So for my card I have used this sweet Tilda with Butterfly Dress from the Magnolia Butterfly Dreams collection. I coloured Tilda with my Copic markers and cut them image out with my Nestibilities and then cut a mat with my Fiskars Circle cutter and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz paper Distressing tool. I also inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I used Echo Park Paper Co. For the record papers. I inked all the edges of my papers with Powder Puff Amaretto ink.  I used some Twinery Twine and a BasicGrey button. I Added some Prima flowers with one WOC flowers. and some half pearls.  The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and I also used my My Favorite Things Die-namics Notebook Edge border die along the edge of the sentiment. I have also added Stickles to the image.

Here is the inside...another Melissa France rub-on and more Prima flowers!
