Tilda With Rose Basket And A New Challenge At Lovey Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well? 
I can't believe we are in February already.
We have had lots of snow here in Derbyshire and the temperature is freezing.
Anyway..............Today we have a new challenge starting at  Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia
This time our challenge theme is Love or Hearts.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I was asked to make a Birthday card so I chose to use hearts on it.

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 Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Designs Anjas vintage decoration and clock. La - La - Lands heart doily border and cherry blossom branch. Joy Crafts lattice heart and Billes flourishes.
I inked all the die cuts with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Ebay. You can find it HERE

For the floral arrangement I used a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.
The heart shaped pins are also from The Ribbon Girl.
The butterfly is Magnolia butterfly kit. I coloured it with Polychromos pencils and adhered a 2mm white pearl to each wing.
I coated the shabby bark heart from Live & Love Crafts with Snow - Tex. I then painted it with white Gesso and sprinkled glamour dust onto it while the paint was wet.
The Mum letters are cut from a sheet of Pion studio of memories paper.
The sentiment is everyday grungy from Lili Of The Valley.

Here is a close up pic of adorable Tilda With Rose Basket.
I adhered a few 2mm white pearls around the image and used Ranger white liquid pearls on the flowers. I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

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

We would love you to come and join in with our 2 weekly challenge.
