Today is the start of Marvelous Magnolia's brand new
Anything Goes Challenge!!!
How is easy is that!

Our Fab sponsor this month, is Magnolia and you will win a surprise package directly from them!

Here is my card...
 Both images are from my new Magnolia Club.
 Princess Tilda is flying away from her castle on her magic carpet, so super cute.
I have coloured the images with Copics.
There is even a magic lamp that I have stamped onto the tag, to complete the Aladin theme!!! The sentiment is from the club too.


For a change I made some of my own rolled roses from DP's and distressed my leaves in several colours, added a touch or two of seam binding and a few frosted berries to compliment the colour scheme.


The DP's are from my own stash of goodies!

Have a great day and please don't forget to pop over and show the team some love!

Sylvia Zet SCAD Card

 
Good Afternoon Everyone
 
Well, we have had a heat wave here in the UK, making it very difficult to sleep at night and are expecting thunderstorms today!!!
Fickle weather!
I have just returned home after collecting my daughter to bring home as she has now finished university, I am still a super proud mum, as I have been saying over the last three years he he!!!
Although I haven't got a clue how she is going to fit everything that she has collected over the last three years back into her bedroom.
Luckily we converted the loft (attic) recently so she can store some things up there until she decides what she wants to keep!
 
Anyway enough waffle, here is my card which I created with one of my SCAD stamps.
 
 
I have used one of my old SCAD stamps from Sylvia Zet, I am especially pleased with her hair, it took me a couple of hours to create all the strands and shading, but I enjoy the colouring process.
 
Both my designer papers are lemon craft and a gorgeous little tag from behind the image. I have distressed the image with DI's and added some shabby frantage and several cute butterflies.
 


I made the 3 Foamiran flowers and painted/decorated butterfly charm, I also made a little hand made decorative pin!
 

 
Have a lovely weekend,
