Summer Treats...........

Hello,

Hope life is good for you and you are having a great week.


I have made this card using one of the latest Magnolia images. I have stamped her with Versafine Black Onyx onto Waterford 300gsm water paper. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with vintage photo. I have coloured Tilda with Distress Ink Pads. I have used a crafting knife and cut around the leaves, clock and flowers on the Websters paper and slipped the image behind these. I have also cut some of the elements from the paper and added these around Tilda. The leaves are punched and embossed and the butterflies are also punched. The stickles I have added are Star Dust.


I have also received this award from the gorgeous Georgia and Kate. Thank you so very much for passing this onto me you are so sweet. I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits my blog as a big thank you!



Thank you so very much for visiting with me. I hope you all have a great end to the week and a great weekend.

love
