Ride in the country

Hiya Happy Weekend!

Its heading into autumn here but the weather is just absolutely gorgeous!!! Nothing better than crafting and the smell of the sea coming through your window.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

lovely hAnglar or sweet magnolia- Pearls or gems
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Spring is in the air
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Fave colour combo- Coral and cream.
Craft Heaven Inspiration and challenge blog- Bingo- Full house
The ABC Challenge blog- 'E' is for everything
Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Anything goes with pearls

So my card kinda came about because of watching a tv program and it was Vera which is set in the North East of England where I am from....yup you who know it thats what I sound like! I saw the country roads and thought 'hmmm Tilda on a country bike ride'. So I used 'On the Road Tilda' and coloured her with Distress Inks. I used the Abandoned Coral and the papers from Maja 'Summer Crush' collection as I adore the colour coral and pop it with white its such a summery beautiful colour which just pops.

The dies are a mix Go Kreate, Magnolia and La La Land Crafts. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The lace...ohhh the lace... *swooon* is from Live and Love Crafts.

I made a pull out tag which has a Stempelglede sentiment on it which you can see if the photo further down. On the tags, the leaves and the swirl I added some 'Shabby Gold' Fran-tage to add some extra sparkle.

On the die cuts I used Distress Inks 'Vintage Photo' around the edges.

On the butterfly I added a butterfly button and along with the trees some Bisque Perfect Pearls. On the cat die cut I added some flat back pearls as a collar. On Tilda I added some glitter glue and also some flat back rhinestones for earrings.

To finish off I tied some blush pink twine through the tags.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
