New Year Sakura Tilda.

Hello, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well? A big welcome to my new followers. Thank you.
I am here today to share a commissioned 18th Birthday card featuring New Year Sakura Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013.

I have cut a Spellbinders opulent oval with Neenah cardstock and stamped New Year Sakura Tilda onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured Tilda with Prismacolor and Poiychromos pencils.
I have inked around the opulent oval with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts. 

I have made the card base with 300gsm white Conqueror card.
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics from Live & Love Crafts. 
I have inked the edge of the papers with tea dye distress ink.
The white doily and pretty lace are from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
The white rose organza trim along the bottom of the card is from The Ribbon Girl. 
I have placed some cheese cloth to the centre of the card and adhered the image to it with double sided sticky pads.
The resin frame is from The ribbon Girl and I have sprayed it with some Plasti-kote 
white spray gloss and adhered a piece of Maja Design paper to the back. I die cut the numbers with Memory Box classic numbers and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.
The dragonflies are Magnolia Doohickey. I have Frantaged them with shabby white embossing enamel and placed 5mm white pearls along their centres.
I tied a bow through the wooden heart button with hemp twine.
The wooden heart button and hemp twine are from The Ribbon Girl. 
The grungy sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley. I have inked the edges of the sentiment with tea dye distress ink.

For the flower arrangement I have used a 30mm wild rose and brown 15mm roses from 
Wild Orchid Crafts and Kort & Godt rolled roses, white chrysanthemums and beaded berries from 
Live & Love Crafts. I have adhered a white 5mm pearl to the centre of each of the rolled roses.
For the foliage I have used Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches.
I inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.
I tied a bow with a piece of white shabby seam binding from Live & Love Crafts through the top of the silver key charm. The key charm is from The Ribbon Girl. 

Here is a closer look at New Year Sakura Tilda.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

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

I hope the recipient likes her card and I hope you do too?
