The Ribbon Girl June Colour Challenge

Hi friends, lovely to see you!  Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and for the sweet comments you take the time to write me.
I'd like to share my card for a new colour challange over at The Ribbon Girl Blog. This is my first DT work for The Ribbon Girl. I'm so excited!
This month's theme is 'Pinks' and this is a lovely pic to inspire you all.

Here is my card..

I have used one of the lovely new Tildas from Magnolia's Special Moments Collection 2013 colled Summer Wedding Tilda and the gorgeous flowers, lace and all embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl.

I have coloured with Distress Inks and added Shabby white Frantage around the image. These gorgeous papers are from Maja Design called Vintage Summer. All the paper edges are sewn using my sewing machine and distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.

 I have painted Silver Colour Butterflies with Gesso and also added powder sand.

The following items are available at The Ribbon Gril online store:
Rolled Paper Roses Pink Kort & Godt, Aster Ivory, Pink Crystal Hearts, 12mm Ivory Pearl Flower Shape Flatbacks, Silver Colour Butterflies, Lily Flowers Pale Pink, 'Rebecca' Ivory Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace, Pink Tulip Seam Binding, Pearls Sugar and Spice, Pink Tulle Lace, Hip Rose Buds, Irridescent Sparkle Bead String, Cheesecloth.

      I usually use 256gsm Watercolour paper called 'Mat thunders' from a Japanese company 'Muse' or 300gsm hot press Watercolour paper from 'Waterford'. I stamp with Ranger Archival ink Jet black and colour with Distress Markers & Distress ink pads. I use Pentel Neosable #0 brush. my usual art tool choices tend to be manufactured in Japan.
