Hi everyone, these weeks are flying by, it's time for a challenge at Midweek Magnolias. Before I show you my card I want to tell you about the changes over there, we've got a load of new teamies and we're going to be split into two teams. Our challenge this week is a recipe, 3 flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.

I've coloured Summer Flower Tilda with Distress Markers and limited edition Peacock Feathers reinker. The silk ribbon, top stitch thread, button twine and 5mm Pearls are all from The Ribbon Girl. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The paper is from Maja Design, and the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz distress tool. I tend not to do buttons, and what I could find didn't match the paper and then I remembered I had some button dies from Marianne design, so I cut them out from some scraps of Bazzill and then triple embossed with UTEE.

Pop over to Midweek Magnolias and have a look at the inspiration that the whole DT have provided, you must agree that we have had some amazing talent join our team. I'm entering this card into the anything goes challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge, the sewing challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge, the buttons and bows challenge at Whimsey Stamps Challenge, anything goes at Simon Says Stamp and Show  and Girls Girls Girls at Bunny Zoes Crafts.
