Tilda Vintage Blue

Welcome to the first
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge
of 2012 and this weeks theme, choosen by the lovely Andie, is
Let Them Eat Cake.
This week for my card I have gone back to my favorite Magnolia stamps for my image. I have coloured her in with Tria pens, I love the fine nibs they make colouring so easy. The lace style border across the bottom of the card is a Cheery Lynn Die  and I have lay a length of beige ribbon with a bit of added glitter on the top edge.
I have then sat her on a die cut cup cake, using a Marianne Designs Die, cut out of Ella Blue paper. I have also used these papers on all the background pieces with Distress Co-ordinations as the layers. The oval that Tilda is on has been cut out with a Spellbinders Die.
The flowers and leaves have been punched out of Ella Blue papers too and I have added a little blue gem in the centre's. I have to admit I can't say where the sentiment came from I was going through my left overs from this paper pad and I found this on one of the bits and it just seemed to go on this card, now wasn't that a bit a luck.
All the edges of the patterned paper layers, Tilda's oval background and the sentiment have been lightly distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Walnut Stain, I have just added a bow under the sentiment to finish off this card. I enjoyed doing this card it has been a while since I have done a Magnolia image, I feel in the mood to do a few more.
