DT Magnolia~You are so special ~Tilda with Big Ribbon

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and I wish to take this opportunity to wish you who is celebrating it a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
I am out of town and luckily have chance to make a card of my favourite.
I used You are so special collection from Magnolia, the stamp is Tilda with Big Ribbon. She looks so pretty and I can't wait to color her with my favourite distress inks.

I stamped Tilda on 300gm aquerell paper with Tsukineko Memento Onxy Black ink.
Patterned paper from Magnolia patterned paper collection, ribbon was gift from my crafty friend Adeline Ng in Singapore,

I hand drawn two hearts on red cardstock, cut it out, then trace on pink paper to make another hearts, mat the hearts together and draw the stitches with white ink pen.
I stamped the sentiment " with all my love" on white cardstock, distressed with Ranger Ink Vintage Photo, draw the stitches with black ink pen around the paper and mat on red cardstock.

I made the paper flowers myself, you can see my paper flowers tutorial here. It's simple and easy to make. I also make some variations, distressed the flower with scissors, distressed with distress inks and I also used Magnolia patterned paper to make a flower too.

I had fun using Ranger distress inks to color Tilda.
Dress: Victorian Velvet
Shoe: Vintage Photo
Ribbon: Bundle Sage
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattared Rose
Lace: Pumice stone

I stamped the sentiment " with all my love" on cream paper to make a background and I also stamped the "Loving border " from the same collection on the top of the paper.

I hope that you have inpired and had fun to see my cards. I have make a full tutorial for this card how I make it, as some people keep asking me how I make my cards from the very beginning, such as selecting patterned paper to touch up with stickles:-)) So stay tune, tomorrow I will post a full tutorial.
Happy Crafting !
