Pink and Green at Magnolia-licious

Hi Everyone!  Hope you've had a fabulous weekend and a great start to the week.  It's Tuesday and time for a Colour Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  This week our challenge colours are Pink & Green.

I've made a shadow box project featuring Tilda with Stuffed Animal available at Magnolia-licious. Isn't she just darling with her Spring hat and little lamb!

Tilda's coloured with Copics and the background sponged with wheat chalk and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  Flowers are a mixture of Primas and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I'm loving the lasercut chipboard butterfly and Love sentiment from Make-it-Crafty, which were sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks too.  Pearls are from my stash as are the Prima papers.  Here's a close-up.

I'm entering the following challenges:
Big Hugs,
