Unsunny Sky Tilda.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are all well?
Today I have made a Birthday card featuring Unsunny Sky Tilda.
I have made the 6"x6" 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 edges of the papers with Tim Holtz paper distresser and matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
I have stamped Unsunny Sky Tilda onto Neenah cardstock with Memento "rich cocoa" ink and coloured her with Polychromos pencils.
I cut her out with a Sizzix oval die and inked the edges with Tim Holtz " tea dye" distress ink..
The lace at the top is from The Ribbon Girl and the organza rose trim at the bottom is from Live & Love Crafts.
The butterfly die is Memory Box "Pippi."
I have Frantaged the butterfly with shabby blue embossing enamel from Craft Obsessions and coloured the centre with a blue Promarker.
I have added a few tiny blue rhinestones to the centre too.
The sentiment is a freebie from Birds Cards.
I have printed the sentiment onto Neenah cardstock and cut it out with a small Spellbinders floral oval die cut. I have inked around the edges with "tea dye" distress ink and Frantaged around the sentiment with shabby blue embossing enamel.
For the flower arrangement I have used white chrysanthemum's and pale blue 20mm roses from The Ribbon Girl. The frosted beads and white poppies are from Live & Love Crafts
The Magnolia blue beaded berries are from CraftsULove.
The umbrella charm is from The Ribbon Girl.
I have decorated inside the card with Woodware recycled card, Maja Design paper and a Spellbinders floral oval which I have inked around the edges with "tea dye" distress ink.

I have added ArtDeco Glamour Dust to the rain drops, frill on Tilda's pants and on her shoes.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with Inkssentials opaque white pen and placed a few 3mm white pearls around the image.
I hope you like my card?
