Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Bling it Up

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious and our theme is "Bling it up".  I have made a Mother's Day card using the gorgeous Tilda Hiding Rose Bouquet LF02.  Isn't she adorable?  So versatile too - I love it when you can use a stamp for a variety of occasions.  LOL, it is funny she is on yesterday's card too but I actually made these two cards weeks apart without realising they would be back to back on my blog!  Never mind, she's gorgeous enough to be seen twice in a row I think.  All of the papers on the card are from Magnolia.
I have coloured her with copics using the "no lines" technique.  I do love the look of this technique but boy oh boy does it take a long time to do!  I think this one is my best "no lines" attempt so far and it took hours!
I have added flowers from my stash and lace and cherry blossoms from The Ribbon Girl.
The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and so was the left hand border of the card.  You can see I have added some faux stitching around the edge of the image mat too.
I have used the Cute Corner Doohickey DH72 to decorate the top of the image mat.
The notebook style edge was punched with an EK Success punch and here's my bling - not much but it's there - two little crystal hearts from my stash.
The right hand edge of the card was cut with Tim Holtz Doily On The Edge die and I've used the Ticket Doohickey too.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious!  
As always there is a special surprise gift from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner.  Thanks for looking! x

WOW, Jane. Your coloring is "to die for." I love Tilda's red hair. That is something I've not mastered. She is a gorgeous little girl and the sweet little hearts on her frame "bling it" all together. LOL
