Tilda, pets and lots of frills!

Hi, hope everyone is ok,
Although it's raining outside as I type, my card today is bright and cheery. I've got loads to do this week: housework, playschool jobs, card/projects and taking my son for a small operation on his foot! Today is the only free day so I'm taking a deep breath ready to launch myself into all that I need to do and will be ready to collapse in a heap by the weekend!
Anyway back to my card, certain challenges inspired me to make it and I must admit it took me out of my comfort zone a bit. I don't usually do lace, but I've just blitzed my kids out-grown clothes and Jasmine used to have frilly knickers to wear over her nappies.....instantly I'm surrounded by mounds of lace! I think I may have over dosed for the lace challenges just a tad - nearly everything I used was either made out of lace or called lacy, hope it's not too much for you!

Supplies: Go Kreate shaped card die
Papers- Magnolia; Something Old, Something New - Something Old, borrowed and blue
Basic Grey; Origins
Magnolia Doo Hickey - Antique Lace
Nesties - Lacy Squares
LOTV - Sentiment
SU and TH Distress Inks plus my new Inkssentials opaque white pen(don't look too closely, haven't perfected it's use yet!)
Tilda was kindly loaned to me by Fleur (thanks sooo much x)
Magnolia dog with butterfly
Flowers and lace from stash

Challenges I'm entering:
Totally Tilda - Tilda with her cat or dog
Just Magnolia - Make it Lacy
Bunny Zoe's - Lace
Magnolia Down Under - Favourite things(LOTV sentiments, new Magnolia dog stamp, flowers, shaped card die, nesties.......)
