Tilda With Millie The Mouse And Millie's Bobbin.

Hello, crafty blogger's.
I have made a card featuring Tilda With Millie The Mouse and masked them with Millie's Bobbin from the Animals Of The Year 2014 Collection.
As soon as I saw these stamps I knew I had to add them to my collection. They are so adorable.
Here is my card.

I have masked Tilda With Millie The Mouse onto Millie's Bobbin with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock.
Both stamps are from Sirstampalot. 
I have coloured the images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I sprinkled some Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the image and matted it onto design paper.
The sentiment is Magnolia Forever Best Friends text which was a gift from my friend.
I have stamped the text onto Neenah cardstock with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I inked around the edges of the text with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and adhered it behind the image and added 3 white 5mm pearls.

I have cut the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 from Cuttingdegecrafts. 
The papers are Maja Design Walking In The Forest from Dies To Die For. 
I have inked the edges of the papers with tea dye distress ink.
I die cut a Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily from Tilda's Town and inked around it with tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
The tags in the top of the card are from the Maja design paper pad. I have punched a hole into each of the tags and tied a bow through them with handmade white shabby seam binding from 
I  have cut out the butterflies which are also from the design paper pad.

For the flower arrangements I have used a 35mm cream trellis rose, 20mm white roses, 15mm brown tone roses, 15mm orange tone roses and white stamens.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
I have painted a little white Gesso onto the flowers.
The mini wooden spool is from Sirstampalot I have wound some embroidery cotton around the spool.

A close up of Tidla With Millie Mouse sat on Millie's Bobbin.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and added Ranger white liquid pearls inside Millie's ears.

Inside the card is decorated with the design paper and a Spellbinders label one die cut.

I hope you like my card?
