Deep Ocean - Letter 'B'

Hi all - today it's time for another challenge over at Deep Ocean. Thanks to everyone who entered last time - you continue to impress us with the standard of beautiful. This weeks challenge is to use things that begin with the letter 'B', so bows, buttons, birdies, butterflies, blue, brown etc. etc. 
I'm so chuffed that my new Magnolia Valentines stamps came last week that I just ADORE!!! Each collection continues to excel itself & I keep thinking well surely they can't do better than that this time...but again they proove me wrong & come up with Tildas twice as gorgeous as the last! Magnolia you are AWESOME!!!

My B's are Beauty, Bow (and arrow!), berries, buttons & beads...
...and here's a closer look...

This is Bonny Tilda my fave stamp from the With Love collection 2013, coloured with Distress Inks & highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust.

The flowers are a mixture of kort & godt, Prima, WOC & Kaisercraft.
To achieve the ripped detail with the berries, I used a small Spellbinders Fuer de Lies die & trimmed in half on the diagonal, I then ripped down the center into a kind of 'v' shape, then inked the edges with Antique Linen & Walnut Stain, I then shaped the pieces, glued in place & stuck the berries inside to give the effect of the berries 'growing' through the paper.
Beautiful key charm is by Tim Holtz & the glass pebbles have been handmade from the same papers, then adhered onto a Mother of pearl button.

I'd like to enter into the following challenges:

Totally Tilda - Valentines Tilda
Magnolia Mania - Anything Goes (option of hearts)
Tildas Town - Anything Goes
Songbird - Hoplessly Devoted to You
Stampin for the Weekend - Something Metal
