Tears for our Tilda

Over at the Magnolia Lovers Challenge this time the theme is Lace and at the Over at the Magnolia Down under the theme is Lace and flowers.
Here on this card I used some lace that was given to me by my lovely friend Trisha from Canada I also used a lace doilie and to take the lace theme to the extreme I used 6 brass eyelets to make holes so I could lace the Prima DP up with twine after distressing all the edges and stapling them with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to give this card a really shabby looking edge
I also made a glass pearl/bead Dangle with a zip pull charm hanging , I finished off with some roses from Woc , leaves cut from SU DP with an MS punch , Gems from MAMBI and a large BG button threaded with SU twine and a Tim Holtz Addage ticket.
This beautiful Tilda is of course coloured with Copic markers
I hope you Tilda loverss have a fab day
