Cause I love you Tilda........

Romantic Lace Doo Hickeys.
Memory Box Butterfly Delights.
Papers and flowers- Luxury Maja Sofiero gift box.
Morning all!

I've been for a lovely walk with my BF's pawsy peep and now I've got some time t blog away my latest make.

This card is for my fabulous MIL. I wanted to do something a little different and super special with some of my scrumptious Magnolia bits for her and my little Lou head cogs were ticking away with a tutorial that I have used many times and still adore by Dawn Griffith, the shadow box tutorial. It's such a wonderful little card because of the depth in that little window piece.

I put my own spin on the base card pieces by using my new Recipe Card Doo Hickeys with the Dream Tag Doo Hickeys for the cut out window! super yey because it looks sooo cute!! I used the cut out part of the Dream Tag to write our message on for the back piece with a few of the little hearts from my Romantic Lace Doo Hickeys glued on along the bottom (....I don't know why this lace die is retired, its truly a stunner with those little magical hearts).
I fussy cut my little Lovely Emojis Cause I Love you Tilda out and then popped her out on some foam so she stands out. I paper pieced her little heart in her hand with a scrap of the paper left from the card base and then sparkled it up with some glitter before glossy accent'ing it for extra pretties!! then it was onto some hold gently, use very carefully flowers from Mary and Andrea over at the Ribbon Girl. I love these little flowers!! they came in my Luxury Maja Sofiero gift box that my beautiful friend Wendy got me for my birthday.

 I added a couple of strips of a grass die around her feet but you can't see them too well in the piccies, you can just see them inside the window on the piccy above and then I used a couple more scraps of the paper to cut out some little butterflies with my Memory Box Butterfly Delights die.

Right, time for me to scoot! I have some bits I need to do today (....mainly finishing off undercoating my kitchen, hoovering and steam mopping but I can make it sound exciting by saying I have some bits to do!! lol!!!). Thank you so much for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx
