a bit of red and white

well I thought I would do something bright and cheerful as we have such a grey day here in the Pilbara. So my colour scheme is red and white. I love the fresh crisp feel of the white against the bright red. such a lovely combo.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolia- Lots of layers
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog- Button up
Tilda's Town Challenge Blog- Bling

So for this card I used one of my new stamps, miss Tilda sewing. Isnt she cute! I used Kaisercraft and Bazzill bling card stock for this card. I used Maja DP for the striped paper. I layered each piece of coloured card with white as I love the way it edges it. 

Tilda is coloured using Distress inks- here is my combo;

Skin- Tattered Rose/Tea dye/Worn lipstick/ Spun sugar
Hair- Antique Linen/Vintage Photo
Dress- Fired brick/festive berries
Blanket- Shabby shutters/festive berries/ old paper
Needle- Pumice stone
Aura- Broken China

I used WOC flowers around the edge. The buttons are dotted in with the flowers and the bow is also a button. I used some lace from LLC and same for the ribbon.

I added sparklets, and rhinestones to the edge of the card to make it sparkle along with a kiasercraft rhinestone flourish and some Stickles in 'Fairy Dust'. The red ghost leaf is from Prima.

The closet thing I could find to a need was the Tim Holtz pen nibs! So that is nestled in with the flowers. 

My sentiment is a spin on the 'so in love' but since Tilda is sewing I used that version of the word 'Sew in love'. I used a Magnolia Doohickey die for the shape and lined with red Bazzill card once again.

I hope you like my card!
