Just Magnolia & ABC Challenge

I am not sure whether this card is Zingy enough for the Magnolia challenge or 'flying' enough for the ABC Challenge - lets hope so. In real life the orange is really vibrant. I made a round card for a change, then hand cut two hearts and stiched them together and gave them a spritz of glimmer mist ( Pearl). The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch that have either been coated in glossy accents crackle glaze or glitter. The magnolia image has been coloured with distress inks and again the hearts covered on glossy accents.

Image- Magnolia
Paper- Bo Bunny
Cardstock - su in regal rose and pumkin pie

Friday sketchers 72

I love these sketches especially this one. I have used my faves at the moment, Daisy D papers, the fantastic Digital Pencil Too digital image, hand cut hearts and machine stitching(which is a must for me). Again I added flock to the nappy for texture and a baby pin for good measure and to hold it all up !

40 something

A friend asked me to make a 40th Birthday card. She asked for elegant :o I hope she will be happy with this card.I embossed a stamping up Manhatten flower image onto whitewashed cardstock then sanded the image to let the background colour come through. Although you cant see much of the patterned paper it is a beautiful blue rose on a cream background.

Materials used:
Paper- Blueberry hill by papermania
Cardstock- SU Bashful blue, Bazzill cream and coredinations whitewash collection
image - SU Manhatten flower (embossed)
