Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda and a new challenge at LHOSM

Hi, crafty blogger's.
I'm back again!!! This time with my challenge post for Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia
Today sees the start of a new challenge and this time the theme is...................
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Sandy at Live & Love Crafts with a £10 voucher to spend in her yummy store for one lucky winner!

I have made a Birthday card.

I used Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda from the Lovely Duo 2015 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval and then matted onto 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 Coffee In The Arbour papers from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's vintage decoration and clock. Cheery Lynn French pastry doily. La - La - Land heart doily border, cherry blossom branches and build a bee.Magnolia Doohickey bride bow, Joy Crafts ladybird border and Billes flourishes.
I inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz aged mahogany distress ink.
The lace across the centre of the card is from The Ribbon Girl and the white pearl trim is from Wild Orchid Crafts
 The shabby white ruffle trim along the bottom is from Live & Love Crafts and the 5mm white pearl string is from my craft stash.

For the flower arrangement I used Kort & Godt white chrysanthemum and hortensias, pink poppy and white flower spray all from Live & Love Crafts
The 30mm light Ivory rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pink rose is Prima.
The Birthday sentiment is grungy everyday sentiment from LOTV.
I coloured the balloons on the sentiment and added glossy accents to them.

A close look at Tilda. I love her!
I have used glamour dust on the centre of the flower and adhered a 5mm dark red pearl to Tilda's hair band. I have dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
The butterflies surrounding the image are punched out with a Woodware tiny butterfly punch and I have used white liquid pearls to dot along the butterflies centres.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.
As you can seen in this photo there are no bees! That's because I decided to add them to my card after I had taken the first lot of photos without them I couldn't make up my mind whether to add the bees or not so when I took the second lot of photos with the bees on the card I forgot to take a side view. Lol!!! I am so indecisive .

I hope you like my card?
