New Challenge At Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Goes.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
This post is scheduled as I will be enjoying a break away with my Hubby.

It's time for a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is 
Anything Goes.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are;

I have made a pocket tag featuring For You Tilda from The Lost & Found Collection 2014.
The fabulous tutorial is in Magnolia Ink N0 1 2014.

I die cut a CArt Us large circle with Neenah cardstock and stamped  For You Tilda onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and inked the edges with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I have coloured Tilda with Prisma color and Polychromos pencils.
I die cut a piece of white card and design paper with a Sizzix scalloped circle and adhered the paper to the card and placed the image onto it.

The Pocket.

I made the pocket with Crafters Companion Kraft cardstock. I applied white Gesso around the pocket  and sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love crafts around the top.
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Summer basics from Live & Love Crafts. 
I have inked around the edge of the papers with tea dye distress ink and distressed them with a Tim Holtz Tonic Studios paper distresser.
The pretty lace is from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
The rose organza trim along the top is from The Ribbon Girl. 
The butterflies are Memory Box Isabella. I die cut them with Vintage Summer Basics paper and inked the edges with Tea dye distress ink. I adhered 3mm white pearls to their centres and wings.
The flower arrangement consists of a 30mm Ivory rose, 20mm blue roses, 15mm brown roses and marshmallow frosted berries.
All the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the frosted berries are from Live & Love Crafts. 
For the foliage I used 300gsm white Conqueror card to die cut Cheery Lynn pine branches and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.
I painted some Gesso onto the wooden heart button and tied the bow with hemp twine.
The wooden button and twine are from The Ribbon Girl. 
The For You sentiment is a Papermania occasions sentiment. 
I inked the edges of the sentiment with tea dye distress ink.
I tied a piece of sky blue shabby seam binding from Live & Love Crafts through the punched holes at the top and tied it into a bow.

Here is a picture of the pocket with the tag removed from inside.

I made the tag with Kraft cardstock and layered it with the design paper.
I added some white 300gsm Conqueror card and threaded a loop of satin ribbon to pull out the tag from inside the pocket.

Here is a close up of adorable  For You Tilda.

I have added Ranger white liquid pearls on and around the bouquet and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I adhered 3 5mm white pearls to the side of the image.

I hope you like my pocket tag?
