Gucci Tilda.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I have had quite a few orders to make cards for the next month so I am going to be very busy. I have also sold seven cards in my Etsy shop which I am so thrilled about as The first lot that I put on there  five months ago didn't sell at all.
This card that I have made is the first of my orders. I have made it for a young lady called Katie.
It's a shaped card featuring Gucci Tilda. Perfect for a teenager!
Here is the card

I have used GoKreate large frames frilly#2 to make the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and also used the frames to cut out the papers.
The pretty papers are Maja Design "Sofiero" from Dies To Die For.
I have sanded around the edges of the papers.
The white doily is from Ebay.
The gorgeous lace is from The Ribbon Girl and the white vintage metal corner which I have frantaged is from Live & Love Crafts.
I used Neenah cardstock to cut out a Spellbinders beaded oval and stamped  Gucci Tilda onto it with Memento Mocha ink.
I have coloured Gucci Tilda with Polychromos pencils and Frantaged around the frame and image with shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts
I used Sofiero paper to cut out a Spellbinders floral oval, sanded the edges and adhered the beaded oval onto it.
The sentiment is computer generated with Harrington Font 16.
I cut it out with a smaller Spellbinders floral oval for the sentiment.
I have added some shabby white embossing enamel around the edges and around the sentiment.

For the arrangement of flowers I used 25mm wild roses and 15mm white roses from
 The 20mm pink roses are from The Ribbon Girl. The white feathers and cute trendy handbag charm are from
I have painted a little Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts onto the flower arrangements.
The butterfly is Memory Box "Pippi." I have used shabby white embossing enamel to frantage it and coloured the centre with a blossom pink Flexmarker.

I have adhered a string of white 2mm beads from Live & Love Crafts round the image and added ArtDeco Glamour Dust to Tilda's belt, frill on her trousers and sunglasses in her bag.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I have decorated the inside of the cad to compliment the front with Sofiero paper and a GoKreate frilly frame. I inked around the frilly frame with Tim Holtz "Spun Sugar" distress ink.
I hope you like my creation?
I am entering my creation into the following super challenges.
