Sneaky Tilda at Marvelous Magnolia

A big hello to my lovely followers old and new :) Talking of new...have you seen that I have almost 100 followers now? I'm soooo excited!  I think I will probably say thank you with a little Candy when that happens.   Also I will have some big news for you next weekend but I can't say anything for now so you'll have to wait till the 18th/19th.  Also I've been asked by several people to do a tutorial for the book card I posted this week.  As I work full time at a teaching hospital during the week and have a 90 minute journey both to and from work, I find it hard to fit in the time to craft even some weeks, so I haven't had time to do any tutorials this far, but I have a week off work on the 10th February, so i do plan on making one then.  It will be nothing fancy, just a step by step with photos, I'm not quite brave enough for video yet! lol

Anyhoo....enough waffling. The reason I'm here today is to share my card for Marvelous Magnolia's new challenge.  It's a very easy one, lovely lace, and from this challenge onwards we're changing to a 2 week challenge, so you will have 2 weeks to enter, so there, you have no excuse now! Hehe.

This is what I made, as usual I ended up covering a lot of my lace with other embellishments, but you can see there is a lovely purple lace and a crocheted lace with a velvet trim. So if you're like me, do make sure that we can see your lace so you qualify for the theme : )

I used the beautiful Maja Design papers, Fika collection.

This is Sneaky Tilda, one of my stamps I got for Christmas. I loved the papers so much I decided to paper piece her outfit to match! A little glamour dust for sparkle and a touch of Aged Wine frantage to frame her.

See I did still leave some lace exposed! lol 

I decorated the inside to match too.  Most of my embellishments on this card are from one of our sponsors this week.
They're offering a £10 voucher to our winner.

Welcome to the Ribbon Girl - to help your craft budget go further we always sell our buttons, flowers, diamantes, pearls, flatbacks, crystal stems, charms and embellishments in small quantities so you can mix and match with more choice! Seam binding is sold in 5 metre bundles. Divine Bakers Twine and button twine in 10 metre bundles. All of our beautiful ribbon and lace is sold by the metre and when you need more than one, we supply in a continuous length whenever possible.

We also have another 2 sponsors!


So that's 3 fab prizes for you to win!

Do pop over to our blog and give the other girls in the DT some love, they've made some wonderful creations to inspire you, and why not join in with us, it's an easy challenge and you have 2 weeks to get your entries in!
