I hope you are well and your weekend was a good one.
Today I would like to share a card with you using Magnolia's 'Tilda of Sweden' from the Summer Memories Collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads onto 300gsm water colour paper.
The edges of my card and papers have been distressed with Tim's distressing tool and then walnut stain added.
The Heart Tags, Flags, Tag, Branch Swirl and Flowers are all Magnolia Doohickey dies.
The lush papers are by  the fabulously talented Linda Monstre. You can buy them from 
The beautiful crocheted flowers are from the mega talented Tab at Tabby Craft Designs.
The ribbons are from The Ribbon Girls.
Flowers WOC.

Here is the inside. I added some distress paint around the edge and then rubbed some Inka Gold onto this.

The punched flowers are EK Success.

Thank you so much for your visit with me!

I wish you a fabulous rest of the week!

The Ribbon Girls Challenge - Ribbon and/or Lace!......


Today is the start of a new Challenge for The Ribbon Girls!
The challenge is to include Ribbon and/or Lace on your creations.

I have made this card for someone very special.

I have used an older Magnolia Tilda and have coloured her with distress ink pads.
The oval die cuts are nesties and I have distressed these and everything else with walnut stain.
The seam binding, tiny pom poms, lace, key charm, pearl pins and pearl swirls are all from The Ribbon Girls.

The flowers are from WOC.
The heart tag, swirl and border dies are Magnolia's Doohickeys.
The sentiments are Magnolia.

I have used a Magnolia sentiment for the tag which I have slid inside the paper layers. The Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girls has been spritzed with water and crumpled up and left to dry.

The paper I have used is Magnolia Designer Paper.

I have die cut some tags from Magnolia which fit into this pocket.
The Tulle is The Ribbon Girls.

More die cuts. Liquid Pearls and Stickle Glue Star Dust.

Thank you so very much for your visit with me :)

Please do go and check out the rest of the Ribbon Girls Team creations. They are totally amazing!

I hope you have a brilliant Sunday and if you are celebrating the Queen's Jubilee I wish you every success and a most wonderful time!
