Magnolia/Stampavie challenge

The challenge was to follow a sketch, which i have done, the sentiment was to be added at the bottom of the swirl, but i haven't decided what sentiment touse as yet so have left it off, hopefully that is the only thing missing! Love magnolia - so i am so glad i found this challenge - another first time challenge x

Papertake Weekly Challenge - dawny's sketch#12

great sketch, so decided i try this one for the first time too- getting into these challenges, should have enough cards never to miss a Birthday or occasion ever again if i keep the challenges up!

I used a Penny Black stamp from my collection, coloured with watercolours and decoupaged it, used background paper from dovecrafts's mens theme pack, sentiment( which i thought went well with my theme) from the new Claire Curd signature range, matted and layered, buttons and gems added for detail.

Card Kit Swop Card

over on docrafts Tanmo runs a card kit swop - you make a card,with anything of your choice, then send a partner the exact same items you have used, this was my card and the bits i sent to Carol (cross stich Queen), a fab way to see what someone else would do with the same bits. I coloured my image with promarkers and decoupaged it and made myself a flower from the ribbon
