Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar DT - Anything Goes with Glitter

Well, finally I got myself out of my gloom to create a card - well, I was kind of forced out of it by a commission for one of my friend's birthday! Bet you can't guess how old she's going to be LOL! This is a card for her daughter's to give hence a double helping of the gorgeous Tilda!! The papers are from Magnolia and I created the card shape myself.

I have coloured the Tilda's to look like my friend's girls :) - love doing that! I have paper pieced Tilda's dress and added stickles to her shoes and waist band. The gorgeous sentiment is from Whimsy stamps which I've embossed in silver. The gems and gem brad in the Prima flower are from The Hobby House.

I have also paper pieced this Tilda's top. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and have also been given the stickles treatment.

I added a selection of flowers from my stash and two die cuts using the Magnolia heart swirl.

I embossed "Mummy" in silver and then went around the letters with a marker as they weren't showing too well. I cut the pennants myself. The gorgeous pink and white bakers twine is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the brad is from The Hobby House. I splodged some picket fence crackle paint here and there too!

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x

OMW! This is just absolutely stunning - I love everything about it, and I'm sure your friend and her daughters will be thrilled with it!
I like to colour images to look a little like the person I'm making the cards for - it makes them extra special I think.
Love, Andrea xx
