Fairy Dust Tilda at Just Magnolia and a Wee Touch of Sweet Stuff!!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have had a delightful weekend and will have a wonderful week also!! It is dreary and rainy here so I guess that means an inside day to play!!
I wanted to show you my Just Magnolia DT Sample Card for this week and sorry I just couldn't do a posting over the weekend...but today is a new day and things are looking UP UP UP for this week!! This week our challenge is “One for the Girls” – so it's the perfect excuse to get out your Maggies, all your girly papers, ribbons and embellishments and make pretty and girly!! I hope you will join us this week because there is a very nice prize from Crafty Sentiments. Also have a peek at all of the DT Sample Cards...they are absolutely gorgeous and GIRLY!!!!!
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from Papermania's Blueberry Hill paper pack, which I dearly love!! The background panels are all machine stitched. Little Fairy Dust Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a touch of Diamond Stickles and cut out with Nesties. I added Stickles to the edge of the round nestie, and pink pearls to the scalloped nestie. This little cutie is on order at Diana's shop. All layers of the front are propped up for dimension. Pink pearls were added to soften all corners and then I used pink organza ribbon and roses and rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts to make the swag at the top.
For the first panel on the inside of the card I used a simple bow and rosebud treatment and on the second panel I used a die cut for the jotting section, adding a few pink pearl flourishes and another bow with rosebuds. All corners on the inside were also softened with pink pearls.
I hope you like my little creation and will come on over to Just Magnolia and show us your very own GIRLY card!!
