Magnolia Down Under Challenges #31

The Magnolia Challenges are back to weekly - oh what fun.  This weeks challenge is a sketch.  Using the sketch provided, it had to include orange and be a 'girly' card.  Well, the 'girly' part was easy with a cute Magnolia Stamp!  Here's my creation:
This card base in White measures 13cm x 13cm square.  I've layered some Tangerine Tango and pattern paper from the Nook & Pantry range by Basic Grey.
I've cut a circle in Soft Sky using my CM cutter and used a clear stamp for the background.  Then I've added a strip of cream lace - I have to go back to my local fabric store as I'm using this so much lately - it's just gorgeous.
For the main image, I've stamped 'Tilda with bike' onto watercolour cardstock, then used my inks and aqua painter to colour in. I've cut it out and then poped onto the layout. 
I've added a ruffled flower - I'm loving these too - so much fun to make.  A red button has been put in the centre and I've inked the edges in Tangerine Tango ink.
Lastly I've added some pearls and a sentiment from a clear stamp.  Here's a closer look at the ruffled flower:

Such a sweet card Chantelle. I adore those book text flowers you have been making, and this one is especially nice with the sponging :) With the lace panel, the effect is deliciously retro. Little Tilda is right at home there :)

Hi Chantelle

Awesome card as always. You have been doing amazing work lately, and it's lovely to see such a variety of products. I love the card you did for Keesh's sketch challenge as well.

I did receive your lovely email and have been meaning to get back to you for ages...so sorry. I went to reply to you the other day, but realised I accidentally deleted a heap of emails. I just wanted you to know that I really appreciated the email and look forward to keeping in touch this year.

You take care Chantelle, enjoy your week.
