Just Magnolia Challenge week 8....


Hope everyone is well. I have been having a dreadful few weeks with asthma but now am fully recovered. Today we have a brand new challenge at Just Magnolia. The challenge this week is to make a card using a sketch designed by the fabulously talented Rachel. Thank you so much Rachel I loved using your sketch and will love to use this again.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. For the background I have distressed this with antique linen and broken china. I have added some stickles to the flowers. I have distressed my papers with broken china. I have quickutzed my flowers and have sprayed these with old lace glimmer mist. The punched border is punched using a fiskars punch.

I have been sent two awards from three lovely bloggers. I am so delighted that you have thought of me thank you so very much.

This is from Sam (big hugs)

This is from Karen and Victoria (big hugs)

Well I wish you all a fabulous weekend! Please do go and check out the rest of the DT's creations you will be totally inspired!
