Tilda In Evening Dress And Our Final Challenge Of 2014 At Simply Magnolia.

Good evening, crafty blogger's.
Sorry! I'm very late with my DT post for Simply Magnolia I have been busy making commissioned Christmas cards for hubby's work colleagues. I finally finished the last one today. 
 Our new challenge is Anything Goes and runs for a whole month through until the new year.
We have three wonderful sponsors for this challenge;
Stamp & Create
The ribbon Girl
The Rubber Buggy

I have another commissioned card to share!
I used Tilda In Evening Dress from the Little Circus Moscow Collection 2013.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out and matted using a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers.
Other dies used are La - La - land heart doily border and filigree corner. Doohickey bloomy tag, Marianne Designs medium bow stars, Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Cheery Lynn pine branches.
I lightly sanded the papers and inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I used shabby white ruffle trim from Live & Love Crafts across the bottom of the card and adhered 6mm white flat backed pearl string along the centre.

I used a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts for the arrangement.
I placed a blue brad through the centre of the bow and painted a small amount of modelling paste around the edges.

I used a bronze vintage frame from The Ribbon Girl. Painted it with white Gesso and adhered 3mm and 5mm pearls onto it.
I used Pion studio of memories letters for the name

Here is a close up of Tilda.
I added glamour dust to the stars and used white liquid pearls for the bubbles and around the image.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.

We would love you to come and join in with our challenge.
