Butterflies and Bows

Hello everyone,
I've given my Tilda with Hawaiian Flower another outing for this card and I've also used Magnolia Doohickey dies for the butterflies and bow. I decided to finally treat myself to some Maja Design papers and I have to admit that when they arrived I just sat looking through them for ages because they're so beautiful! I was very tentative about using them and had to remind myself of one of my crafty new year's resolutions which was to use my new stash instead of saving things that are too nice! Anyway, I've also used flowers from WOC and of course some things from the Ribbon Girl: cheesecloth, pin, pink twine, button (painted white), and lace.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl - Magnolia Only: buttons and bows
Bunny Zoe's - Distress
In the Pink - Fluttering By
Midweek Magnolias - Texture

Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!

  3. Hello Rebecca. Your card is stunning, I love all the pink & the embellishments you have used look lovely. That Tilda stamp is also one of my favourites & she looks so pretty coloured in pink. I have recently purchased some Maja papers & had a hard time convincing myself to cut into them as they look so pretty but have used the Sofiero for my next card. Hope you have a good weekend.
    Good luck in the challenges.
    Hugs Karen x
