I have chosen another stamp from Magnolia to colour called rosebud Tilda and kitty kit from the Spring Fever Collection . I have coloured her with distress inks to match the lovely papers from Pion's Easter Blessings designer papers from Live & Love Crafts .


The base was made with papermill linen card where I have matted the papers onto. For the panels I have used another pretty design on top of the large die from the Vintage box 2 from Magnolia . Then I have added the Cherry Blossom Doohickey die with a flower die attached with a tiny brad again from the Vintage box ....The butterflies are also from that box !! I have also used some Prima bronze beads in the center of the flowers dipped in some soft gel medium this is my new glue just love this stuff !! 


I have added white lace on the front from Papermania and the lilac lace is from LLC on the back of the card . The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts and I used a gelato crayon to colour them to match her dress .The cute envelope is from the box and the cat charm from Magnolia with a daub of gesso and lastly a bow to finish with enamel dot .
