Just Magnolia DT - Anything goes / Totally Papercrafts DT - Let's get fruity

Morning Peeps!! Hope you've all had a good week. Mine was great cause I didn't have the school runs to do hehe and I've been catching up with dt work. Can you believe it's Friday again? My favourite day of the week yipeeee!!! My card is for two challenges again, Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts. As it's the first Friday of the month Just Magnolia's theme is Anything Goes and our host, the lovely Mina, has chosen an optional extra of lace. Over at Totally Papercrafts our theme is Let's get fruity and was chosen by our lovely Sue! The sweet Tilda (pardon the punn) that I've used is from the new Rainbow Collection as are the dps. Their collections just keep getting better don't you think? All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've been wanting to try this circle of flowers around an image for ages but keep forgetting, what am I like hehe?! The ribbon and charm are from my stash and the butterfly/dragonfly is a doohickey die.

I have coloured my image in with Copics as usual. Isn't she just lovely with that huge strawberry in her face lol?! I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
A spoonfull of sugar - Flower Power (hope I've used enough flowers lol)
Cute Card Thursday - Embellish it
Divas by Design - Florals
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Monochromatic Red
Magnolia Down Under - Sketch (rotated)
Sir Stampalot - Photo inspiration (I used the colour for my inspiration)
Thanks for stopping by and here's wishing you a wonderful warm weekend wherever you may be. Please don't forget to hop on over to the Just Magnolia Blog and Totally Papercrafts Blog to join in the fun and also to see the awesome creations from both the talented dts, you'll not wanna miss this one as there are stunning projects this week.

  8. What an adorable card Carol and that circle of flowers works beautifully as the frame.

    The Maganolia DP's really are great,I like the fact the flowers and patterns are tiny, so many are a bit too big for cardmaking.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot Challenge this month, good luck and look forward to seeing more of your lovely work.
