A Card for Two Challenges

I have created this card for two Challenges, Just Magnolia's - So Charming, and Stampin for the Weekend - Kimmi's Sketch, I sincerely hope that it will be ok to do this.

I have used my Summer Stamp Club set of Magnolia stamps, the Tilda with a watering can, and the flower border. I stamped the Tilda image onto white card then masked her off while stamping the flower border, this was done twice to give it a longer border. I then coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with a circular tool, and distressed the edge with some distressed ink. I also cut a larger circle to use as a mount, which were stuck together with foam tape. I also used one of the sentiment stamps for the greeting, then cut it out with my square Nestabilitie die, and a mount out of the scalloped one, I stuck them together in a rotated way with some more foam tape.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and onto this I have layered up with a piece of pink pearlescent card, and used another of the Nitwit paper downloads, on top of this base layer I have stuck a triangle mount with another of the designs, and a oblong mount with yet another pattern this one has hearts over it.

Ive stuck the mounted image in the centre, and the sentiment to the right hand side at the bottom. To finish of the challenge I have stuck three flowers at the top with a charm hanging from the bottom one, and some punched out leaves. It also called for yet another flower to be put at the bottom left hand side, and this also was stuck with some punched out leaves under it.

The final thing I have done is to punch out some flourishes with yet another of the patterns, and stuck them down from the top on the left hand side, with some pink pearl gems stuck in the swirls.

I love that cute charm and the pearls on the other side add gorgeous texture. I love these new stamps from magnolia I got them the other day and had to stamp them out right away :)
