Challenge Card

First of 2 posts tonight-the next is a DT card later on!

Well I've done a bit of crafting just for me today! With the new Hougie Board-it came yesterday but I was working all day so couldn't play!

Anyhoo back to the's a stepper...soooo much easier with the Hougie let me tell you!

I haven't done a Tilda in ages and had so much fun with this one!

Isn't she sweet?

As I said the stepper took very little time itself, the board is brilliant (although I don't think I'm done gripeing about the 'lady' who sold it to me!)

Okies, the deets.....

I used a 300gsm linen textured card for the base and matted and layered with some  pretty yellow glitter card with some loverly backing paper-it's from my stash and honestly can't remember what it is, sorry. The main topper is my sweet little girl, coloured with Promarkers and literally covered in Glamour Dust, layered some gingham and white die cuts (I ditressed the edges of the white one with a die based ink pad), a punched out border and finished off with some little half pearls.

The bottom stepper is finished with some larger half pearls, the middle one took a little time. It has pleated white lace, some mimosa seam binding-from The Ribbon Girl, pearl trim, yellow paper roses interspersed with some little pearls. The top 'step' is finished with some die cut swirls, which were again distressed with the ink pad, some more little pearls and a sentiment topper-yes you've guessed it, distressed with the same ink pad and a touch of Glamour Dust to the tiny flowers and a big bow made from the seam binding.

I'm entering this one into the following challenges;

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes (with the option if adding glitter)-hmmm think I have that option covered lol)
