Celebration Tilda And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good evening, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
I'm a little late with my challenge post. Sorry!
Today see's a new challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is;
CAS Or Fully Loaded.
Instead of  a sponsor for this fortnight, the prize will be a Guest DT spot for Simply Magnolia.

I have made an Engagement card.
I used Celebration Tilda from the 4th Graduation 2015 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders opulent 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 from Live & Love Crafts
The pretty lace across the bottom of the card is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pink organza rose trim is from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and clock. La - La - Land heart doily border. Magnolia Doohickey Sakura background, Joy Crafts lattice heart and Billes flourishes.

Here are a trio of close ups of the gorgeous embellishments.
I have tired the bow with 32mm Valerie fine lace and adhered a oval pink diamante embellishment both from The Ribbon Girl
I have adhered a shabby bark heart from Live & Love Crafts onto the lattice heart and embellished a heart button with twine and a 5mm pink pearl all from The Ribbon Girl
I have computer generated the sentiment using MS Word and sprinkled a little Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around it.The oval Chiswick frame is Melissa Francis. I painted the frame with white Gesso.

For the flower arrangement I Used a 25mm wild rose, 20mm pink roses, white flower spray, Kort & Godt chrysanthemums, pink and white pomegranate apples and frosted marshmallow beaded berries all from Live & Love Crafts
The pretty pink princess pin is from The Ribbon Girl 

A close up of Celebration Tilda.
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and used ArtDeco glamour dust to the roses and decoration in Tilda's hair.
I used glossy accents on the champagne glass and  gold liquid pearls for the bubbles.

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

I hope you like my card!?!?
