Just Magnolia's First Birthday Blog Hop with a twist meets Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Hiya, bit a late posting tonight....

Having taken a break from doing jobs on my TO DO list tonight, I decided that I would make a card for the Just Magnolia challenge this week, as well as Simon Says. I've really wanted to enter more challenges and thought I'd have loads of time once I'd given up work but how wrong could I have been.... LOL

I followed the sketch provided by Mina and rotated where the ribbon should be and slightly spaced out the embellishments at the bottom a bit. The theme at Simon Says this week is things wtih wings and this Tilda fitted that perfectly (and my butterfly!).

I've been practising how to do bows and am happy with how this one has turned out. My camera is so pants at taking pictures that you can't actually see the gorgeousness of the colour of this ribbon, it's a bit of a soft greeny/blue.

My camera also doesn't pick up the colouring very well, need to find someone who has a decent camera that they don't use...... Anyway my recipe:-
  • DPs - Rose Garden by Papermania (how delish are these......)
  • Image - Fairytale Tilda
  • Medium - Prisma Pencils and sansodor (not that you can see it on the pic.. :( )
  • Flowers - Bought from a trip to Ann-marie's local craft shop
  • Ribbon - From Ann-marie's stash (thanks chick)
Oh and if it didn't move it got stickled....... LOL - again not that you can tell on this pic...

Oh well better trot off to bed before it's time to get up again.
