Pretty in Pink Tilda Birthday Card

To create this cutie Tilda card, I firstly coloured Tilda using Promarkers and used pearlescent chalks to give some shimmery colour and sparkle around her and a lovely warm glow around the candles, I used Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink to edge the oval. I cut 3 pieces of designer papers from Dovercrafts Back to Basics selection along with some co-ordinating backing card. I edged the pink papers with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink and the purple section with Pearlescent Lavender. I mounted all of the designer paper and card backing layers along with the ribbon to form the background design.

I then cut the birthday sentiment section using a Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and the flower centre from Nellie Snellen's Circle Frames dies. I edged both cut shapes with Pearlescent Purple and stamped the "Birthday Wishes" using the same ink. I cut the flowers using a Joy! Crafts flowers dies set, edged them all using the pearlescent inks, layered up and finished off with pearl centres. The two butterflies were cut using two of the Butterflies from Marianne Creatables set of 4 butterflies, I cut them from white card and coloured them using promarkers, blinged them up with Diamond Stickles and finished with some pearls. I then added the sentiment, flowers and butterflies to the card and added a few more pearls just to finish off.
