On to my card.
I chose die cuts as my favourite embellishment and have made a Mother's day card.

I used A Gift For You Tilda from the Turning Leaves 2012 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 La - La - Land heart doily border and cherry blossom branch.Marianne Design clock. magnolia Doohickey bride bow and Joy Crafts Billes flourishes.
I have inked all of the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Ebay. The white shabby ruffle trim is from Live & Love Crafts.The 3mm pearl string and resin dove are from The Ribbon Girl.

I used a selection of flowers and beaded berries from Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts.
I stamped the butterfly from the Magnolia butterfly kit with rich cocoa ink then coloured it with pencils and embellished the wings with Ranger white liquid pearts.
The resin frame is from The Ribbon Girl. I painted it with white Gesso.
The cherub is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have also painted it with white Gesso and lightly rubbed over it with tea dye distress ink.
The sentiment is a freebie from Birds Cards

Here is a close look at Tilda.
I surrounded the image and dotted the present with a few white liquid pearls.

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