Loving Friends......

Hello,

Oh my goodness we are having the most beautiful days in my neck of the woods. Positively sunny! I hope you too are seeing your weather turn for the new season :)

Today I have made a card for the latest MDUC challenge Bingo and the line I have chosen is Dies/Flowers/Glitter.


I have used Magnolia's Teddybear Love from the Princes and Princesses collection.
I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper.
I have added clear Sakura star dust pen to her dress and Stickles in Star Dust around my image and on the edge of my paper.
The Magnolia sentiment is stamped onto a nesties die cut and the Heart Swirl branch is a Magnolia die.
The ribbon border I bought from The Hobby House at the NEC.


I have used the gorgeous Maja paper to decorate the inside of my card.


I have cut out a butterfly from a Pion sheet and added feathers from Hobbycraft. The tiny pearls are also from the Hobby House at the NEC.


I used a metal corner from Wild Orchid Crafts and more butterflies from Pion.

I will be adding this card to Ebay.

Thank you so much for your visit and I wish you a wonderful rest of the week!

love
kim xxx


Inks used
skin - tattered rose, antique linen
