Favourite Things for TioT

Hello,  it's our first challenge of the year at Try it on Tuesday and to get you back into the crafting mood, we just want you to use your favourite things and tell us what they are.

Any regular visitors will know I love Vintage, inky and embossed backgrounds and I always love adding flowers, so I've combined them all on this card.

I only used Shaded Lilac Distress ink for the background, the stencilled and embossed flowers were coloured with Peeled Paint and Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick for the flowers.  I've used one of Tim's paper dolls along with some ephemera and the flowers were cut with the tiny tattered floral dies, coloured with Did and sprays.

The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, you won't be disappointed.
