Tilda's Town Challenge #52 - Something Old, Something New...

I'm late as usual but I've finally managed to finish my card..
You won't believe what happened..
My Tilda was all coloured up when I spilled a glass of water over the image..
I'm glad there was no one near me because I was screaming like a crazy..
I had to start all over again today and that's why I'm so late with my project for this week's Tilda's Town Challenge..
The theme is Something Old, Something New..
I have some new papers, a brand new stamp, my new Frantage..
For the old part: my dies, punches, flowers etc.

Here she is:

I've used the new Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers..
The stamp is called Tilda Longstocking and she's from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013..

I never get tired of making criss cross cards..
And I never get tired of using my Spellbinders Ovals - normal and scalloped..
The Old Swedish Lace is one of my all time favourite Doohickey's..

I've used one of the Spellbinders Fancy tags to make that 'handle' that's used to pull out the inside of the card..
As you can see all the paper edges are distressed.. I use Walnut Stain Distress Ink for that..
And then machine sewn..

Hidden down there is a gorgeous border made with a Martha Stewart punch..
And the lace.. I have no words to describe that.. It's just perfect..
The pearls are from Rayher..

All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts except one..
The chrysanthemum is from Kort & Godt and so is the Pearl Spray..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
List of colours:
Weathered Wood
Pumice Stone
Vintage Photo
Tattered Rose
Antique Linen
Walnut Stain
Milled Lavender
Dusty Concord

I hope you've noticed that this is the very first time I use the Fran-tage..
And what can I say.. I LOVE IT!!!!
I wanna Fran-tage everything in the house now.. :)
There are two butterflies on the card..
The big one made with a MS punch and the small one boooh.. Anyway.. I had to Frantage those too..
Aren't they gorgeous??
It's like they weren't made out of paper..
This is the Shabby White Embossing Enamel but I already have more colours on my shelf.. LOL!

That's all for now..
