New Challenge Marvelous Magnolia - Add Some Green.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
We have a new challenge starting today at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our theme is
Add Some Green.
We want you to add some green on your cards/projects.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are................
The Rubber Buggy 
Stamping Tilda 
Scrapbook Boutique 

For this challenge I have made a shaped Mother's day card featuring Tilda Hiding Rose Bouquet from the new Lost & Found Collection 2013.

I have cut a Sizzix circle with Neenah cardstock and stamped Tilda With Rose Bouquet from Sirstampalot onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured Tilda with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I have inked around the edge of the circle with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and sprinkled some Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the image.

I have made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and Lifestyle 
Quickutz nesting frame #10.
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics from Live & Love Crafts.
I have inked around the edges of the papers with tea dye distress ink.
I die cut a Cheery Lynn Nautical doily and also inked around the edge with tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
I have die cut a Sizzix scalloped circle with the Maja Design paper and adhered the image on top placing some cheese cloth underneath.
I have die cut a Memory Box Isabella butterfly with Maja Design paper and die cut a Memory Box Pippi butterfly with white card and Frantaged Pippi with shabby white embossing enamel placing 2 white 3mm pearls down the centre.
The fence is Doohickey Lovely Fence. I have inked around the edge with tea dye distress ink. The tiny butterfly on the fence that I have punched with Maja paper is a Woodware punch.

The sentiment is a freebie from 
I have cut out the sentiment with a circle die and inked around the edge with tea dye distress ink.
I cut a small Spellbinders scalloped die with Maja Design paper and adhered the sentiment to the centre and then onto the inner piece of the Nautical doily die.

The flower arrangement consists of Kort & Godt rolled roses and chrysanthemums from
I have adhered a 5mm white pearl to the centre of each rolled rose.
A 30mm ivory wild rose, 15mm olive green roses and white tulips all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
For the foliage I have used Cherry Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches. I inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.

A close up of Tilda With Rose Bouquet.
I have added ArtDeco glamour dust to tilda's frills on her dress and dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with Maja Design paper and a scalloped circle die cut.
