Time for Tea - Sweetheart @ Dies to Die for

Happy Tuesday everyone, I'm here with my inspirational post for Dies to Die for,  and I do hope you like it cos I have to admit I'm just a bit chuffed with this one.

I've combined Time for Tea's newly released 'Sweetheart' with the new Pion Design collection 'One Day in May (links to products are as always at the end of this post).

Since the papers are very soft and vintage looking, I thought I'd try colouring the image with Distress Inks, not thinking it would work too well, her being very modern looking, ...well was I surprised, cos she looks fab!
Links to products used can be found at the end of this post.

The little tickets are cut from the element sheet.

I've just realised on posting this that I forgot to colour in her eyebrow! I'll have to go back and touch that up lol.

On the inside  I decorated with the other side of one of the papers and a postcard from the element sheet for writing a message on.

I thought these large butterflies cut with a Joy Crafts die were just the thing to finish it off, a few pearls popped on just gave it that finishing touch.

I do hope you like my share today, I had such fun making it. 

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, I'll be back on Thursday with my Marvelous Magnolia DT post.
