Simply Magnolia (DT) - Anything Goes

Hello friends

Here's wishing you all a blessed Sunday.  A very warm welcome to my blog, thanks so much for popping by.  Today I'll be showcasing a card I made for the Simply Magnolia challenge which we have this fortnight... It's ANYTHING GOES, so let your imagination run wild!  Congratulations to our winners for the last challenge.  As a DT we are constantly amazed at the awesome talent out there.  It is such a pleasure visiting you all and soooo difficult choosing a winner, as each and every entry is so beautiful!

Here's my little creation for your inspiration.  I am showcasing Rose Scent Tilda for the first time.  When I saw her, I just had to have her... it's the hair !!!  That's the type of hair I would loved to have had instead of my curly top...LOL

To create a little scene, as we could not have Miss Tilda sitting in mid-air now could we, I combined her with a Great Impressions stamp (Code G520).  This one comes in real handy with these Tilda's.  I just added a few little butterflies for decoration and still keeping this very simple, added 3 little pearls.  The sentiment is also one from Great Impressions (Code B1042).



The patterned paper for this card is from the Wilson & Maclagan range of papers which I absolutely love.  Bought from my local store, Merrypak.  The code for this pack is CB1040.  20, 12x12" sheets, 10 designs.  Just love it!  As you can see, I have decorated the inside too, seeing that it's been made for a special person.


As Miss Tilda is sitting outside, we had to add a bit of clouds just to complete the picture.  This is soooo easy to do.  Design your own cloud, cut it out and then brush around the edges with some chalk!

It really feels as if Mr Mojo has returned home from his jaunts around the globe.  He's been missing for a while and I've been feeling rather desperate.  So pleased you booted him up his bum Sandra and sent him home...LOL !!!  I was very tempted to wring his neck, but was so pleased when he arrived !

Before I go, we need to acknowledge our sponsor for this challenge.  It's Scrapbooking Allsorts, our wonderful owner of the Simply Magnolia challenge blog.  Tracy has some awesome products in her store, so do pay her a visit down under!


A long post I know, thanks for sticking by until the end.  Appreciate the visit and would love for you to leave a comment.
