Magnolia Down Under Challenges

The Magnolia Challenge for this week is: Bling it on - anything that sparkles and shines. I'm still using the same stamp as my previous cards, Tilda with Flowers, but I'm sure my new stamps will be coming very soon!

I've started off with a base card in Pink Pirouette, one of the new In-Colours. It's so pretty and soft! Then I've added a piece of Designer paper which I actually received from Bec at Bizzy Bec's some time ago. I cut out some of the flowers and mounted them above the cardstock as well!
'Tilda' has been stamped onto watercolour paper with Stazon black and I've coloured her in with my aqua painter and ink pads, adding bits of glitter as I went along. I love her sparkly shoes!
I've layered onto a piece of Red Riding Hood cardstock, another new In-Colour and then mounted onto the card.
The card has been finished off with some shiny brads, black ribbon and chunky glitter on the flowers.

I also decided not to have a sentiment or word on this card. Sometimes, it's nice to have some blank cards and then you can stamp a little word on later to suit the occasion.





I'm just getting in on time with this challenge as it ends tonight. Life has been really busy lately, but I was happy to find a little time to enjoy doing this challenge. Can't wait to see what tommorow's new challenge will be.
