Hi again,
second post today I am entering this card to challenge that I found

This card is one of three cards that I have made for a class at In2crafting using Distress Inks. The circle is done by spritzing inks on a craft sheet then laying card on top and heat drying. After which we add stamped images and cut out with a nestabilities die. We have done the first of three classes and it was a sucess. I hope you all like.xx

Just Magnolia Challenge

Good morning although i'm not so sure as it's quite grey outside!
Anyway today i'm posting a card that I have made over the weekend playing with my lovely Princess Tilda.
The challenge was to follow a sketch using a magnolia stamp. I used a provocraft flowery paper and a plaid paper both distressed with Antique Linen and the band was Marther Stewart Doiley Lace. The flourish at the top and bottom were the end pieces taken from Spellbinders Tags set.I also added a little detail with specks of crystal gems in a flourish design.
