Just Magnolia special monthly challenge - a card for someone special

Our special monthly challenge on Just Magnolia is a nice easy one so we want to see loads of entries!!  All you need to do is make a special card for someone special.  Easy hey!!  And the prize is pretty special too!! 


Heidi from Simon Says Stamp has put a prize together for this Christmas monthly challenge instead of the usual voucher - isn't it fab!! I would love it just for the Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamps lol.  And check out the yummy Basic Grey and Martha Stewart stash too!

So my card is for someone very special, who has been there for me this year, stood by me and supported me in so much.  You will know who you are when this card arrives sweetie.  Thank you SO much xxx

The beautiful flowers are, as ever, from Wild Orchid Crafts - I just love their roses. I have blinged them up with Glimmer Mist and Cosmic Shimmer.

The sentiment inside is from Crafty Sentiments, and the one on the front is one of the new Rachelle Anne Miller sentiment stamps from Stampavie.  Isn't this font just so gorgeous!!  Love all the swirls, and the sentiments are lovely too.  I have used some K & Co Christmas paper from a pad I got from The Hobby House last year - love the pinks and aqua's in this pad.  I wanted a sort of rustic look but it didn't really turn out that way - I so can't do rustic (not with all those roses and punched borders lol).  I cut the heart out freehand, does that count as rustic?  I've used a doily behind the image and punched the border with my new Martha Stewart punch that I got from The Hobby House.  They are sold out just now but keep yer eyes peeled as Jill is expecting more in stock soon.  The pearl pins are new in at The Hobby House as well, I coloured them with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by,
