Forget Me Not Tilda With Spring Pallet And A Brand New Challenge #146 At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
Can you believe that tomorrow is the 1st of May? This year is flying by!
Anyway............I'm here with my DT creation for our new month long challenge at 
Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia
The new challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES and our wonderful sponsor is 
Noor Design UK

I have made a card in lilac's and blue's. I am so loving this colour combination. You will probably be seeing a lot more of these colours on my cards.

I have used Forget Me Not Tilda masked with Spring Pallet from the latest magnolia Spring Time 2017 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock, and I have fussy cut around the image.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly # 5 and the papers that I used are Galeria papieru 'Purple Rain' and Maja Design 'Coffee In The Arbour'
Other dies used are;Cheery Lynn English pastry doily, French pastry doily and Sofia's heart doily..Creative Expressions lattice arched adornment, Marianne Design lamp, Billes flourishes and Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
I inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

I used a lovely selection of embellishments from The Ribbon Girl online store.
Just click on the links below to take you directly to the products;
The blue English rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace, double row pearl trim, 2mm white pearl bead string and bronze colour owl charm are what I bought from Sandy at LLC before the store sadly closed for good this year.

A closer look at the floral arrangements.
I have adhered a length of 2mm white pearl bead string  down the lantern and hung the bronze owl charm with a piece of Ivory hemp Twine
I dabbed the charm with white Gesso and used tiny blue rhinestones for the owl's eyes.

A close look at adorable Forget Me Not Tilda sitting on Spring Pallet.
I die cut a CartUs oval and stamped around the edges with an IndigoBlu stamp set and sprinkled a little shabby white embossing enamel around the edge.
After I fussy cut around the image I adhered it to the centre with 2mm 3D foam tape.
The 3mm s/a pearl flatbacks are Hobby House liking lilac and the butterflies that I cut out are from a sheet of Maja Design 'Coffee In The Arbour' desin paper.
I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the butterflies to add sparkle and dotted Tilda's cheecks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with the design papers and the smallest of a GoKreate large frame frilly # 5 die cut.

I hope you like my card?
It is available to buy in my Ebay shop
