Framed Tilda

Hello lovely people,

I am here with a non-DT card that I made for my great aunt-in-law who had a horrible incident where a dog attacked her dog and pushed her over so she broke her wrist :-(
It was also her birthday a few days later so I wanted to make something special to cheer her up and I went for an all out pretty feel!

Now, how often do you cut a fancy shape out of a piece of DP and don't even think about the waste piece?  Well I do it all the time, but not on this occasion!  I used the outside piece to create a frame for my image and I was planning to raise it up a little but decided it actually looked better flat.

This was my first ever Tilda so will always be one of my faves.  I have added some glamour dust to the ribbon and the little dots amongst the flowers and then just for good measure I popped some on the 3D roses as well!  I haven't done this before and think it looks really pretty :-)
