Tilda with ugg boots

This is a birthday card that I made for a friends co-worker  She told me this she likes colours  but not red! Red is not one of my favourite colours either. I used my new TH on the edge die - butterflies for the first time. This one has been on my wish list for a while now, but the prices vary from one shop to another for more than 50 % of the value.








 For this card I used:
  • colours: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • papers: BoBunny - Country Garden, 
  • stamps:  Tilda with ugg boots New York postal stamp
  • dies: TH on the edge butterflies
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts, I am roses and old stash
  • ribbon and lace from my old stash
  • paper doily - Dovecraft
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • liquid pearls - opaq.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Marvelous Magnolia: #15 Floral Bonanza
  2. Barely mine Challenges: Lace, ribbon, twine

I really like how it turned out.

  • papers: First edition Rose garden
  • stamps: Tilda with dot bow, New York (text)
  • dies: Magnolia DooHickey Romantic Lace
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts and I am roses
  • lace and cheesecloth from The Ribbon girl 
  • Crackle accent
  • paper lace from Papermania and pink feather from the local craft store.
