Just Magnolia challenge #1 & CCT #56

I am so excited about this post as it is my entry to the first ever Magnolia only challenge, if you have been following my blog you will have probably noticed that I am a big fan of Magnolia stamps (funny as i never liked them to begin with) so this challenge blog is the best news ever. The design team are fantastic, nearly all my favourites in 1 place!!!

Anyway, the first challenge was a sketch by Donalda, I love Donalda's sketches and this one is amazing. I have got to say I am really please with how this card came out, the colour scheme was dictated by my new prima hydrangeas i got from Stampaholics in Perth, Scotland (fab shop) and whilst I was there I picked up a Basic Grey Wisteria paper pad which co-ordinates perfectly with them. You can then always rely on Stampin Up to have a cardstock in the right colour, with matching ribbon and ink, how did I ever live without stampin up!!!).

I am also entering my prize blooms into the cute card Thursday challenge which is a flower theme (my second entry)

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp: Tilda with Lamb
  • Sentiment: from Very Versatile by Stampin Up (mini catalogue)
  • Cardstock: Stampin up Elegant Eggplant
  • Ribbon: Stampin Up grosgrain 1/4" Elegant Eggplant
  • DP: Basic Grey Wisteria
  • Accesories: Prima Hydrangea's decorated with crystal stickers pearles
  • Tools: nestie dies for layering
  • Colouring medium: Letraset Promarkers, white ink essentials pen to highlight

Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave a comment as you pass through as I love reading them.
