Tilda In Evening Dress And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well!?!?
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and for the next fortnight our challenge theme is FLOWERS.
Lets see some flowers on your Magnolia card/project.
We do not have a sponsor for our challenge this fortnight. Instead we are having a Guest DT spot.

I have made another commissioned card. An 80th Birthday card.

I used Tilda In Evening Dress. I have coloured her so many times now I reckon I could colour her blind folded. Lol!!!
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out 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 Autumn Basics papers. I have lightly sanded the papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anjas vintage decoration and clock. La - La - land heart doily border and cherry blossom branch. Joy Crafts lets party cake and Billes flourishes.
My super bloggy friend spoilt me at Christmas with 8 Tim Holtz mini distress inks and mini blenders so I chose to use chipped sapphire to ink all the die cuts.
The pretty lace is from Ebay.
The bronze vintage frame is from The Ribbon Girl I painted the frame with white Gesso and then I rubbed it with Chipped sapphire distress ink embellishing the frame with a 5mm blue pearl and 3mm white pearls. The numbers are die cut using Memory Box classic numbers.

I used a selection of flowers and beaded berries from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts.
The decorative pins are from Wild orchid Crafts.

Another close up picture of the Joy Crafts lets party cake.
The 5mm blue pearls are from my crafty stash.

A close look at Tilda.
I used Ranger white liquid pearls around the image and in Tilda's hair.
I used glossy accents on the champagne glass and 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.

I hope you like what you see?
