Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Flowers

 Evening everyone!  I hope all my readers and friends in Australia are safe from all the terrible bush fires that have been happening :( it is so heartbreaking to watch on the news.  Here it's been a hectic week with the children going back to school and trying to get back into some sort of normal routine and after a well earned break over the Christmas period we are back at Magnolia Down Under Challenges with our first challenge for the year which is "flowers".  This theme was perfect for an engagement card I needed to make and so were all the images in the new stamp club kit!  The gorgeous papers are from Pink Paislee's London Market collection and distressed with gathered twigs distress ink.
I decided upon this cheeky little cutie, Bonny Tilda #313, although I though she was an Edwin before I saw the names lol!!  She is just so sweet isn't she!? I had a little play around with the background around her and added some faint little pink hearts around her.  Copics used are:

Skin:  E13, E11, E02, E00, E000, R22, R20, W3
Hair:  E33, E53, E51, E47
Bow:  Y28, YR35, YR31

 I have added some gorgeous pink seam binding from The Ribbon Girl and a button and charms from my stash.
 The hearts are chipboard from Hobby Craft and I have painted them with picket fence crackle paint before embossing with UTEE and a sprinkle of glitter before the embossing powder sets.
 The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and the cloud tag was cut with a doohickey from the Flag and cloud #30 set.
 I added some flowers from my stash along with a spiral stem from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to be stunned by the rest of the team's creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Oh, I love how delicate this card is. You've colored the image perfectly. I love the embellishments that you used. The double hearts are fantastic! Even with the embellishments, you didn't make your card appear heavy or have those embellishments compete with the stamped image! Love it!
