Just Magnolia's !! :-)

This is the 1st week of the new 'Just Magnolia' Challenge. Donalda made a fabulous sketch for us to use and will definitely use this one again :-)
I used Tilda with Magnolia's stamp !!! :-) I used a black memento ink pad and coloured her with copics, I 3D'd her head and arms/flowers. I added ivory flower soft to the flowers and I think she looks lovely :-) I stamped a field of tulips behind her too.I chalked the sky with pebbles inc pastel chalks.
The papers are Basic Grey and a little coredinations. The flowers are by Prisma and I also added some dew drops and a ribbon to finish:-) The sentiment is from Clare Curd's sentiment set, fab value for money !! :-)
I am also entering this card into the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge, the theme this week is 'Create a Scene', well I did I think :-)
The Tilda stamp, basic grey papers, flower soft, chalks, dew drops and nesties were all bought from Simon Says Stamp

Lili Of The Valley Challenge GD card :-)

This is my 1st card as Guest designer on the Lili Of The Valley Challenge,thanks so much to the team for choosing me and Claire to be Guest Designers :-) x x
Jo designed this fabulous sketch to work with :-) I decided to make a wedding card as wedding season has almost started :-)
I used ivory stardream card and a little gold/cream handmade paper that I bought from Binky Crafts. I stamped a Penny Black music script stamp onto vellum using gold brilliance and embossed with clear sparkle and used that for the 2 side panels. The image is Penny Black 'Daisy Chime'. I coloured the image with prisma pencils and then added artquest interference gold paint.
The flowers were made with a daisy punch and Stamping Up flat backed pearls for the centres. The swirly corners and leaves were cut out on my cricut. The congratulations text is also from Stamping Up.

The Design Team have made some wonderful creations for you to see so please pop over to see them :-)
