Lemon Tilda And A New Challenge At Marvelous Magnolia

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
it's time for a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is
Tilda plus any sentiment.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are

I used Lemon Tilda from the Pink Lemonade 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders stately circle.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frames frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers. 
I inked the papers and dies with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily and pine branches. Marianne Designs Creatables clock, La-La-Lands filigree corner and steampunk heart cogs. Magnolia Doohickey lovely fence and bloomy tag.
The ivory rose organza trim is from The Ribbon Girl.
For the tiny butterflies I used a Woodware punch and adhered tiny blue rhinestones along their centres.
I used a blue brad to secure the clock hands and adhered a blue 5mm pearl onto the filigree corner.

Here is the card with the bloomy tag removed from the Corps mini bag.
The sentiment is everyday grungy message from Lili Of The Valley. The bow and string pearls that I have tied through the top of the tag are from my local craft store.

For the flower arrangements I have used a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts.

Here is a close up of Lemon Tilda. I love her! 
I used Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and applied a little Ranger frosted ice stickles to her apron frill.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with the design paper and a Spellbinders opulent oval.

I hope you like my card?
