Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's
I hope you are well.
Easter blessing's to each and every one of you!

Today see's a new challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia so for one whole month our challenge theme is......................PEARLS OR GEMS
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Sandy at Live & Love Crafts with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I have made a 30th Birthday card and added lots of pearls.

I used Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda from the Lovely Duo 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 Joycrafts Noor! oval.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5 and Maja Design Walking In The Forest papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, French pastry doily and pine branches. Marianne Design clock and Ivy circle. Spellbinders heart lattice and Joy Crafts Billes flourishes.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
Here is a list of all the gorgeous embellishments that I have used on my card from The Ribbon Girl online store.

A couple of close up pics of the flowers, Silver butterfly and bronze frame.
I have painted the silver butterfly with white Gesso. Once the paint wass dry I rubbed Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink over it and adhered 3 peaches & cream s/a pearl flatbacks along the centre.
The bronze frame is sadly no longer available to buy because I love them a lot.
I painted the frame with white Gesso and rubbed it over when dry with tea dye distress ink adhering 3mm peaches & cream s/a pearl fllatbacks into the recesses.

A close look at Tilda. I love her!
I have adhered a length of 4mm white pearl bead string around the image.
The butterflys are punched out using a Woodware tiny butterfly punch.
The green pearl on Tilda's headband is from my craft stash and the pearls surrounding the image are 3mm peaches & cream s/a pearl flatbacks.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the 3rd smallest of a GoKreate large frame frilly #5

I hope you like my card adorned with pearls.
