Tilda With Leo The Lion And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good morning, crafty blogger's.
Today we have a new challenge starting at Simply Magnolia and our challenge theme for the next 2 weeks is Vintage or Shabby Chic.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Sandy from Live & Love Crafts with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I have another commissioned card to share.
I used Tilda With Leo The Lion from Animal of the Year 2014 Collection.

The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders decorative elements label 1.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate XXL frame frilly #5 which was a surprise Christmas present from my very special bloggy friend. She spoils me every Birthday and Christmas.
I used Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border, Little Darlings lovely view Marianne Designs clock and medium bow stars. Doohickey jungle leaves and Memory Box classic numbers.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The rose organza trim is from The Ribbon Girl.

I used a selection of flowers and beaded berries from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The clay heart is from Live & Love Crafts.
The everyday grungy sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and again you can see the gorgeous little green flower from The Ribbon Girl.

A close look at Tilda and Leo,
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and dotted Leo's with Ranger white liquid pearls. I used glossy accents on Leo's nose but, it doesn't show up in this photo.

Inside the card is decorated with Maja paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

We would love you to come and join in with our challenge. My teamies have designed some gorgeous creations. Why not pop on over for a peek?

I am entering my card into the following super challenge:
