New Challenge At Marvelous Magnolia - Ribbon Or Bow.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
We have a new challenge starting today at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is ribbon or bow.
We want to see ribbon or bows on your cards/projects.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are;
The Rubber Buggy 
Dies R Us
Scrapbooking Boutique

I have made a shaped card featuring Tilda With Fantasy Flower from the Lost & Found Collection 2014.

I have die cut a cArt-us large circle with Neenah cardstock and stamped Tilda With Fantasy Flower onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I inked around the circle with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the image.
I have cut a Sizzix scalloped circle with Maja Design Vintage Spring basics from Dies To Die For and matted the image onto it.

I have made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and Go Kreate large frame frilly #2.
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring basics.
The white doily is from Ebay and the pretty lace is from my local craft store.
I have adhered 3mm white pearls onto the doily.
I have die cut a Cheery Lynn nautical doily die and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink and adhered it to the centre of the card. I placed some cheese cloth on top of the doily and adhered the image to the centre with Woodware 2mm double sided sticky tape.
I have cut Magnolia Doohickey dragonflies with Vintage Spring Basics paper and inked the edges of them with tea dye distress ink placing a row of 5mm white pearls down the centre of the large dragonfly and 3mm white pearls down the centres of the small dragonflies.
the resin owl is from Hobby Craft and the white metal corner is from Live & Love Crafts. 
I have tied a double bow with white shabby seam binding also from Live & Love Crafts and placed a green 15mm rose in the centre.
The arrangement of flowers consists of  a 30mm wild ivory rose, 25mm wild ivory roses, 15mm green roses and 15mm brown roses. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
I placed a 5mm white pearl in the centre of each of the 25mm wild roses.
For the foliage I have die cut a couple of Cheery Lynn pine branches and inked them with tea dye distress ink.

A close up of adorable Tilda With Fantasy Flower.
I have added Ranger white liquid pearls to the flowers and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I just loved colouring her.

I have decorated inside the card with Vintage Spring Basics paper and a cArt-us large circle which I matted onto a Sizzix scalloped circle with the design paper.

I gave this card to my beautiful Mum for Mother's day and she loved it.
