Sweet Magnolia Post for LHOSM Challenge... Anything Goes!

Good afternoon everyone

Today is the turn of the Sweet Magnolia Team to show case their creations for you!!!

As you may already be aware, our current theme over at
 Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge is 
Easy hey!

We are thrilled to have a wonderful sponsor for you,
They are offering a £15 voucher to spend in their fabulous store!!!!

You may enter as many creations as you wish!

Please pop on over to the challenge and join in the fun!!!

Here is my card...

I wanted to make an easel card for a change and this is a very fussy card, even for me!!! It did start off a large blossom shape, but I think that shape has been lost behind all my embellies  he he!

I  have used craft and You papers,  made my own 3 layer bunting, and a bit of chipboard, I dyed my cheesecloth with my DI's, blue and Pink to match my colour combo, which I use regularly. 
I also used my stampelglede stamps for the sentiment and post marks on the image!

I deepened the colour of the pink seam binding with dye, for both of my tags, tied with natural hemp twine and added little pocket watches to each one. 

The gorgeous flowers are of course from our sponsors store and the butterflies are made from a memory box butterfly die, I tied the middles with sissal, which adds a lovely delicate trailing effect!

Please pop over and join in the challenge, HERE, you still have 12 days to do so!!

Many Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely Sunday!!!

Hello all you magnolia lovers across the world

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge
over at Marvelous Magnolia!!!

The easy peasy theme is 
Anything Goes
and you have a chance to join the team, with a GDT spot,
as your prize!!!

We cant wait to see your stunning creations.

Here is my card...

Isn't she gorgeous!!!! 
She is coloured with Copics and I've blended warm grey 3 into the skin, hair and dress, to add a slightly more distressed effect and shadow.

My papers are again craft and you and behind the image, I have used some cheese cloth that I have dyed pink! 

The baby pink seam binding was dyed by hand and I have created a double heart bow, tied with natural hemp twine and used a little princess crown charm.

The gorgeous roses are of course WOC and the pearl and lace trims are from my own stash of crafty goodies he he!!!

A closer look at the cutie!!!
Loving this chipboard wording too!

These are the two tags, that you can see peeking out on the right of the card, which are decorated with double seam binding, and parasol charms and natural hemp twine. 

Many Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week.
