Well, I have a couple of exciting things to share with you all before I chat about my card...
The first is... last Sunday Kellie (the gorgeous founder of Magnolia Down Under Challenges) emailed me to invite me to be a guest DT member for a month! What do you think I said? hehehe, well, it was something along the lines of "OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! ", so there we have it - look out for me in June as I will be joining the very talented team at MDUC. How very exciting.
The second exciting news is - I came in the top 5 at MDUC for their last challenge Pink & Grey! Woo hoo! Thank ladies, I am sooo chuffed!
So of course when the new challenge was posted this morning (challenge # 33 - Buttons, Flowers and Bows), I jumped into action and started sifting through my button tin. And here is my finished card...
It is a step card - so that allows a lot of little nooks and crannys to embellish! It might be a little over done, and my husband likes to remind me occassionally "less is more" - but you know what? For once he is WRONG - MORE is more!
So here is a little close up of the lovely Tilda with her basket. I'm back to my watercolour pencils again... so many bright and beautiful colours to choose from... The tree in the background is also a Magnolia stamp. Sorry about all the shaddows - it is pooring her in Canberra - and has been since Friday. Even with the lights on it is hard to get enough light, oh well!
I am also entering this card into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 70 - Multifolds.
Have a great Valentines Day my crafty blogging friends :)
