Magnolia Aussie Tilda - Thinking of You Card

Hi guys!
I have a card to share today, that isn't my usual style... If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen it! But here it is none the less- 
I started out stamping the new addition (to my stamp family) is this Aussie Tilda, from Magnolia Stamps. I coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir Markers, and then did a dotty border around her... 
I then built my card up.... I grabbed some patterned paper from My Minds Eye, and doodle a border around it. The rest of the card was made up with lots of yummy bits and bobs from Alacraft! I used some lace, that is very similar to this one, then tied a little bow using this pretty satin ribbon in 6mm, I added a craft flower, this one is made out of polyster fabric, I think I'll be using these a lot... They add the real wow factor! I added a second flower, and a apricot button from my stash, as well as a decorative pin. 
I attached everything using this tape, which is perfect for paper crafting, as it doesn't lose it's stickiness like some can in warm/humid weather. I finished off my card with a trio of pearl embellishments above the main image panel. These ones come attached in a row, which is a great way to use them, but, I always trim them apart to get the most out of a pack!
