My First Challenge Card

Ive decided at last to try to make a card for a Challenge and Ive picked the Magnolia one, so I hope you like the result.

Ive chosen a Tilda stamp and stamped it onto white card and used my Karisma Pencils to colour her, after which I have cut her out completely.

The base card is an 8"x 8" size made from a piece of A3 white card, onto this I have layered Pink Pearlescent card and have used some of Michelle Marsdens papers/card. The second layer is another of her patterns with a pink ribbon wound around it, for the third layer I have used my circle Nestabilitie dies, and the last layer Ive used the same pattern paper but this time I have stamped some flourishes on it.

I stamped the greeting from one of sets and stuck this onto another piece of pink pearlescent card and with foam attached it to the bottom of my card. Ive then stuck Tilda to the card with Pinflair glue to give her a bit of height.

To finish of the card I have made two large Daisy flowers with my floral punch craft tools and stuck three jewels down the bottom left hand side.

Thanks girls, Im not sure if I will be entering every week but I will see how it goes, it took us quite awhile to photo it as it kept flaring due to the glossy finish to the papers. Anyway thank you for the lovely comments. Love and hugs Shirleyxxx
