Sweet as candy.....


The sun has got his hat on here again! I hope you too are enjoying some lovely Spring weather. It is so much easier to get up to.

Today I would like to share with you a card I made using one of the new Magnolia Mini 6x6 papers. They are just so perfect for card making and I have really loved using it. 

I have used one of the new designs from the latest Butterfly Dreams Collection. Pink Butterfly. Such a pretty colour and love those butterflies. My sweet image is also from this collection Tilda with Straw Hat.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. Stamped with Versamark black onyx. I have used some Quickutz corners to frame her with. 

The Magnolia butterfly and tag have been clear embossed before cutting out. 

The border and detail behind the flowers are Magnolia Doohickey dies. 

The sparkle I have added is star dust stickles and sakura clear.

I have distressed all the edges of my card with walnut stain.

The detail on the tag are rub ons by Doodlebug.

Before I go I just wanted to say a big thank you to Wenche for inviting me to take part in an interview for a fabulous online scrapping community in Norway called Please do go and visit them their articles are so full of amazing ideas and stunning work!

It was such an honour to be asked to join you Wenche. Click here if you would like to see my interview.

Well, I will wish you goodbye and hope you have a fabulous week ahead. Thank you so much for visiting with me.
