A Card for Many Challenges

Good Morning Everyone, hope that you are all enjoying yet another holiday weekend, the sun is trying very hard to come out and Im hoping to get out for a walk after dinner. Anyway todays card is to cover several Magnolia Challenges, Magnolia Stamp Lovers "Flowers", Totally Tilda's "Paper Piecing", Magnolia Down Unders "Lace and Ribbons", Dutch Magnolia's "Mothers Day" and Just Magnolia's "Buttons, Bows and Bling" and hopefully with what Ive got here will cover everything. Ive used this sweet image of Tilda with a butterfly, and coloured the base of it with my Copic and Tria pens, and then Ive used two papers from the Hideaway Paper Pack from First Edition and they are two papers with the same pattern but with opposite colouring the first a green with white flowers, and then white with green flowers, they were then stamped and cut out the relevant pieces and stuck them to my image, afterwards Ive used the Oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out, I also used some glitter on the butterflies. I used some of the same green pearlescent card to cut a mount of a scalloped die and the sentiment is yet another of the Magnolia stamps thats been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with the first mount of green pearlescent card with one of two of the same paper set, this first one is a all over white background with stripes of different colours and patterns across the paper, on top I have put a single strip mount with a piece of the same green flower paper that I used for her skirt.
On top of this I have wrapped a piece of lace and ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount, then positioned my mounted image in the middle on top of one of the Cherry Lynn Die cut Doilies with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. I have then created some flowers with yet another piece of the same paper pack and a bit of the green for the middle flower, I used the Marianne flower dies for this, and stuck them onto my card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out oak leaves. The two buttons on the right have had threaded through the holes some fine ribbon and tied in bows, and the final bow is a triple seam binding one thats been stuck at the side of my image.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-



Gorgeous Spring colours Shirley. The flowers are fabulous, and I love this Tilda image - your cards are always beautiful. Hope you enjoy your walk - the sun is shining here again, but there's still a cool breeze. Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
