Basic grey Tilda Topper

.I hope you all had a fabby New Year bloggers ! Its that time of year that we make resolutions and within the week we have broken them ! ... well ive decided just to try harder and lose abit of weight ! Im thinking of joining my local gym - and since my mum and daughter have just already joined , it will be a great way to catch up with both of them ...... and we will proberly stay for lunch and a coffee ..... which means il have just eaten what ive just been panting and sweating off  !! heheeeeeee ..... i can see this not really working out cant you ? lol
Today id like to share a topper i made ..
I have'nt used this little tilda in ages ... and thought it time to ink her up.. Ive been like everyone else waiting for the new magnolia collection to come out ..and im so sick that i didnt order the winter club kit ! 
I was too late and Calvin has ordered the spring one for me as a treat ( by the way he has actually blogged !)
So if anyone has a spare winter club kit for sale please email me - id be interested !
anyway , back to the topper , as you can see ive used flower soft and inked and distressed the paper edges. The sentiment is metal.
Ive also added some flower soft to the bloom - i thought it made it look quite pretty .

I've bowed some wired ribbon and used a tim holtz flourish underneth it .The papers are 
basic grey cappella. The button is a mother of pearl effect shell.
I'd like to enter this topper into these challenges
Just magnolia - anything goes
Totally tilda - ribbon and roses.

This topper is available on EBAY

Hi Maddy, stunning topper :-) As for going to the gym, at least you can still tone up your muscles even if you later eat the calories you've just burned off, plus you'll be meeting up with your loved ones :-)
