A heart full of hugs......

Hello,

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend!

If like me you are experiencing snow then do keep warm and take care on that ice. On the steroids again at the moment :( Keeping fingers crossed that those pesky baby germs I keep catching from my precious Granddaughter will stop keep coming my way soon lol!

Anyway on the mend now so I have managed to make a card using the sweet Tilda with a Cosy Heart from Magnolia's 'Sweet Crazy Love Collection'.


I have stamped Tilda with Archival Coffee onto 300gsm hp watercolour paper.
I have used distress ink pads to colour with.
The stickles I have added are Star Dust and Platinum.
The large flower is punched ek success and grunged up.
The button is a Memory Box die cut.
The tag and border are Magnolia's Doohickeys.
The butterfly is Wild Orchid Craft.


I have decorated the inside.


For the inside left I have used Magnolia's Doohickey Heart Tag and covered this with flowers.
The Magnolia sentiment is stamped with StazOn onto some vellum. Ribbon is seam binding grunged.


I have added more of the die cut buttons for the inside right.


I would like to enter my card into these challenges.

Magnolia Down Under - Love is in the Air

Magnolia-licious - Vintage and Shabby Chic

Thank you so very much for your visit!

I will be putting my card onto Ebay later if anyone is interested.

love
