Tilda with Fantasy Flowers, some exciting news, and a top five Fashionsta vote.

Good morning friends.
I hope you are all well and hopefully some sunshine has found its way to wherever you live.

My exciting news is that this month my blog is being featured  in Papercraft Inspirations Magazine. I am thrilled to have been asked. My one month of fame!!!

One of my cards has also been picked as a Top Five in the Fashionista Challenge. If you would like to take a  look and if you think my card is deserving, then I would love it if you would vote for me.

For today's card I have used Tilda Fantasy Flowers - she was a joy to colour. 
A full product listing will be at the bottom of this post. 

I have coloured Tilda with Distress Markers.
Clothing - Seedless Preserves
Flowers - Picked Raspberry, Crushed Olive
Hair -  Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Picked Raspberry
Shadow around image - Tumbled Glass

I couldn't resist using my Doo Hickey die again - it's just too new and doesn't deserve to be hidden away!!!
The heart above the butterfly is from Live and Love Crafts.

The flowers are from WOC and Live and Love Crafts

The pearls around the image are from some Pearl Strings from The Hobby House.
There were four layers of string in depth but I cut one strand away. The little flower at the bottom is also made by cutting some beads off a strand. The sparkly embellishments on the flower and ribbon are also from The Hobby House.

The white leaf and butterfly are made from air dry clay by Martha Stewart.  Franage has been added to the die Tilda is mounted on and the backing papers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

As you like it Challenge - Texture (I love Frantage and no card for me is complete without flowers and ribbon. There also has to be a butterfly somewhere on my card)
Natalie and Amy - Flowers
The ABC Challenge - G for Girls
Magnolia Down Under - Butterflies
Magnolia-Licious Challenge - bling it up
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
