This Elf Tilda stamp just has to be one of my all time favourites. She just looks so gorgeous whatever I do with her. I was inspired by the pink roses and the colours in both the photos and the great sketch to make this card. I really wanted to make a pretty, pretty card and I think I have achieved that with all the ribbon, lace and sparkle. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and glitter and I attached some lace around the edge before putting it onto the embossed card. The panel on the left has been punched and embossed along the edges before attaching some lace with ribbon threaded through it. The sentiment is a digi download which I layered with Nesties and added a butterfly charm to. I also placed a ribbon bow above it. The flowers are punched with paper roses added to the centres, and finally, a trio of butterflies punched from an old glittered gift tag finnishes the card off. Thanks for looking.
