Elegance At Midweek Magnolias

Wednesday again so it's time for a new challenge at Midweek Magnolias, this week we want to see your 'Elegant' cards.

Tilda with Daisy and Mushrooms has been coloured using Distress Markers, I've used a Spellbinders Floral Oval die again to cut it out and distressed it using Walnut Stain Pad. I've used Riddersholm Design paper from the Chantilly Dawn Collection, available from Live & Love Crafts.

I've shaped the edge of the card using a Tim Holtz on the edge die. There's Vintage Scallop Lace across the middle and a few pieces of Roses Organza.

The flowers are by Kort og Godt and the Roses with Glass Pearls are available here. In the top flower arrangement I've built it up around a small length of Pearl String, the small flower arrangement at the bottom has a stunning Vintage Findings Beaded Centre. The Vintage Wood Butterfly has been painted with acrylic paint and then clear crackle pain with a fine sprinkling of glamour dust.

Pop over to Midweek Magnolias and have a look at the simply stunning creations my teamies have come up with, they will knock your socks off.
