Shabby Chic Tilda - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello peeps,
Happy 4th July to all my American friends :)
I have a big smile on my face right now as the postie has just delivered my DT spend and a few lovely things I treated myself too while I was shopping. I ordered lots of pretty sparkly things this time which are too gorgeous to put away out of sight so I might just have to sit & smile at them for a bit lol.

Today is new challenge day at 
& this week we challenge you to make

My teamies & I are featuring Tim Holtz products on our creations this week, if you have them we'd love to see them but as always it isn't compulsory to use them on your creations.
Ingredients -
Twine - Hemptique
Large Brad - American Crafts
Pinwheel Posy - Memory Box
Mittens - CC Designs
Snowflakes - MS Aspen PATP
Lace - Prima
Sparkle - diamond Stickles
I am so out of practice at colouring with distress inks as I always reach for my copics these days, but I love the distress markers they are perfect for adding shading.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 in store spending spree in the fabby 
Don't forget to keep an eye on the STORE BLOG peeps for lots of inspiration, featured & new products & chances to win candy.
