Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Flowers and Lace!

It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week our theme is "flowers and lace". I really love my card for this challenge, I've wanted this Tilda and the Eiffel Tower ever since I started blogging but always seemed to have something else to buy but I finally got them for my birthday - yay!!!

My card is a free standing pop up card. You can find the tutorial for this here. The papers are from Magnolia, distressed with walnut stain distress ink.
I coloured the images with copics and added a touch of stickles to the lacey bits on the Eiffel Tower (sure I didn't see any lace when I went up there - must have been too busy clinging to the railings to notice LOL). The butterflies were punched with MS Monarch Butterfly punch.

The gorgeous white aida flower is by Prima from Simon Says Stamp and the rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves are a Woodware punch.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The rest of my teamies have made some stunning creations for you as always. Pop over and have a look! x

Totally Adorable Jane, I love this Eiffel Tower image, it would actually go with any Tilda I think. I bought some of the Magnolia papers when I was away, and the blue harliquin you have used is one of them.....cannot wait to use it now, it looks lovely how you have used it, such a great design of a card.
