Romantic Tilda - couple of card challenges

Tilda had hardly been laid on my doormat for several minutes before she was snatched up, inked up and coloured with distress ink- been after this lovely stamp for absolutely ages. Liked a couple of the themes out there for card challenges so I'm entering the card for a couple of my fave sites:- Magnolia Down Under (theme: love, hearts, romance etc) and Friday Sketchers (a lovely sketch to follow).

I've used some gorgeous left over Melissa Frances paper that I've had for ages but its one of those papers that you just want to use for best- all distressed with scissors and then inked with Vintage Photo. I've used my fave Martha Stewart punch Doily and also a new Martha Stewart Deep Heart Border punch. Tilda was coloured in with distress inks and the flowers from Orchid Crafts were just lightly inked around the edge. Don't think you can see the Stickles used on Tildas headband, lace and also on the banner but it's there! :O) A pearl was added in each corner and here it is....

Just received my Magnolia Ink Magazine filled with fantastic Tilda creations so off to read it with a nice cuppa and a couple of Bourbon biccies - MMMMmmm.. TTFN xx
