My first DT post for Marvelous Magnolia!!! and a new challenge!

Good Morning Everyone

I am so excited to tell you that this is my very first DT post with the talented team at Marvelous Magnolia!!!

When Rina asked to apply to the DT call, well how could I refuse?

The wonderful sponsor this 2 week challenge are Stamp & Create, with a wonderful prize on offer!!! They stock so many beautiful items, including magnolia and Edwin stamps!

The theme for this fortnight long challenge is Vintage, I didn't really want to go with the traditional browns and beige usually associated with vintage, so chose to go with a deep pink and burgundy, with lots of distressing.

Apologies in advance as it is a bit picture heavy!

Front vintage rose papers are from my own goodies, back layer is Maja design sofiero paper. With Maja so wrapped up doohickey, with matching satin ribbon and large butterfly charm.

She is coloured with Copics and distressed with DI and shabby pink frantage.

Large pink crystal embellishment and ideology pin holding sentiment. You can also see the cheese cloth, strung pearls and guipure lace peeking out behind the image

Flowers and Berries & Pink Lace from Ribbon Girl, Live and Love Crafts & WOC!
There is also a shabby bark heart at the back and some little brown stamens peeking out too.

Thank you for popping by today and please dont forget to enter the Challenge
Take Care, Crafty Cuddles
