Hi everyone, today I have a card that practically made itself.

I'm entering this into four challenges, firstly Magnolia-licious where there is a blue and brown colour theme. Just Magnolia and hAnglar stAnglar where they want you to use a doily. TOMIC where there is a friendship theme, and they want you to use a doohickey die and finally MDUC where there is a great sketch to follow.

The gorgeous blue and brown DP are from Maja Road, I've had them for a while and once again I had to convince myself that I actually buy the paper to make cards with and not just to look at, lol. I've also used several slightly different shades of Kraft, just to tie in with the brown theme. I've also used some bazzil bling card too. The doily has been cut out using a cheery Lynn die, these dies are just amazing with all of the detail on them.

The small tag has been stamped with a stamp from Lili of the Valley, I think the sentiment is from there too. I've used two magnolia doohickey border dies, and the tag die is also a doohickey. This is the first time I've attempted this style of card, and I really like it. The large die is from Go Kreate, I resisted any form of distressing this time, just in case I made a pigs ear out of it, and more importantly wasted that delish paper, lol. But, I do really like it, and I will defo be doing this style again. I've also used a couple of flowers and leaf swirls both cut out with doohickey dies, and the rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the seam binding. The small heart charm I picked up off eBay.

Tilda with a Daisy has been coloured in with distress inks, with the slightest hint of glamour dust around her hem.

Thanks for looking,

  5. Hi Becky
    I just love the shape of the card, also the colour's that you have used are scrummy.
    I just CAN'T believe that the card practically made itself (you are way too modest).
    I agree with you (regarding the Cherry Lynn die's), although I have to say the Memory Box die's are a very close second.
