Happy Primrose Day....

Hello,

Wow we are having the most beautiful weather. The birds are singing there little heads off! I hope you all had great weekends. I had a wonderful time with family and friends and feel very blessed.

My card today is featuring one of the new Fairytale Collection for Magnolia. This is Princess Tilda.


Isn't she so adorable. I have coloured her with ranger distress ink pads. She is stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm hot pressed watercolour paper. I have added Stardust Stickle glue to her. I have also used Silver Ice Stickles and liquid pearls all around her. The bundle of hearts and small presents were mini stamps I bought at the NEC on the Magnolia stand. The flowers are EK Success and these and the butterflies have been distressed with walnut stain. The small roses are Magnolia flowers. The background has been distressed with tattered rose.


Well, thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a wonderful day and week!

love
