Lemon Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Good, afternoon crafty blogger's
I hope you are well?
A huge thank you to my new followers. I am thrilled you like my creations.
Today we start our new fortnightly challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia and this time around our challenge theme is.......................
our wonderful sponsor is 2 lovely ladies Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I have made another Birthday card.

I used Lemon Tilda from the Pink Lemonade 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval and mounted onto a piece of cheesecloth and 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 from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Joy Crafts edge border 5, banner and Billes flourishes. La - La - Land heart doily border. cherry blossom branches and build a bee. Marianne Design clock. Spellbinders shapeabilites butterflies and Cheery Lynn french pastry doily.
I used Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink on the edges of the die cuts.
The pretty lace is from Live & Love Crafts and the 10mm double row Ivory pearl trim is from
The sentiment is Joy crafts English banner text.

I used a selection of flowers consisting of a 30mm light Ivory rose, 15mm green and yellow roses from Wild Orchid Crafts 20mm pale pink roses and Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums from 
The white pearl berries are Magnolia and the white crown pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts

A couple of close up's of the Spellbinders butterfly and La- La - Lands build a bee.
I have added ArtDeco glamour dust to the bee's wings.

 A close look at Lemon Tilda. 
I have adhered 3mm x 5mm oval white pearl string from The Ribbon Girl around the image.
I adhered a red 5mm pearl to Tilda's scarf and used glossy accents on the lemon in Tilda's hand.
I surrounded the image with white liquid pearls and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Joy Crafts Noor! Design oval.

I hope you like my card!?!?
