Tilda With Love Cake - Birthday Card & Apron Set

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It is the last Sunday of the month and we have a
new Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
The theme this week is an easy one ~ Add Flowers.

I made a birthday card and apron gift set  for a special lady
~ our Ribbon Girl Mary who had her birthday recently.
I used Tilda with Love Cake on both the card and apron.

The tag card measures 4.5" x 6".
I colored the image with Distress Ink Pads.
I decorated the card with a mini apron, recipe book,
flowers, die cuts, paper punch outs and
a dinky metal clip to hold the sentiment.
I used the LO from CLP March sketch #56.

For the image on the apron, I stamped the image on TAP
(Leslie Riley's Transfer Artist Paper), and colored it with Copic markers.
I then ironed the image on a piece of white fabric.

The Tilda and mini apron panel can be removed for separate washing.
I used a Butterick pattern for the apron .
The patch work fabric is from a local quilting store.

The following products are available at The Ribbon Girl:
13 mm White fine vintage style cluny lace, 15 mm White flower fine cluny lace, 
32mm 'Victoria' Antique White Fine Cluny Lace, Natural botton twine,
White and pink tulip seam binding ribbons, Pale rose pink tiny ric rac ribbon,
WOC Deep pink cherry blossom, Pink pretty blossom,White sweetheart blossom.

I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
