Hey hey! I'm melting here. I know I've been wanting sun and warm days, but this is a little bit too much. We have 35 degrees Celsius here. Hut, hot, hot! I wouldn't mind being somewhere on the beach right now ... One can dream, right? ;)
Today a new challenge started at Crafty ribbons challenge blog and our theme is "flower galore". In case you didn't know, we are now a weekly challenge and we also limited the number of entries you can enter each challenge. You have all the info about the challenge rules at the challenge blog so I won't go into details here. I'll just show you the card I made.
I decided to use one of the older Magnolia stamps on my card. This sweet Tilda was my very first magnolia stamp and I still love it. :) I colored the image with Promarkers. On the white parts of the dress and on the bow I added some glitter glue. The papers I used are just some leftover scraps of flowery papers that I had in my drawer; they are from various companies. I used 2 different ribbons on my card - light blue satin ribbon and tuftan saddle stitch ribbon. Both of the ribbons are from Crafty ribbons. The butterflies are MS punch and Cheery Lynn die, the corner is SB die and the flowers were made with my craft punch. I also used my border punch. In the middle of each flower I added a crystal from my stash.The white piece of cardstock behind Tilda was embossed with Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder and then distressed with TH antique linen distress ink.
I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
