Just Magnolia Week 139-Sketch Challenge

For my card for this weeks Just Magnolia- Sketch Challenge I have chosen some cheery springy paper perhaps in an attempt warm up as we are at the start of some pretty cold weather which is expected to last all week.I'm not sure which collection this Tilda is from but she reminds me that spring will come eventually. I've paired her with a papers from the Pretty Please Spring Paper pad from My Minds Eye and added a few Wild Orchid roses. The butterflies ad the perfect lively touch.

Make sure you pop over to the Magnolia blog to check out what the design team came up with and have some fun with the sketch this week.

Keep warm and have a great week.

Papertake Weekly Challenge " Die Cute"

I've had the idea to make this card in my head since last year, but never really could figure out how to make it happen. I thought I had it figured out last December so I coloured the image but then my idea didn't really translate into what I wanted. Then at Christmas my lovely friend Jean gave me a Christmas card where the center popped forward and bingo today I had a light bulb moment and decided to reverse the pattern so that the middle popped back.

After I had the card cut the rest came together just the way I wanted with the tule edges and the die cut swirls peaking over the edges and white and pale pink flowers tucked in to highlight the image.

Sorry the picture isn't that great, I guess in my hurry to get a picture before the sun disappeared I didn't quite get it focused, but I did get it to show the glitter which is rare.

I'm entering it in the Papertake weekly Challenge -Die Cute. Check it out and join in, its easy to add a die cut to your card.

Hope your weekend was a good one!

Just Magnolia Week #138

So its that time again over at Just Magnolia for their special monthly challenge as always anything goes. This time they have added the option of using something new or making a New Years card I chose to use some new flowers I bought at crop night last night.

I tried taking several pictures of this card to show the 3D layers it has as it steps back, but none really show this. I've used stamps from the fairy Tale collection. Still my favorite to make Girls B-Day cards. This one is for my Niece who turns 2 tomorrow
so I wanted it to be fairytale inspired with lots of glitter and the look of a pop-up book from the front.

I love how it turned out and will be making more, but man do they take at alot of colouring.

Thanks for stopping by hope everyone's New Year is off to a good start.Make sure you check out what the DT did this week as there are some really neat cards.
