Country Girl Masked Step Card

Hello Everyone

I have made this step card using two of the new cuties from the country girl collection.
That I bought from Swedish house crafts.

Be warned, this post is a little picture and chat heavy, if your time is of the essence, then please click on the first picture and scroll though. 

I have used two of the country girl Tildas and my molly blooms seed tray background. 
All my papers are lemon craft and I have coloured everything with Copics.

Sitting Tilda with clogs is masked onto my Molly Bloom background. I have stamped around the edge using one of the magnolia stamps from the unicorn collection and the sentiment is from my stampelglede stamps. 

How cute is Tilda with flower in her pocket? 

I made my own tassel and as I didnt have any of the pink background paper left, I cut a white one and distressed and stamped it on both sides with pink & Cocoa pigment ink, using the same background stamp, that i have used on the image.
 Looks quite similar, there are 2 tags both cut from the same card/paper and I have tied the edges of my own hand dyed seam binding with hemp twine, one has a strawberry charm too!

There are lots of other pretty details that you can see too!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a weekend!
