oops.... cooking up a storm with Tilda

So, I'm still not sue how I feel about this card. It's one of those ones where I had to walk away and come back a few times. I am happier with the finished product than I thought I would be, I came very close to scrapping it a few times along the way, lol, it's a love hate relationship sometimes!

I have played along using the sketch over at Just Magnolia, but I really relied on Kellie's DT card for my inspiration, went with the round mat instead of square, swapped a few elements around but I hope overall you get the idea :)
this card also plays along with Creative card crew challenges and Simon says challenges who want you to use punches. I have used my MS doilie punch under the lace, you can see it a bit more in real life, it is a bit hidden in this pic.
I did a bit of sewing around the edge of the DP but it blended in a but with the paper colour and does not really show up in the pic. If you look closely, squint, hop up and down on one foot and stick your thumb in your ear you can almost see it :) Don't you just love the DP, I adore it! It's magnolia from Magnolia Down Under store, you can also get the cutie oops Tilda there, and the ticket is from bizzy becs digi store, all links are in my side bar :)

You know your right when I did look closely, squint, hop up and down on one foot and stick my thumb in my ear I could see it, wow thats am,amazing how that can happen, BAHAHAHA..... I must admit had a little blush when I read you found my card an inspiration, very flattered I was, I am lacking to see where the troubles you had because even if you did the end result is absolutely, fricken, fabulously, gorgeous! I love everything about it Fran from your colouring, to the doily (HUGE fan!) to the flowers, everything, LOVE it!
