Midweek Magnolias DT #101 Glitter/Lace/Pearls Midway Reminder

Good morning my dears,  I'm here today to remind you that there is still another week to enter our current challenge over at 

Our theme is Glitter/Lace/Pearls.  

I've recycled an old chocolate box and created a card to compliment it.  I chose Angel Tilda with Gloria as my image and I must confess this is the first time I've inked her up!!!!  so she is making her debut today!!  I've coloured her using Copics and Derwent pencilsoft pencils this time. 

My papers are from a very old Anna Griffiths scrapbook collection. The flowers are made using Heartfelt Creations Vintage morning background stamp & a matching die.  I used my McGills tool kit to shape them, adding gesso paint to the tips and dipping them into Glamour dust for the sparkle.  I even made my own candy for the large flowers using my embossing tool. 


Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you had a pleasant stay and found a little inspiration.

Have a wonderful day everyone.
