Hi Girls, talk about starting one card then ending up creating one for another challenge, thats what happened to me today, the problem was I printed these lovely papers and decided it was just right for this image and of course like most ladies I got side tracked into this Challenge for Just Magnolia and this week its a lovely easy sketch by Bev.
The image was already for me to use as Id stamped it and coloured it awhile back and had never used it, and as Ive still got two challenge cards to create I cheated and decided to use this one for my Just Magnolia challenge this week. Ive actually masked Tilda to sit her on the honey pot, then cut around the bottom of it to use the mega ovals to cut her out. I did colour her with my copic pens and the sentiment is a lovely one from Stampin Up, a set I bought from the lovely Angela whos just become agent for them, and Ive been itching to try out these lovely flight stamps, though its actually a butterfly in the box Ive used it as a flight for the bumblebee.
The papers are some really lovely ones from the Karen Miller Designs, she has a 40% discount over the bank holiday so its worth a trip to discover some of her beautiful designs. Ive used this pretty orange and yellow paper for my first layer and Ive mounted it onto orange card. The second layer is a orange check design and Ive used the Flower border and corner punches from Martha Stewart to create this square.
Over the top Ive stuck some lace and bright orange and white ribbon across the centre and attached it to the back of the first layer, this was then stuck to my base 7"x 7" white card, the image was then stuck in the centre and I created a flower from some of the left over papers. This was then stuck to my card on top of some punched out Maidenhair fern leaves. To finish of Ive used some pretty gems in swirls at the top and bottom of my card. I do hope you like the end result.
Im also going to enter this card for LOV Challenge - Here comes Summer.
