First Monthly Magnolia Challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp :-)



I have had this container for ages waiting to be pimped !! :-)So thank you Just Magnolia Challenge for making me get on and do it !! :-) The papers and flowers are papermania and whitewash coredinations. I coloured the butterflies in a little and added blue stickles. The flowers were coloured with blue brilliance ink and the centers were dolloped with pink distress stickles :-)

The tilda image was coloured with copics, 3D'd and layered onto nestie circles. ( This is me thinking about which pen to choose next) Well it might have been a few decades ago !! lol :-)

Simon Says Stamp Store are sponsoring this challenge and I hope I am lucky in the draw !!! :-) Heidi is offerring a $50 shopping spree WOOO HOOO !!! :-) So please don't enter cos then there'd be less chance of me winning it !!! lol

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Happy Birthday Penny Black Saturday :-)

I made this card for the Penny Black Challenge who are celebrating their 1st Birthday following the fabby sketch by Michelle O on the Spoonfull Of Sugar Challenge :-)
I just realised that I missed being able to enter the DT blog candies as we had to have them linked by 8am ! I actually made this yesterday and didn't upload it ,,,, :-(

I made this card using tyher gorgeous PB Bubble of Joy stamp. I coloured it with copics and 3D'd him :-)

All the patterned papers are from Basic Grey Porcelain book and I also used brown/pink coredinations, I love this stuff !!

The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of the card I used for the base using a stamp from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set

All the edges of all the card and papers were inked with antique linen distress ink. The flowers are prima ones and the velvet brad is Laura Ashley. I also used a few Robins Nest Dew Drops
