Tilda with my new stash!

Sorry for the delay in posting, have been feeling pretty terrible the past few days but crafting this has put a smile back on my face :-)
I used my new Nesties, Magnolia dies and My Minds Eye papers I bought in the sale :-)
My other supplies I used were Coredinations 'Gemstones' card, Coredinations 'Chocolate box' card, Brown textured card, a little brad, a couple of flowers, a heart button, a gem and a 3d butterfly. A stamped Tilda coloured in promarkers too.
I put the chocolate and gemstone card through my cuttlebug with my new nestibilities, then ran the chocolate card back through in a Cuttlebug 'Swiss dots' embossing folder. I then did the same with the Magnolia dies but also chose to put the gemstones petal through with the chocolate one so they were both dotty :-) Last for my cuttlebug was the gemstones card used with a Magnolia border die.
I then used distress ink around the edges of my white card blank, and sanded the embossed dots to distress them which shows the aqua tones of the coredinations card beneath the chocolate surface.
I mounted the textured brown card onto the white card blank, then the MME papers on top. Mounting tilda on the nesties shapes came next, and I added a card rose covered in white shimmer chalks on the left hand bottom corner, then a heart shaped pearlised button, and an aqua pearl in the top right hand corner. I then added the pretty border and finished it with a pretty flower I made with the magnolia die cut flowers, and a light blue and white paper flower. Last was the 3D butterfly fluttering by to finish-woo sorry this has come out really complicated!
