Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. A card today for four challenges :D, Just Magnolia is hearts, CCT is blooming gorgeous, MTTCC is elegant rose and SCSC is hearts, it’s not often I manage a multiple challenges!
I’ve used the absolutely gorgeous ‘Right through my heart’ Tilda from Raising the ceiling collection which I think is going to be available to buy here in the UK this week. Tilda is coloured with distress inks, glittered and gilded around the image edges and on her bow with gold embossing powder although I don't think a girl this sweet should need her love bow and arrow! The background paper is also by Magnolia and I embossed the edges of this too, it worked really well as the paper is a nice thick quality, almost like card. I die cut a nestability frame, sponged with gold ink and then cut off the top and bottom and added to the top and bottom of the image just underneath, I think she looks a bit Grecian and needed framing :). The bullseye circle and the sentiment are also Magnolia stamps and also embossed in gold. I added some criss crossed dotted ribbon too to finish off. TFL and thanks as always for your lovely comments which I hope to return as soon as I catch up with things.
