A pop-up card with Tilda and sparkle

There is a new Magnolia Only challenge over at the Ribbon Girl blog - add sparkle - my favourite thing! I coloured Tilda with copics and added Stardust Stickles then frantage - see below.  I added 5mm sparkly gems in the flower centres and a 15mm sparkly button tied on with pink Divine Bakers Twine.  For the first time ever I tried some frantage and oh dear! as you can see Tilda's hair has been frantaged as well as the edge of my oval!  I used a diecut Doohickey swirl, flowers and a heart tag, plus dusky pink flat lace, 7mm satin ribbon and tiny ric rac.  

My flower arrangement inccludes a flower from Marshmallow Mix Anenome (the centre has gold beads which I painted white), pink sparkly crystal stem, RG beaded stamens in pink and white, WOC 20mm open roses and baby pink sweetheart blossoms -  also you can see where the frantage powder got into  Tilda's hair - I'll know next time to sprinkle it more carefully!

My new pop-up die arrived yesterday - I decorated the 'pop-up' section in the middle with more doohickey flowers and 5mm clear crystals - I don't usually decorate the inside of my cards but always admire those made by the other Ribbon Girls and I thought I should have a go and I'm already thinking of various ways to use this new die set! (and thank you Andrea for pointing out I would also need the extra long plates before I could use it,  imagine having the die set and the insert and not being able to use it 'cos I didn't have the right plates :-(

I hope you will find time to pop over to the Ribbon Girl blog because the inspiration by the DT is phenomenal and we have two fabulous prizes for our randomly chosen winner:

Beautifully designed pop up card Mary. Your Tilda is such a sweetie, all the flowers and embellies are color coordinated. Love the frantage effect.
