Just Magnolia Wk 43 & Secret Crafters #71

Hi girls. Welcome to my wee blog. I'm glad you have had time to call in. I only hope you find something to please the eye. What a day this has been. It has snowed all day but nothing to compare with what our American cousins are having to suffer. Not great weather for going out on crutches so I just had to stay in and craft. What is it they say about an ill wind?
I made this card to enter two challenges. Just Magnolia's Jayjay gave a fantastic sketch to follow and Secret Crafters had a theme of "Mother's Day". I inked up another of my new Tildas, "Sweet Tilda", and coloured with my Polychromos pencils and Sansidor oil. The paper is SEI's "Juliette - Sweet Perfume". The punched borders were created with a Martha Stewart Heart punch on Salmon pink and grey card. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are handmade. I have also used some stickles for effect.
Any comments you may have time to leave will be much appreciated as I really find them helpful. Thanks for calling in and have agreat crafting day.


  1. Oh WOW, Fiona! This color scheme is really yummy! Such a beautiful card! Love the flowers and ribbon. xxD

  2. Fiona, this is gorgeous. I love the flowers. You'll have to tell me how you hand made them. I would love to try making them. I'll have to stamp up my Tilda like yours, she came out beautiful.
