Magnolia card 'Tilda with chicken and egg scene'

Hi all - today I have a spring themed Magnolia card I have made with all my new goodies I have just ordered! Loving the new Little Easter collection & this is one of my fave Tildas from the collection. Card is in shabby chic style with distressed & stiched edges.

I have used 3 images 'Tilda with chicken and egg' from the 'With Love `13' collection, 'Stone Path' from the 'Butterfly Dreams '11' collection and a Wishing well stamp by The Pixie Coattage, images have been layered using masking technique, then coloured with Distress Inks and highlighted with Picket Fence Distress glitter by Tim Holtz. Here's a closer look at the card without the removable tags...
  The Tilda image is so beautiful and the background stamps are just great for creating cut little scenes - loving this masking and layering technique at the mo - the possibilities are endless!
The mini-alphas spelling 'spring' are by Pink Paisly from Craftie Charlie. Below shows hindge die from the Tim Holtz Alterations collection, cut from grunge paper, painted white then covered with Picket Fence Crackle Paint and attached with pearl brad. I have also made a tulle 'hammock' to hold some berries by cutting a tulle strip & rolling in to a scroll formation, then tightly twisting and adhering each twist.
The fence die is by Magnoli cut from Core-dinations whitewash cardstock. The metal sentiment tab also by Tim Holtz has then been secured with white raffia, the spiral roses set with pearls trim is from The Ribbon Girl.
Most flowers are Kort & Godt, berries are Magnolia and larger grey flower is Prima. Notice the Tim Holtz tissue tape, I have stuck 3 strips, then removed the adhesive from the ends by pressing onto material several times, then curled the ends back.
