Magnolia Mini World Wedding Tilda

Hi There
Today to share is the quickest card EVER for two DT Challenges.
Firstly is MDUC where the challenge is Tic- Tac -Toe and the Ribbon Girls Magnolia Challenge which is a girly card.
Ive so much going on behind the scenes at the moment with Magazine projects etc and preparation for a couple of trips coming up, that my blog has to take a back seat. I did think I wouldn't make it in time for this weekends challenges, but I got there in the end.
Ive made a Mini card, though you cant tell with the picture. Ive used a Tilda from Magnolia Mini World 'Wedding Tilda' which was a birthday gift off my friend Camilla. (Thankyou )
I really do love the mini world Tilda's and they are especially good for quick cards when you don't have much time:D
For the rest of my card here is what I used
From the Ribbon Girls Shop-I used 20mm Pearl &Diamante round embellishment, 'Gemma' Dusty Pink Floral Flat Lace, Ivory Lace and Pearl Trim, Cheesecloth, Pink Seam Binding and Pale Pink Open Roses.
Dies-Magnolia Doohickey View Master, Jolly Tags and Jolly Tags
Frame from my stash
Thankyou so much for looking
