Cupid Angel Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
Today see's a new challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia So for one whole month our challenge theme is ADD SOME FLOWER'S
Our wonderful sponsor is The Ribbon Girl 

I have made an Engagement card.
Sorry that the pictures are not as crisp as I would have liked them to be. I took several and each one wasn't to my satisfaction. I don't know if it is the colours or just the way I took the photo's?

I used Cupid Angel Tilda from the new Magnolia Collection A Touch Of Love 2016.
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 Prismacolour and Polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.

For the shape of the card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5 and Maja Design Enjoying Outdoors papers from LLC
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, La La Land heart doily border, Spellbinders heart lattice, Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tags and bride bow.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
The pretty lace and daisy trim are a gift from my Mum's friend.

Here are a couple of close up pics of the gorgeous embellishments used on my card.
The flowers are from WOC and the bark heart, clay heart, wooden heart button, heart pendant and praying angel charms are all from LLC
I used letters from a sheet of Pion Memories paper to cut the names of the couple.
The white Vintage little angel above the bark heart is from Magnolia nu shop.
I used natural twine from my craft stash to tie a bow through the wooden heart button and the 6mm Ivory silk self adhesive hearts on the banner, heart pendant and bark heart are from The Ribbon Girl

A close look at adorable Cupid Angel Tilda.
I have adhered a string of 2mm white pearls around the outside of the image from LLC
I used Glamour Dust on Tilda's wings and glossy accents on the red hearts.
The 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks around the image are from The Ribbon Girl
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

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

The recipients loved their card.
