Tilda with Pony Tail Card with Handmade Flowers

Good morning everyone. I haven't been too active on my blog posts lately due to family illness and family visiting. However, my schedule turns back to normal now, so my schedule should turn back to normal again until September when I am off for a weekend for my nephew's wedding.

Today I am sharing with you a card using the cute Tilda with Pony Tail from Magnolia-licious. For something different, I handmade some flowers to use for part of my embellishment for this card. I came across THIS BLOG for the fabulous flower tutorial and couldn't resist to try it.

Here is my finished card. I am also using this card for challenges too, please scroll down to the bottom of this blog post for the challenges.

Here are the handmade flowers I learned from the tutorial link above. For the colored ones I used distress ink to inked each petal before assemble them together. For the plain white one, I either leave them plain in white and added stickle or spray them with glitter mist to change their colors.
