Pink Ribbon Tilda in Green for Marvelous Magnolia

Happy Thursday everyone!  Well it's nearly the end of my working week, just tomorrow to go.  I always look forward to the weekend cos it means I get more crafting time.  I've been doing quite well lately and seem to be getting a little quicker making my cards, I suppose these things come with experience, though I don't think I'll ever be a fast crafter.

But enough waffle and on to the reason I'm here today.  It's time for a new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia and this time the theme is to 'Add Some Green'.  I'll admit right away that I normally don't use much green, I'm not a big fan, though lately with the new Pion range A Day In May,  it's growing on me. Well I could have just added a bit of green ribbon or embellishments, but I thought I'd go all out and make a mostly green card.

I used Pion design floral frames in both green and violet, links to products can be found at the end of my post.

Tilda is coloured in Distress Inks, this was my very first stab at DI colouring, I saved the image to use, I just added some lilac to the bow and some sparkle. Love this MFT postage stamp die I used to frame her.

I added some WOC flowers and a lovely butterfly corner die cut which I embellished with liquid pearls.

I decorated the inside to complement the front and used some gorgeous green satin ribbon and some purple seam binding.
