Just Magnolia + Sir Stampalot Challenges

Evening All!! Hope you're all well. I know I've been a terrible buddy lately but things have just gone a bit hectic and hopefully I'm now back on track so I'll be able to visit you all soon. I have made this card to enter into the Just Magnolia Challenge which was to follow a lovely sketch by the very talented Mina. I will also be entering it into the Sir Stampalot Challenge which is "Punch it Out" and that is exactly what I did with the butterflies. Apologies in advance for the long post but I find it rather difficult to photograph an easel card so I have uploaded quite a few pics hehe. This is a close up of the gorgeous Tilda from the fairytale collection and I'm quite embarassed to say it's the first time I've inked her up. Isn't she just the sweetest?! I have coloured her in with Promarkers, cut out with nesties and inked around the edges. The pearls are from the hobbyhouse. The ribbon / lace thingy is from Dunelm but have had in my stash for ages lol!

This is the bottom of the easel card and I have used a sentiment stamp from Personal Impressions and cut out with nesties again. The butterflies are punched out with and MS punch and I have added pearls also from the hobbyhouse.

Sideways view - I was hoping you would be able to see the butterflies that I cut out from the dp and layered on top with the wings up. The dps are all DCWV "Garden Party" Stack and are so beautifully glittered.

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you wish to leave. They are all truly appreciated. Have a fab evening. Lotsa luv xxxx
