Summer Flower Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I'm here with my third scheduled post for June.
Today see's a new challenge over on the Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia challenge blog, and this time our challenge theme is..................ADD SOME BLUE
We have 2 wonderful sponsors for this challenge.
They are Magnolialicious & The Ribbon Girl

I used Summer Flower Tilda from the Summer Memories 2012 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 & Polychromos Pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers.
Other dies used are; La La Land heart doily border, Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, Marianne Design Ivy circle and Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tags.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

I used lots of gorgeous products on my card from The Ribbon Girl online store.

A close look at the flower arrangement and embellished resin frame.
I painted the frame with white Gesso and adhered a length of 4mm white pearl string inside the recess.
The bronze owl charm is from LLC. 
I adhered tiny yellow rhinestones for the owls eyes and lightly rubbed over the charm with white Gesso
The butterflies are cut out from a sheet of Pion Studio of Memories design paper.
I painted the edges with white Gesso and adhered 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks along their centres.

A close look at adorable Summer Flower Tilda.
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and 3mm sea charm s/a pearl flatbacks 
I have adhered a length of 3mm white pearl string around the outside of the image.
I used glamour dust on Tilda's wings and dotted her cheeks with a white Gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.
