Just Magnolia DT - Window / Door on your card

Good Morning Folks!! Woohooo, it's Friday and that means time for a new challenge over at Just Magnolia. This week the lovely Iulia has chosen our theme and she wants to see a window / door
on your card.
I chose to use these gorgeous "cuddly siblings" and "welcome to a lovely home" stamps from the new Sweet Crazy Love Collection which I've been dying to ink up since they were released! I've followed the fab sketch over at TOMIC with the added option of using fabric so I'll be entering my card into their challenge and also went for the black & white option over at Magnolia Down Under. The dps I have used are also from the new Magnolia collection, matted onto coredinations cardstock. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, the ribbon and pearls from my stash and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.As always my images have been coloured in with Copics using the "C" greys. Must say I'm quite in love with this card and thoroughly enjoyed every minute creating it. Although it's quite a girly card with all the pink and flowers I think I'd like to give it to my hubby cause he's just the best and the sentiment says just that! I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Bunny Zoes - Picture Inspiration
Craft us Crazy - Valentine / Love
Deep Ocean - Sparkle and/or glitter
Magnolia Down Under - Black & White image
Magnolia-licious Highlights - Create a valentine inspired project
My Mum's Craft Shop - Favourite colour combo
PanPastel - Anything goes
Paperplay - Ribbons every which way (not sure if just one ribbon counts?)
TOMIC - Sketch plus use fabric
Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by today. Here's hoping you'll have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to hop on over to the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog for some gorgeous inspiration and join in the fun with us. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxxx
