90 years young...

Morning all

Hope you are all well. Its officially winter here, the 1st of June. Bit grey and damp but otherwise not too bad. Not a bad say to be holed up in craft room.

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

Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Flowers
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia - Summer
Sweet Stampers Challenge blog- Birthday
Simply Magnolia- Flowers
Petal Lu Creations- Now on Facebook

This card was a big deal to me. This is for a 90th birthday for a very special neighbour back home in England. She is such a wonderful lady. She is still young at heart, loves a gin and has been a good family friend since I was a baby. I know she loves bling and colour so I wanted bright and cheerful for her.

I used 'Ribbon Dance Tilda' from the collection a few year back 'The little Moscow circus'. I coloured this cutie with Distress inks. The papers are from Maja Design 'Summer' and I love the shades, they are my fave colour combo coral and turquoise.

I wanted something that would show the movement in the Ribbon Dance that Tilda is doing so I used a spinner tutorial which can be found in the post 'Age old question'. I wanted her to just move from side to side of flicker like she was in the air.

The flowers are from my stash, and I added a little dress charm to the flowers. The leaves are sprayed with Tattered Angels iridescent gold glimmer mist.

I wanted to make it a larger card so i made a regular 15cm X 15 cm and added a same size card on so it forms a 'Z' shape. This way i can pop on a background for Tilda's dance but also get the grand sparkly 90 on too and somewhere to write!

I embossed with Zig embossing powders in Scarlet a pair of a crown, ballet shoes and a ribbon both of which are from Magnolia. The dies used...the trim that acts as a curtain is from Magnolia as is the die used for the feathers (cant be a show gal without feathers!)  as is the leaves. The centre die cut is from Spellbinders as is the piece Tilda is coloured on.

The lovely glittery 90 is cut from a Tim Holtz die.

Hope you have a great weekend.
