Sweet Pea Tilda

Hi guys, just popping on with a card I've made for my mums 83 rd Birthday, she loves pretty colours and I thought sweet Pea Tilda is so cute she is defo one of my favourites at the moment lol,

I've coloured her with my distress re-inkers and used a spellbinders ovals die for the shape, underneath I have sewn tulle which I cut into about a one and a half inch strip this I then pleated by hand and sewed in place as I went along, this so reminded me of when I sewed for a living doing pleated edges for cushions etc lol,

To finish off the tulle, I sewed the pleated strip underneath my ovals die cut to keep it in place, this I then layered onto a spellbinders floral ovals die cut, which I cut out of pink cardstock,

My mum doesn't like dark colours so I have kept her fairly light and kept the background that way too,

The other dies I used are a Tim Holtz on the edge border die called butterflight which I love to use,
I cut out two layers one in cardstock and one in matching  Pion paper then laid them onto each other, I was trying the technique I've seen in blogland where you then pull the top layer off to reveal the bottom layer, only just as I stuck it down my neighbour called for a coffee and when I got back to it it had stuck good and proper so it left the white backing paper off the top one showing, it wasn't quite the effect I was after but it still looked ok and it kept the light look too lol,

The gorgeous pearl string and the beautiful roses came from the ribbon girl, I so need more of these as they are gorgeous and when I've finished my Radio therapy treatment which I have just started I will be going on a shopping spree to treat myself he he,
