Time For Tea

Good morning and a better one it seems to be. Please, please no more rain!!! This card I have made for the latest Lili of the Valley Challenge. The card is again an 8" x 8" scalloped square card (still my favourite) and I have added to this papers from My Craft Studio Tattered Lace CD (both papers are the same but I changed the colour for the pink sheet). The image is one of the Lili of the Valley toppers but I have changed the colours slightly with ProMarkers to meet the challenge. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the pearls. The scalloped layers were made using a Spellbinders Nestabilities die and these were added to a mat created with a Martha Stewart Around The Page Punch. I think that is everything covered so I am off now to get myself organised for work. See you soon.

Pink and Purple Tilda

Hello there, I've just rushed to finish this card as I wanted to enter it into the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Challenge. I have used one of the 8" x 8" scalloped cards and added papers from Pink Petticoat which I have edged with pastel pink cardstock. The image is one of my favourites from Magnolia which I have coloured using the following Copics:

E21, E00, E0000, RV21 for the skin
E35 and E31 for the hair
BV13 and BV000 for the dress and shoes
RV21 for her socks

The swirl has been created on the Cricut. The pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have coloured them purple with a ProMarker pen. The panels have been created using two Cuttlebug dies and the flower is the Magnolia Doiley Flower Die with a small brad inserted into the centre topped with a pearl.

See you soon.

Hello again, I have just returned from holiday so it has been sometime since I last posted a card but this is the one I sent to my daughter's friends who were recently getting married in Greece. The image I used is from Lili of the Valley and since it was a topper and there was no need to add colour I simply sprinkled with ultra fine glitter in the appropriate areas. The papers I used are from Pink Petticoat, the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added some Card Candy from Craftwork Cards and a few gems to finish it off. I hope you like it.
