It's your day to shine....

Hi Peeps

Sorry for the long gap between posts, i have had rotten flu for over a week now, still have it, so i haven't wanted to do anything!!! Which is impossible with two boys under 4!

Today's card is one i made with a favourite stamp of mine it was the first one of the magnolia range i got as a present for my birthday of my son, i helped him order it for me!!!!

I used the Magnolia stamp and coloured it with promarkers, i sat her on a toadstool i got from another stamp set(think it was Jane Nestorenko), matted it onto some glittered red paper.  I matted some flowered paper onto the same red paper(red glittered paper from papercellar), Die cut a red (painted with red paint) scalloped square( sizzix die).  Die cut some red swirls from a Marianne Design Creatables set. Embossed some clear vellum paper using a sizzix embossing board.  Cut out some flowers from the patterned paper and layered everything up, finished it off with a few clear gems on the flowers, and a Message stamped from a Creative expression stamp set.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

  1. Thank you for playing along at As You Like It. Super colour choice and I love the embossed vellum, it gives real texture and softens the red beautifully to match the flowers. Hope you feel well enough to join in our next challenge!!
