My Lovely Friends,

Tilda's having a party!

Hi guys, gosh is it Thursday already! how the time flies lol,
of course that means it's a new challenge over at 
Paper Play and this week we want 
lovely Lace,

Now as you know I'm into my distress inks at the moment and I usually use the pads, well me being me had to try the re-inkers too, usually when I see gorgeous creations done with the re-inkers I think the colours look deeper more vibrant, so guess which is done in re-inkers! I will let you know at the end of the post lol,
any way for the other stuff I have made my stepper card making my own steps on my usual square base card as you know I do, only this time I've done two steps,

I've used a  Doo Hickey fence die and flowers on the front row along with a Marianne die to create the centre flowers, the Doo Hickey heart swirl die is by Magnolia too, butterfly punch wood ware, and a lace  butterfly which I cut out of a lace strip I bought from a market,
Tilda with balloon is from the You are so Special 2011 collection and I have used craft wire for the balloon string,

the inner step has more of the white rose lace, and yet more of my hand made flowers too, this time I've used a Doo Hickey grass die and I've sat Tilda with Ponytail from the Sweet Rainbow collection on one of the flowers,
For the main card I masked Tilda with big ribbon onto the Romantic  window stamp, both are from the You are so special collection and cut out the shape with my new postage stamp nestie die cut,
there is another type of lace strip down the side again from the market,

the papers are also by Magnolia and are machine sewn, doily stash and a Doo Hickey cloud die has been used with a Stampavie sentiment stamped on,
I've used another gorgeous lace butterfly on the top right of the main card too,

Just Magnolia ~ A window, door on your project
Paper playtime ~ Tag with a sentiment
 The ABC Challenge ~ H is for Happy Birthday
Everybody art ~ swirls

did you guess, the front one has been done with ...........
the pads and the others re-inkers, that's just typical for me! lol
trust me to get paler colouring with the re-inkers!

got Tegan again today so will catch up later,
have a lovely day
