Secretive Tilda...

Hi, friends! I have a Magnolia card today finished just in time for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge where the theme is "Distressing". Since it closes tomorrow I thought I should make a quick card using some of my newest stuff in my stash: a Magnolia die and Olivia papers from Basic Grey (new for me, of course:)). 
I chose a stamp from an older collection called Secretive Tilda. I know everybody tries to catch up with the newest stamps but I prefer to take it slowly. I've just begun blogging (in November last year) and haven't got the time to ink up but very few stamps I've been collecting over the years and it's such a pity because they are gorgeous. 

All in all, this is my card:

This is the night picture, with flash on:


Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia - Secretive Tilda 
Medium: Promarkers
Embellishments: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (I inked the blue roses ), ribbon, lace from stash, ivory pearls
Dies: lacey circle nestabilities, Magnolia DooHickey Romantic Lace, MD circle die, heart punch

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Magnolia Down-Under Challenge Blog- Distressing ( the picture is quite bad so it's not that obvious, but all the panels are distressed and inked)
CCEE Stampers - distress your papers 
Do You Stack Up? - anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Paper Play  let's get sentimental (include a sentiment)
Paper Romance - anything goes
Rainbow Lady's - shabby chic
Samuel Taylor's Challenge  use Copic or Promarkers
 Creative Cottage - fabulous florals / lots of flowers
Freshly Brewed - ribbons and bows
I Love Promarkers - stitching
Paper Pretties - glitter
Scrapbook Sisters - Lace and Pearls
The Paper Variety - stitching
Bearly Mine  - Ribbon and pearls
7 Kids College Fund - Square card

I hope you like my card although the picture is not very clear. I shall try to take a better one tomorrow.
Take care! Hugs, Iulia

Hi Iulia!
I love the brightness of your card.
The frame around Tilda looks great and you have stitched it so neatly.
The new DooHickey Romance Lace border looks lovely.
I love how you have made the heart to go with the circle frame.
Super coloring. Love it.

Hey sweet thing! Where do I start - let's start with the sentiment - "Love is in the little things" I love the hearts border - how bout those colors! The image you have chosen is wonderful - the way you have directed our eye around your card - the lace - the pretty bow -- and your coloring - have I said enough to let you know how much I love your card? One more statement - no matter what the embellishments are - you have managed to keep Tilda the center of attention - Bravo!!
With love,
Sandy
