Tilda Says Your the Bees Knees and DT Call

Good Evening,

I don't usually post twice in one day however, I am so excited about applying for a DT call over at  Inky Impressions!  I had a great time making this card. As you can see Tilda is really stylin' and all ready for some summer fun! I chose to make an easel card. 

I  used stitching around the base of my card; I chose a floss that would compliment the DP.  To complete the look of Tilda's beanie I added Perfect Pearls. I also used them on the lace of  honey jar to create some interest and depth. Her wings, antennas and black stripes all were finished with glitter. I used Sunflower Glimmer Mist on the chipboard butterfly. And this was my first time using cheesecloth; I really liked the finished look.
