New Challenge Marvelous Magnolia - Seeing Red.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I am so thrilled to have been selected as new DT member at Marvelous Magnolia. 
Thank you Rina!
Our challenge this time is Seeing Red. We want to see red on your cards/projects.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is...............

Here is my first DT card.

I have made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 .The frames are from Cuttingedgecrafts. 
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics from Live & Love Crafts. 
The white doily and lovely lace is from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
I have cut a Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily, inked around the edges and adhered it to the centre of the card.
I have used Neenah cardstock to cut a Spellbinders opulent oval and stamped Tilda In Evening Dress from the Little Circus Moscow Collection 2013 onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have inked the edges of the opulent oval with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and adhered it to the centre of the card with sticky pads.
The butterflies are Memory Box Pippi. I have frantaged them with shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts and coloured their centres with a red Promarker.
I placed 3mm red pearls along the centres too.
The resin dove is from Hobbycraft and the filigree corner is La-La-Land. I have inked the edges of the corner and placed a 3mm red pearl onto it.
The Doohickey bloomy tag was a surprise Christmas gift from my super bloggy friend


Here is the card with the tag removed.
I have inked around the edges of the tag with tea dye distress ink and frantaged around the sentiment with shabby white embossing enamel. I have tied the bow with white shabby seam binding from
The sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley. 
I have placed another filigree corner behind the tag.

A close of of the flower arrangement.
I have used  white Kort & Godt chrysanthemums, rolled roses and frosted berries all from
A 25mm wild ivory rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
For the foliage I have used Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches.
I have inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.

A close up of Tilda In Evening Dress.
I have surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and 2mm white pearls.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with Maja Design paper and a opulent oval.
