I have made the card base with 300gsm white conqueror card.
The papers are Maja Design "Walking In The Forest" from Dies To Die For.
I have distressed the papers with a Tim Holtz paper distresser and matted them onto
 Woodware recycled card.
I have stamped Tilda With Peanut onto a Spellbinders floral oval with Memento "Toffee Crunch" ink and coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.
 I have inked around the edges of the floral oval with Tim Holtz"Tea Dye" distress ink and Frantaged around the image with Shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts
The lace at the top of the card is from TRG and the lace across the middle of the card is from
I have placed the image on top of some cheese cloth from Ebay.
The metal filigree corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have Frantaged it with shabby white embossing enamel.
The butterfy die cut in the bottom right corner is a freebie from Simply Cards & Papercraft and I have Frantaged it with Shabby white embossing enamel.
Lots of Fran-tage. Lol!
The other gorgeous butterflies are form the Maja Design paper pad.
The sentiment is computer generated.
The flower arrangement consists of a 25mm tea rose, 15mm orange roses, 15mm mocha roses, gypsophilia and 10mm white roses all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The Kort & Godt rolled roses and tiny apple are from Live & Love Crafts.
I have adhered a 5mm pearl to the centre of each of the rolled roses and placed a few woodland branches between the flowers using a Martha Stewart punch.
I have coloured the tea rose with "Tea Dye" distress ink.
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front.

Aren't they adorable?
I have added Glamour Dust to Tilda's hairband and edges of her scarf.
I hope you like my Autumn card?
