Tilda In Evening Dress.

Happy New Year crafty blogger's.
I hope you all had a great Christmas?
 I have made a shaped card featuring Tilda In Evening Dress.
This is my first commissioned card for 2014.
I have used Neenah cardstock to die cut a Spellbinders opulent oval and stamped Tilda In Evening dress from the new Little Circus Moscow collection 2013 with memento rich cocoa ink onto it. I have coloured Tilda with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I inked the edges of the opulent oval with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink.
I used pink card to cut a Spellbinders floral oval and adhered the opulent oval onto it. I have inked around the edges of the floral oval with spun sugar distress ink and added white 2mm pearls to it.
I have made the shaped card with GoKreate frilly frames #2 and 300gsm white Conqueror card.
The pretty papers are Maja Design Sofiero from Crafts U Love.
The white doily and gorgeous white lace are from Ebay.
I have added pink 5mm pearls on the doily and the white vintage metal corner.
The white vintage corner is from Live & Love Crafts.
The bark stars were sent to my from my super bloggy friend. I believe she bought them from
I have added Frantage shabby white embossing enamel onto the stars.
The Frantage is also from Live & Love crafts.
I have computer generated the sentiment in Word using Harrington Font 14 and cut around it with a smaller Spellbinders opulent oval. I sprinked some shabby white embossing enamel around the sentiment and inked the edges with spun sugar distress ink.
The flower arrangement consists of white chrysanthemums, pale pnk 20mm roses and white Kort & Godt chrysanthemums from The Ribbon Girl. Pink poppies and white frosted berries from
In between the arrangement I have placed Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart
woodland branches.
I inked the edges of the pine branches with spun sugar distress ink.

I sprinkled some Frantage shabby pink embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the image and added some Ranger white liquid pearls for the champagne bubbles.
I have adhered a few 2mm white pearls around Tilda and dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
Inside the card is decorated with Maja Design paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.
I hope you like my creation?
I am entering my card into the following super challenges:
I have my fingers crossed that this year that I will be making a lot more commissioned cards!?!?
