Tilda With Heart Phone And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
I can't believe we are nearly in July. Where is the year going?
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is;
Instead of a sponsor for this fortnight, the prize will be a Guest DT spot for Simply Magnolia.

I have made another 21st Birthday card.
If you missed the first 21st Birthday card that I made last week you can find it HERE 

I used Tilda With Heart Phone from the WWW15 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval. I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the image onto a Spellbinders opulent oval.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate XXL frilly frame #5 and Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour/ Vintage Spring Basics papers from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn French pastry doily,Marianne Design clock, Magnolia Doohickey bride bow and bloomy tag. Spellbinders shapeabilities butterfly, La La Land cherry blossom branches, Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Memory Box classic numbers.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is called "Marie Therese" and is from Live & Love Crafts

The flower arrangement consists of a 30mm dusky blue wild rose, Ivory Kort & Godt rolled roses and 5mm pink s/a pearls from The Ribbon Girl 25mm Vintage pink open roses, 15mm baby pink open roses and 10mm white open roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have adhered 3mm x 5mm oval white pearl string from The Ribbon Girl along the centre of the butterfly.

I have painted a Vintage bronze frame with white Gesso and rubbed it over with Tim Holtz chipped sapphire distress ink .
I adhered a 5mm pink s/a pearl, 3mm white s/a pearls and tiny pink rhinestones into various recesses around the frame. 
The bronze colour Vintage style small key is from The Ribbon Girl and the butterfly is one that I made using a Martha Stewart mould and white Fimo.

A close look at chic Tilda With Heart Phone.
I surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a string of 3mm white pearls from The Ribbon Girl around the image.
I added glamour dust to the heart phone and 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?
