Guest DT card for Magnolia Down Under

Oh how excited am I!
The challenge today is for 
so like hello, love, friend etc,
and it doesn't have to be the main focus of your card,
for mine I've used the Doo Hickey flag die by Magnolia and added HI using a small hero arts alphabet set I have, a little twine holds it together,

I'm still practising with my re-inkers, need more practise, but I'm loving colouring with them at the moment lol,
my card started off as a basic square then I've added my own steps again,
I masked cutie pie Tilda onto the window stamp and added hints of glitter and liquid pearl too,

for my steps the front one has a Magnolia Doo Hickey lovely fence die on it which I have edged with vintage photo distress ink then I've embellished this with white rose ribbon which I've added some small pearls too,  some butterflies and  the swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey heart swirl die, also on this step is Tilda with lovely lace shoes,

the inner step has two layers of the  Doo Hickey grass border die, on to this I've added a bit of lace, and some more flowers and the heart swirl again too, I've highlighted the heart swirl with a little white acrylic paint, Tilda with wrapped heart is on this layer,

She's my latest to be be coloured with my DI'S and I'm more pleased with her lol,

to finish off the card, all edges are machine sewn, talking of which my machine is making strange noises so I think it may be about to give up the ghost! lol
a lovely strip of lace, lace butterfly and  a  Doo Hickey Bloomy Tag die with pink tulle finish it off,
