Tears for Tilda

Over at the Magnolia Lovers Challenge this time the theme is Lace and at Magnolia Down under the theme is Lace and flowers.
Here on this card I used some lace that was given to me by my lovely friend Trisha from Canada I also used a lace doilie and to take the lace theme to the extreme I used 6 brass eyelets to make holes so I could lace the Prima DP up with twine after distressing all the edges and stapling them with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to give this card a really shabby looking edge
I also made a glass pearl/bead Dangle with a zip pull charm hanging , I finished off with some roses from Woc , leaves cut from SU DP with an MS punch , Gems from MAMBI and a large BG button threaded with SU twine and a Tim Holtz Addage ticket.
This beautiful Tilda is of course coloured with Copic markers

Hi Susie,
Got a bit of a signal so took the opportunity to say what a fabulous card I think this is. My distressing always looks such a mess but this is stunning. Love the lace up DP - very clever.
