A Spoon Full of Sugar #104, Creative Card Crew #50 & Papertake Weekly


Hi girls, it's fantastic to have you calling in on me today. I am beginning to feel a bit more like crafting and blogging and the weekend was quite productive for me so I have another card to show you. You have all been so supportive these last few weeks and I feel it's time I started pulling my weight again in Blogland (at least that's my intention - if I don't do too much).
I am entering this card into three challenges. A Spoon Full of Sugar #104 - "Cute and Girly", Creative Card Crew #50 where they provided a fantastic sketch and Papertake Weekly where the theme is "Say it with Flowers".
I have inked up "Maid Marion Lady Tilda" from my new Magnolia Fairytale Collection and coloured her using my Polychromos pensils. The paper is from Kate Knight's Paper Stack. The butterfly is cut with an Martha Stewart punch. The rose and ribbon are from my stash. I used stickles on the rose and gems on the butterfly. The fronds are cut using an L-Em punch.
I hope you like this card and it would be great if you could let me know what you think. I value your opinions and helpful hints.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to browse.
Hugs,

  2. Hi Fiona,
    So glad to hear your feeling better and like crafting, just don't over do it,
    This is gorgous,
    Why not enter it into Kaboodle Doodles as well, as the challenge is monochrome, and this fits.
