Tilda with flowers

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this time is...


We are also delighted that The Ribbon Girl are going to be sponsoring some of our challenges this year
So this week we have a £10 voucher to give away to one lucky person :-)

I came over all distressed for today's card but without inking any of the edges.
This is the first time I have matted my image panel onto white and I really like the subtle effect.

Pink and girly card featuring Tilda with flowers, and pearl, flower and ribbon details

I don't have too many Magnolia stamps (yet!) so you have probably seen me use this one before but I did find a nice new pink combo as I wanted to keep the tones quite pale.

I love adding little pearl dots to the flower bunch on this image :-)

I was very excited to finally get my hands on the Magnolia heart swirl die that I have wanted for absolutely ages; I have cut it into small sections to tuck under the flowers here.

I also added a few more scattered pearls around the flowers clusters.

Here's a shot to show my little ribbon/flower/swirl cluster plus some cute little rosebuds that I haven't used before... but will be using a lot more I think!
