Just Magnolia week 6 - Let's get in shape

Wow, another amazing response from you all this week, thanks so much for your support!!

Our challenge for this week is to make a shaped card, no square cards sadly lol). What a job I had with this card - I'm having a mojoless week this week and really struggled with this one! The paper was on, it came off, new papers chosen, those were cut out and stuck on, off they came, the next lot of papers are chosen, cut out and stuck on and off those came too! This is the 4th attempt and I don;t want to play no more!! This is as good as it gets for this week. Not even the camera would behave itself and I had to resort to using the light box (which I prefer to avoid at all costs) and go with the black background as the blossom shapes just weren't showing up at all. ARGH - this is one for the bin for sure. I'm surprised it didn't collapse when I stood it up with all the rips and tears behind the DP lol.

A very rushed inside, I had planned on stamping the image again for the inside but ran out of time - thank goodness for my trusty MS butterfly punch - thanks Jill xx

Recipe:

Tilda with Lilacs image coloured with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O's
Papers: Basic Grey Eva
Card template from The Cutting Cafe - our sponsor for this week
Tools: Nestibilities, scalloped scissors, Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch , Woodware 6 petal blossom punch and Martha Stewart branch punch
Embellishments: Prima flowers, Cherry blossoms, ribbon from stash

I’ve received some awards this week but have not had a chance to post them or even acknowledge them (sorry xx). I have so much work on at the mo, both DT and at work that blogging has had to take a back seat I’m afraid. I will try and get round to visiting you all by the weekend.


First one is from Sheena, thanks hun xxsheena


Thanks for looking,

  4. Hey Bev, thanks for popping by my blog! I know exactly how it goes with running out of time for blogging, and running out of mojo!

    The card is lovely! Great layout, and the flowers look gorgeous.

    I will have to pull my finger out after the weekend and join in with the Just Magnolia challenge, I keep meaning to and then the week disappears!

  6. Er what are you talking about this card is great! Tell me, you punched every one of the blossoms around the edge of your card (I'm going to case that one!!!) did a great job of colouring your stamped image and decorated the inside of the card er that would do for me thanks!!
    Have a relaxing week-end. Sue x
