Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge

TGIF!!  What a week I have had, I am sick of the sight of hospitals and doctors, still got more to go next week.  Fed up ain’t the word lol.  Anyway on to my card for Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, which is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week.  The challenge is Anything Goes with a Shabby Chic option.


I broke down and bought a couple of stamps from the latest collection, I have not bought a maggie in ages, but I could not resist this little cutie with her strawberries.


I ordered some papers at the same time – all from Crafts U Love, thanks for the superfast delivery Paula :).  I found the Fiskars punch I got at the NEC and forgot about and had to use it, I was going to squeeze this on the card for sure lol.  Just made it. 

Copics used are
Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
Dress, boots, hat and strawberries: R39, R37, R35, R32
Basket: E37, E35, E31, E30
Greens: YG67, YG63, YG61, G20


That gorge organza rose is the new trim that Wild Orchid Crafts is stocking, I just chopped one of the flowers off, applied glossy accents to the edges and dunked it in silver German Glass Glitter – soooo pretty!  The other flowers are 25mm rose, 15mm roses.  The satin ribbon, lace and metal embellishment  is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The little postage stamp is  from Whimsy Stamps, that also got a dunking in the Glass Glitter lol.  I added the shabby chic element by distressing the papers, then stitching them then slathering them in distress paint.  I also added the muslin (which got doused in paint too).


And that’s it from me today.  I’ve popped this card in my eBay shop


Have a fabulous weekend!  I am teaching a Copics/Prismacolor class at Papercuts tomorrow, really looking forward to it too :)
