This afternoon I have my
Magnolia Down Under
card to share with you.
This weeks challenge is..

I really love the way this card did turn out. It is a tad shabby and chic or vintage. I have made it for my mom for Mother's Day.

I have used #371 Tilda with flower pot. available from Magnolia-licious.

She has bee colored with my copic markers:
pink:RV00 R81 R83 R85 R35
brown: E23 E30 E31 E50 E35 E37 E59 E79 E99 E09 E19 E17
blue: B23 B34 B37
Papers: Deja Views, Paper Heart, news print unknown, Bazzill Karft cardstock, The Paper Store cardstock
embellies: Tim Holtz snaps buckle charm, Kraft photo corners, pink velvet trim, lace, string pearls, paper flowers, cheese cloth, brads, heart from stash box
I have used my Spellbinders to cute around the image and I have it popped. I have sewn my card and used my sanding files to distress all of the cardstock edges. All edges of my papers have been inked with Tim Holtz distressed inks. I have used my stickles on the flowers in the pot and the ahir bows. All of my flowers have been sprayed with a Bazzil Piglet glimmer mist.


Paper Sundaes: Favortie Hair color combos

Just Magnolia: anything goes with stitching

Crafts and Me: Vintage/distressed

Fairy Tale: Mother's day

Card Cupid: Mother's Day

Craft Us Crazy: Mother's Day FLowers

Stamping Vaction: Pick 3 (floral paper, something square, any brad)
