Insta Tilda And A new Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friends.
I hope you are well!?
Today sees the start of our new fortnightly challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia
This time our challenge theme is..................Favourite Colour Combo.
Our wonderful sponsor is 2 lovely ladies Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!
My favourite colour combo is blue and brown.

I used Insta Tilda from the WWW15 Collection.
The image is stamped onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval die.
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 Vintage Baby papers from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Joy Crafts edge border #5, banner and Billes flourishes. La La Land hot air balloon, Marianne Design stitched circle and Magnolia Doohickey Sakura background.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The Granddaughter letters I have cut out using a Pion design sheet and the Happy Birthday sentiment is Joy Crafts English banner text.
Her is a list of all the gorgeous embellishments that I have used on my card from 
45mm Eleanor White Embroidered Tulle Lace, 30mm Shabby White Ruffled Ribbon, 5mm Crystal Bead String, Pearl & Rhinestone Butterflies, Guipure Lace Heart White, 3mm White s/a Pearl Flatbacks, 30mm Dusky Blue Wild Roses, Chrysanth White Kort & Godt, 3mm x 5mm Oval Pearl String and Pack Of 5 White Hat Pins.

A close look at the  flower arrangement.
The 30mm light Ivory wild roses and 15mm mocha open roses are from WOC.

A close look at the gorgeous Guipure lace heart.

A close look at adorable Insta Tilda.
I surrounded the image with 3mm white s/a pearls and  Ranger white liquid pearls. 
I adhered 3mm x 5mm oval white pearl string around the image.
I used glossy accents on the heart of the camera, but you can't see it very well!
Tilda's cheeks have been dotted with a white gelly roll pen.

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

We would love you to come and join in with our current challenge.
