Tilda with comfort blanket

Good Morning Everyone, I have popped along to show my new card,  that I have coloured entirely with distress inks. I have been practicing a lot and watching tutorials on u tube and I think that this one has turned out quite nice.

I didn't want to put too many embellies on this card, as quite often I finish my card and realise that I have covered nearly all the beautiful paper (I know we've all been there!) so had to exercise a little self restraint hee hee!

There are 5 layers of papers and card, the top layer is beautiful  Maja Design Sofiero Paper
called The Magnificent Flower Street.
I have added a little frantage glitter to the image and the frame behind tilda and sentiment are cut from paper from the same range.
The larger amber berry to the right of the picture is from live and love crafts, but I couldn't find it when I checked their site, so I don't know what it is called. The frosted pink berries, shabby heart and cluney lace across the middle of the card, are also from LLC too.
The roses, cherry blossom and resin dove are from the ribbon girl.
With the tag removed from behind the image. It is distressed threaded with mocha and pink lace and coffee coloured ribbon and has a tiny teddy bear charm hanging from a silver ring.
I have also frantaged an ornate metal corner with vintage beige.
Perfect Sentiment! From LOTV.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a good week.
Take care
