'Have Dinner With Me Tilda' January 2017 Anything Goes - Any Image Challenge At The Ribbon Girl

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
Happy New Year!
Today see's a new challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog.
Our theme for the next two weeks is................................
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs. You can find out more at the end of my post and believe me you will not be disappointed!

I received a fab gift from a very special friend at the end of November for my Birthday.
It was the Magnolia Advent calendar.
Opening a new surprise every day throughout December was very exciting so on my card I have used the stamp from day one.
I have made this card for my neighbour who is 70 in February.

I used Have Dinner With Me Tilda from the new Recipe Card 2017 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Galeria Papieru 'Purple Rain' design papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Marianne Designs clock. Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tags and La La Land cherry blossom branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a list of the gorgeous products that I have used on my card from The Ribbon Girl online store.
Just clink onto th elinks below to take you directly to the products;

A close look at the flower arrangements.
I have made the flowers with Foamiran. 
The dies I used to create the flowers are Magnolia Doohickey peony die and Marianne Design Creatables English roses die.
The pretty frame was sent to me from my super friend.
I painted it with white Gesso and adhered a piece of the design paper to the back of the frame.
I die cut the N0 70 with design paper and Memory Box classic numbers die and adhered small heart pearls and 3mm s/a white pearls inside the frame .

A close look at Tilda. Isn't she gorgeous?
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of 3mm white pearl bead string around the outside of the image.
Inside around the image I have adhered a few 3mm white s/a pearls and I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

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

I hope you like my card?
