Tremendous Thursday......


Hello,

Hope your week is going well. My card today is coloured with Ranger distress inks. My background is distressed with faded jeans. I have masked my Magnolia Tilda and have added stickles to some of my image and the Magnolia butterflies.

I have distressed my flowers with frayed burlap and sprayed them with glimmer mist. I have distressed my Magnolia papers with Tim's distressing tool and distressed them with frayed burlap. I have stamped my Magnolia sentiment with versafine sepia. I have highlighted some of the products that you can find at the fabulous Heidi's Simon Says Store.

I have been given this award by the lovely Gisella. Thank you so much sweetie I am thrilled to receive this from you.



Thank you so very much for looking and a huge thank you for all your lovely comments and support it really warms my heart thank you!

love
