Mail Tilda And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well!
Today we start our new fortnightly challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is Anything Goes.
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 a Birthday card.

I used Mail Tilda from the WWW 2015 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs circle and matted onto a Spellbinders stately circle.
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 Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and clock. La - La - Land heart doily border and cherry blossom branches.Doohickey bride bow. Spellbinders shapeabilities butterflies and Joy Crafts Billes flourishes.
I inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz aged mahogany distress ink
Along the bottom of the card I have used 45mm Jessica lace from The Ribbon Girl and white pearl trim from Wild Orchid Crafts

I used a selection of 30, 25 and 15mm roses from Wild Orchid Crafts The Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums are from Live & Love Crafts and the white beaded berries are Magnolia.
The everyday grungy sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley
I used white Gesso on the bride bow.

A close look at the butterflies.
The wooden heart button, 5mm pink s/a pearl and 3mm white string pearls are from The Ribbon Girl
I painted the button with white Gesso.

A close up of Mail Tilda.
I dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
The tiny butterfly is Woodware punch.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.
