Tilda With Rose Basket And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Hello, crafty bloggers.
Today we have a new challenge starting at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is;
Clean and Simple or Fully Loaded.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is;

My card is fully loaded.
This is a commissioned card for a young lady's Birthday.

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

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Magnolia papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border and filigree corner.
Cheery Lynn french pastry doily, Marianne Designs creatables clock, Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Doohickey jolly tag.
I have inked the papers and die cuts with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink.
I hand stiched the paper in the centre. Not that you can see much of it. Lol!!!
The lace across the bottom of the card is from a friend of my Mother's and the shabby ruffle trim is from Live & Love Crafts.
The resin owl embellishment is from Hobby Craft.

Here I have taken a photo of the jolly tag removed from the mini corps bag.
The sentiment is everyday grungy message from Lili Of The valley. I have frantaged the tag with shabby white embossing enamel.
I tied the bow with some really pretty lace which my Mother's friend also gave to me and added 3mm white pearl string through the centre.

I used a selection of flowers for the arrangement from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts.

A close up of adorabe Tilda With Rose Basket.
I sprinked some shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added Ranger white liquid pearls to the roses.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
The butterfly is one I have cut out from Maja Design vintage spring basics papers.

Inside the card is decorated with Magnolia paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

I absolutely love Tilda With Rose Basket. She has to be my favourite Magnolia stamp to date.

I am entering my creation into the following super challenges;
