Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Travel Theme

Woohoo!! time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week we have a theme for you which is "travel". Now, what else could I use but this stunning Tilda hurring along with her case spilling everywhere!?!? Just love this stamp! I have used paper from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby pad and some Bo Bunny paper, both distressed with vintage photo distress ink. I'm also entering my card into the Stampavie and More challenge as their theme this week is blue and brown.

I've coloured Tilda with copics and added a touch of stickles to the lace hem of her skirt and some of the clothing in the suitcase - poor love, her sparkly evening dress is falling out the case LOL!
The amazing replica Titanic Boarding Pass came from the lovely Lynn. I saw it on one of her cards a few weeks back and she kindly emailed a copy - I love the whole Titanic history so was thrilled and it just had to be used on this card! I've inked the edges of it with vintage photo distress ink., The lace and ribbon is from my stash and I added a gold spacer and fancy pearl from The Hobby House.
I also used my new favourite embellishment - OMG look how gorgeous this butterfly is!!!! It was gold originally and I've made it look tarnished by colouring it with a brown copic. It is from The Hobby House and there are several different sizes and designs - so gorgeous!

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop over to the blog and see the rest of the team's stunning cards!! Thanks for looking! x
