Magnolia Down Under Challenge #4 - Bling it On!!

Happy Monday everyone!
Wow, this weekend was busy and I barely got a chance to go into my craft room!  The boys went back to school today so I was able to have some 'me' time and I got the chance to do the Magnolia Down Under challenge - Bling It On!
The Tilda image is one of my new purchases and I really love it!  I stamped her on watercolour paper and coloured her in using my Distress Inks.  I have to remind myself of my other colouring mediums and not get totally wrapped up in my copics!!  I still LOVE the look that watercolouring gives - so much more muted and soft.
Onto the card, I kept the layout simple and used papers from my BG Porcelain pad.  I used other papers from my stash.  The sewing adds some simple detail to the back panel.  The swirl is from SU! and I embellished it with heart gems as well as the hearts in Tilda's hands.  For additional bling I added stickles to Tilda's wings and some to the Prima flower, and also added heart gems in each of the corners.  For the final touch I added a length of organza ribbon and tied the love charm at the top. 
I took a photo from a slightly different angle to make sure you could see all the bling & sparkle!
Thanks for stopping by today and for leaving a much appreciated comment!  I hope you're all having a wonderful day!

Hi, I love it, I love it, I love it.

Would you mind if I copied and posted this picture of your creation on my blog "petits bonheurs"?

The idea of my blog is to post everything that brings me joy for whatever reason, however it's in French. Of course you're one my all-time favorite links.

Please says yes!

Thank you for sharing your talent. I don't have it, the only thing I can do is ADMIRE it!
