Another multi challenge card...

Hi folks!
I made this card with lots of challenges in mind. Just Magnolia and The Cuttlebug spot both have the theme of 'Summer' running this week. Charisma Cardz has a bling week wanting to see diamonds (mine are the flower centres)... It's 'tags' over on Cute Card Thursday (I have used tiny tags for the letters) and lili of the Valley wants us to paper piece (I have pieced Tilda's Dress). The Saturday Challenge has set a colour challenge of Pink and green (hope they don't mind a little bit of blue that snuck in there) Cute Daisy May wants animals (Does a Tilda Butterfly count ;o) and lastly I have followed the Friday Sketchers sketch.
For this card I have used the scrummy Imagineisce papers. I used my Nestabilities to cut the frame (pink glitter board) and white panel. I embossed the white panel with my Cuttlebug and added Cosmic Shimmer Aqua Twinkles to the raised dots. I saw this technique on one of the samples that my friend Kim Piggot had made for her demo day. I stamped tilda onto acetate and glittered her wings with translucent glitters. I replaced her antennae with wire ones that I finished with a couple of drops of liquid pearls. Her little dress I paper pieced and added a little black chalk to, the rest is coloured with Copics. The flowers are Prima and the leave made using my trusty Woodware punch. The sentiment (cut using Funky Foam) and tiny Tags are dies from my Go Kreate London Alphabet. I finished of the card with some pink ribbon, ric rak and flower brads from my stash.
Hope you have had a great start to your week.
Ciao for now!
