Italian Speedy Scooter Tilda And The January 2016 'Any Image' Challenge At The Ribbon Girl

Good morning, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
Today is the first challenge of the year over on The Ribbon Girl blog and our challenge theme for the next 2 weeks is; ANYTHING GOES - USE ANY IMAGE
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs. You can find out more at the end of this post and believe me you won't be disappointed.
I have made a shaped card.

I used Italian Speedy Scooter Tilda from the Little Italy 2015 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol Board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers from LLC
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Spellbinders lattice hearts. La La Land heart doily border and cherry blossom branches.
I have inked all the die cuts with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
My card is embellished with gorgeous products from The Ribbon Girl online store.

Her is a couple of close ups of the gorgeous resin heart adorned with the heart charm with pink gem and the hand tied bow using the pink checked lacey edged ribbon adorned with the sparkly 24mm diamante heart.

A close look at Tilda on her scooter.
(She was one of many stamps sent as a Birthday gift last November from my super friend.)
I have surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of 3mm white pearl string around the outside of the image.
I used glossy accents on the head lamp of the scooter and adhered a few of the sugar & spice 3mm s/a pearl flatbacks either side of Tilda.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

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

Here are our wonderful prizes that are up for grabs.

First Prize is a £10 voucher for LOTV
