Magnolia v Stampavie Week 17 "Carla's Sketch"

This week over on the Magnolia v Stampavie Challenge Blog there is a sketch provided by Carla. Formy card I have used two of the new Easter collection by Magnolia, all images have been coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Worn Lipstick/Shabby Shutters/Peeled Paint (Dress)
Mustard Seed (Socks & Hair Bows)
Black Soot (Lamb)
Tea Dye (Sign Post)
Weathered Wood/Mustard Seed (Birds)
Peeled Paint/Fired Brick (Grass & Fungi)
I have used pattered paper from a DCWV paper stack and also coredinations cardstock, sanded at the edges and also put a piece of it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder, aand then sanded it. For the sentiment I have used one of the Stampin' Up Hostess Set "Best Yet". To finish off I have added the following embellishments...Primas Blossoms held with a brad & spacer, Anita's organze & satin ribbons (only 69p per reel) some pearl bling and a pearl pin (from The Range). Tilda has been raised on 3D foam to add additional dimension to the card.

Below is a picture of the decorated inside...
I love the sketch and think I may just have to use it again...thanks Carla.
