Good morning to all my wonderful followers and visitors. I bet your surprised to see a post from me on a Monday no? Obviously this post is scheduled as I shall be beavering away at work when this goes live.
What's the reason for posting on a Monday I hear you cry, well it's simple, I was recently asked by the fabulous Rina, to guest and make a card Marvelous Magnolia for their Big Birthday Bash, of course I said yes! If you're not familiar with Marvelous Magnolia, they're an awesome Magnolia only challenge blog that runs new challenges weekly with fab prizes. Currently for their birthday bash they're having a special celebration, not only are they holding their usual challenge (running for 2 weeks this time), but also all the DT ladies are offering their own creations (and really they are amazing) as special prizes, not content with that they've been having a guest designer every day for 10 days and if you leave a comment on the GDT post you have a chance of winning a prize from that sponsor!
This is the card I made.
I decided to make an oval easel card, using some large Spellbinders dies. Papers are by Bildmalarna. All are inked with DI in Pumice Stone and stitched with white Top Stitch thread. The hot air ballon is made with a La La Land Crafts die, I've added a little frantage in Shabby Pink.
This little cutie is Celebration Tilda, isn't she gorgeous? I've coloured her with my Copics and added a little Glamour dust for sparkle. She's sitting on a die-cut made with La La Land Craft's String of Hearts Die.
The tag is Magnolia DooHickey So Wrapped Lovely. I've added pink seam binding and rolled ribbon roses from The Ribbon Girl. You can just see the Heart Doily Border also from LLLC peeking out behind the tag and flowers.
The rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The inside is decorated with matching papers. The stamps and die used to make the tickets are from Whimsy and the little heart scrabble tiles are also from a Whimsy stamp set. The whole card has been finished off with some hand coloured pearls and some Prima pearl flourishes.
I do hope you like my card for the Big Birthday Bash at Marvelous Magnolia, don't forget to pop across and leave a comment on the post there, you have a chance if winning a prize from
