Tilda With Peony - Warm wishes!

Hello dear friends!
It’s been quite a long time since I posted a card on my blog. I’ve been having some problems with my right wrist and the pain won’t allow me to color and scrap for a very long time. It’s getting a bit better now and hopefully all the pain will be gone very soon.
I couldn’t resist and color one of my fav Tildas - Tilda with Peony. It took me several days to make my card and I suffered quite a lot due to my painful wrist. As always - I did the stitching by hand and all the butterflies were first stamped and then cut out – so quite a challenge with all the pain. Nevertheless I quite like the result given all the wrist problems. I hope you like my card too!

I’m entering my card to the following challenges:
SimonSays Stamp Challenge –Dotty
Sir Stampalot Challenge – Bring On the Bling
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Summer Days
Paper Play - Anything goes
Dutch Dare- Anything goes

All the paper roses were originally white. I sprayed them with Glimmer mist – Pearl (the white roses) and S.W.A.K (the pink ones). What a pity you can’t see all the shimmer!
I added some glitter to Tilda’s peony too using Copic Spica pen (02 pink).
