Magnolia meets Colour Create :-) + Anne's blog candy !! :-)

I made this card with Happy Mail in mind. Both the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Daring Cardmakers Challenges have this theme this week so we're hoping that lots of children will benefit from this combined effort. As if that wasn't enough of an incentive Ann has a special blog candy which she is also linking to making a card for poorly child ! You only have until tomorrow to enter though so you don't have much time left !!! :-)








I made this card following Bev's fab sketch on the Just Magnolia Challenge


I also tried to use the correct colours on the Colour Create Challenge They are asking us to use pistachio green, aqua and powder pink,,,, gorgegus colours eh !! :-)

The patterned paper is from a Bearly Mine CD, I also used blue It's so Distressing download paper from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts and some whitewash coredinations,

The flowers were cut out on my cricut and the scalloped edge was made using a SU punch.The charm and the rosebud were in Jo's blog candy which I won on the Sketch Saturday Birthday challenge :-)

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Ah this is so sweet Lorraine, I haven;t got round to doing Simon Says this week. every time I have gone on Post Pals I keep crying, all the poor wee mites. What a girly girl I am! Think it is cause I feel so lucky cause when we had Tom he had a hole in his heart and it just floored me. He still has it but is ok. (the purrs wqiththe vibration) Bless. The cord was round his neck 4 times and there was a true knot too. I had never seen one till then!! Scary stuff! Hazelxo
