Tilda with Elsie the Lamb

Hello Everyone,

We are enjoying a bank holiday here in England and my new set of Magnolia stamps arrived just in time, to give me an extra day to craft.

This card was a bit of a challenge as it is definately not my usual style of card that I make, but I wanted to try something different. So no large roses, daisies, hat pins, pink, so wrapped up doohickey or lace. This is about as close to a CAS card that I will ever make!

So I have masked Tilda with Elsie the lamb and the new Summer Hill background, together.

I have coloured the whole image with Copics.

I adore these double layer frames, I have also created a dotty blue sky.

You can see in this photo, that I have used three layers of Pion papers, I didn't want to cover up the beautiful floral design, which is perfect for this card. I also used colour core card to break up some of the layers and added the same around the sentiment. 
The large die cut doilie is spellbinders.

I haven't used rolled up roses for a long time, but they suit the colour scheme and I made the smallest one myself. 
The frantaged dove at the top of the image also matches nicely, I think I used Antique Beige?  It has antiqued it lovely.
Anyway I hope that you like my attempt at something different. 

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
