Tilda with Big Tulips

Good evening blogger friends.

I hope you are all well and having an enjoyable week. 
We are having a very expensive month as we have had a massive bill for the boiler, four new tires for the car and a locking system for the front door. 
Hey ho - its only money!!! Scary though as I need to save up some money for the NEC!!!

For my card today I am again using my favourite Magnolia image "Tilda with Big Tulips".
I have made a criss cross image after being inspired by Teresa's fabulous creations. Teresa has a fabulous tutorial on this card so please take a look. 

I have coloured the image with my distress markers. The pearl embellishments are all from The Hobby House. 

The pearls and the bling in the middle of the flower are all from The Hobby House. The pearl string has been cut to make a thinner string which is on the two diagonal strips. The complete string is along the top of the lace.
The flowers are from WOC and Live and Love Crafts. 
A product listing will be at the end of this post. 

My favourite Die at the moment - A Doo Hickey.

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Another stunning card Sharon. Your colouring really is perfection, I still don't know why you want to come for lessons! Love all your gorgeous details, they're right up my street and that doo hickey is worth its weight in gold lol. I've just bought some new frames for the air dry clay, not tried them yet but love it all so much.
Which day are you going to the NEC? I think I'm going on the Saturday with Debs, Claire and Pami

Well they do say they come in three's Sharon so hopefully the maintenance side of things are done with for a time. Hope so or else the NEC may be a non event and that would never do.

Onto your card which is another Sharon special, although I don't do cute and never owned a Magnolia stamp I do admire the work of those that do and your's are always a sheer delight.

As always you have paid wonderful attention to all the little details right down to the hidden message.

Thank you so much for joining in my blog celebration with your lovely card and good luck when it comes to the prize draws.
