New Challenge At Marvelous Magnolia...................Newest Or Favourite Tilda.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
Today is the start of a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is 
Newest Or Favourite Tilda.
We want to see your cards/projects with the newest or your favourite Tilda on them.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Sandy from
Live & Love Crafts. 

I have chosen Libra Tilda from the Zodiac 2014 Collection.
It's a shaped card.
I hope you like it?

I have cut a Spellbinders Stately Circle with Neenah cardstock and stamped Libra Tilda from Sirstampalot onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured Libra Tilda with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I inked the edges of 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 made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 from Cuttingedgecrafts. 
The pretty papers are Maja Designs Vintage Autumn Basics from Live & Love Crafts.
I distressed the centre piece of paper with a Tim Holtz paper distresser and folded the corner over placing a 3mm blue pearl onto it.
I have die cut a Cherry Lynn nautical doily, inked around the edges with tea dye distress ink and adhered it to the card under the papers.
The rose organza trim along the bottom of the card is from The Ribbon Girl. 
The lace is from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE.
I placed a piece of cheese cloth behind the image.
The fence is Magnolia lovely fence. I have inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.
The butterfly on the fence is punched out of the design paper with a Woodware tiny butterfly punch.
The brass dragonfly charm is from my craft stash. I have Frantaged it with shabby white embossing enamel.

The flower arrangement consists of a 30mm ivory rose, 20mm pale blue roses, white tulips and 15mm white roses all from Wild Orchid Crafts The Kort & Godt chrysanthemums and marshmallow frosted berries are from Live & Love Crafts. 
For the foliage I have die cut Cherry Lynn pine branches and punched Martha Stewart woodland branches. I inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.

A close up of Libra Tilda.
I coloured the grass around tilda. This was my first attempt. Lol!!!
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with the design paper and a Spellbinders Stately Circle.

I hope you will come and join in with our challenge.
