Magnolia card

Welcome to my very first post. A good friend persuaded me to have a go at creating a blog and to enter some of the crafting challenges that appear to be extremely popular at the moment, because they are great fun - so here we go. I hope you will enjoy seeing some of my efforts and that you will return regularly to see what I have been up to otherwise I will end up talking to myself!!! Please leave comments if you wish as I would love to know what you think.

I am entering the above card in the Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar Challenge.

I coloured the Magnolia image with Copics in the following colours:

Skin E21, E00, E000 and R20

Hair E53, E51 and E50

Dress B05, B04 and BG01

Trousers BG49, BG15 and BG10

Parcel RV04 and RV02

Then I added lots of glitter.

The solid colour papers are from Pink Petticoat and the patterned one is from My Craft Studio Tattered Lace CD.

The sentiment Stamp is from Lily of The Valley.

I gathered up some old lace I had in my stash and adorned it with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Hope you like it!

I am off now to do some blog hopping. See you soon. x
