Bows, buttons & bling........

Well good evening all my lovely friends how are you all? Have you watched the wedding? I have not seen any of it I've seen the dress & Will's suit on aol but thats it its my youngest son Jake's 15 th birthday today so we've spend the day with him......I still remember the day I had him & how I knew he was my last lol....
Quickie card from me.....well quickie I say but you have to realise that my quick cards still take 2 hours to make......unless its a male card lol. I suppose it would help if I chose my papers first......I like to be different lol.
Anyway I have dusted off an older stamp that I have have had since last year but had still never used.......yes my wrists are slapped lol.....

This is 'Sitting' Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection & I got her when they released this set.....cant remember where I had her from tho.

Its been sooooo long since I entered Just Magnolia when I saw the challenge today.....well the challenge is bows, buttons & can a girl resist any of these especially the bows & bling.

The inside to compliment the front

She is of course coloured with Copics which I didnt write down......weally sorry peeps.

The flower is a prima paper flower at the bottom then I punched a flower out of the same paper then added a button with bakers twine threaded through. The beautiful ribbon & gems are from my stash & the ribbon is actually a really deep pink not red.
The gorgeous paper is Prima 'Madeline' & its the A4 sized pad....the square she is sitting on is also from the same pad........this is now my fave pad...ever!!!
I punched some white card with an MS blorder punch & added diamond stickes along the bottom. The matting Tilda is on is using my nestie.

Well thats it from me as I have a canny bit of DT work to do so will pop round see you all later.
I'm off to link this up.
Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by I love you all & appreciate every single visit & every comment you leave you really do brighten a girls day....mmwah.
Tatty bye my lovelies xoxoxoxox

Hi sweetie! How are you? Good, I hope.
Your card is very sweet - as always. I love the flower paper you used, it's so pretty!
I didn't pay any attention to the wedding - though even here everybody was talking just about that (and we could watch the wedding on our national TV).
Have a nice time!
