Tilda As A Clown And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
Happy Easter!
I hope you are well? Welcome and thank you to my new followers. I'm so glad you like my creations.
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and this time around our challenge theme is.......................... SHABBY CHIC
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is lovely Sandy from Live & Love Crafts with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!
I have made another Birthday card.

I used Tilda As A Clown from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013.
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 Vintage Spring basics 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 branch. Tim Holtz on the edge Butterflight, Magnolia Doohickey bride bow and Joy Crafts Billes flourishes.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink.
The pretty lace and white pearl trim are from Wild Orchid Crafts 
 Hidden behind all the embellies is rose organza trim. It is from The Ribbon Girl

I used a selection of roses from Wild Orchid Crafts The Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums and vintage style Ivory trinket pin is from The Ribbon Girl
The everyday grungy sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley I coloured ihe balloons and added glossy accents to them.
The birdcage is from The Works. 10 birdcages for £1. Bargain! I painted it with white Gesso.
The sea green s/a 3mm pearls along the centres of the butterflies are from The Ribbon Girl

A close look at Tilda! How cute is this clown?
I have surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel and used ArtDeco glamour dust on Tilda's collar and pom pom.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

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

I hope you like my card?
