Challenge #42

Happy Sunday,

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend, it's time once again for another challenge at Lovely hAnglar and Sweet Magnolia, yes that's right over at Lovely hAnglar Only we now want to see your Magnolia creations too. This fortnight the prize available is a £10 voucher over at Quixotic Paperie. We want to see your creations were the image is in black, white and grey and everything else is in colour.

Here's my card,

I've coloured this cute sailor girl in with Black Soot Distress ink, carefully cut her out and then went around the cut edge with a black pen, I find this finishes it off nicely and hides any bits that you've not cut quite right.

The papers are from Maja design, again, I can't get enough of these gorgeous papers lately. The flowers are from Wild Orchid craft and the twine is from the ribbon girl. The shell charm was a gift. The corners are from a discontinued quickutz die and the swirl is a doohickey die.

Pop over to Lovely hAnglar and Sweet Magnolia and have a look at the gorgeous creations the rest of the team have made.
