Tilda Hiding Rose Bouquet And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia.

Good morning, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well? 
At long last we have central heating and hot water after 10 days of waiting for the boiler to be fixed.
Today we have a new challenge starting at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is
CAS or Fully Loaded. A nice easy one!
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I have another commissioned card to share for this challenge and I chose fully loaded.

I used Tilda Hiding Rose Bouquet from the Lost & Found 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval which I have matted onto 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 Coffee In The Arbour papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Lands heart doily border and cherry blossom branches. Marianne designs clock and heart balloon. Joy Crafts lattice heart, Billes flourishes and banner..
The Happy Birthday sentiment is Joy Crafts.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink and lightly sanded the papers.

I used a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts.
The bronze vintage ornate oval frame is from The Ribbon Girl. I have painted it with white Gesso and adhered 3 and 5mm white pearls into various recesses around the frame.
I have die cut the 60 with Memory Box classic numbers.

Here is a close look at Tilda.
I added glamour dust to Tilda's apron and used Ranger white liquid pearls on the bouquet.
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.

Our challenge is 2 weekly and we would love you to come and join in.
My teamies have designed some gorgeous creations. Why not pop on over for a peek?
