Charisma Cardz Challenge 1st GD card :-)

I was soo excited to be asked to be the Guest Designer on the Charisma Cardz Challenge for 2 weeks :-) The design team are all so talented and have made some fabulous cards for you to see following Joanne's fabby sketch :-)

I used my new summer Magnolia stamps, Tilda is called 'Loves Me'the flowers are 'beach flowers and the sentiment is Loves Me text :-)they will be available soon in the Simon says Stamp Store and are available to pre order :-) The butterflies are also magnolia from the sending butterflies collection :-)

I stamped the flowers on the oval nestie shape. Stamped Tilda 3 times, coloured her with copics, 3D'd her and sat her on the oval :-) I also stamped some extra petals using a magenta stamp :-)

The papers are Doodlebugi also used some whitewash coredinations for the scalloped nestie and the trim across the bottom. I also used a SU scallop punch. The flower and swirl were cut out on my cricut and the lovely charm is from the Hobby House.

Please go and see the fabulous cards that the DT have made and join in the challenge :-) I will try to come and visit you all but i will be on holiday so limited access to the internet. if I don't visit now I will pop by on my return :-)

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

Well, I made sure to play with CC this challenge, although my entry was late... Oops. I will blame it on a time descrepancy, yeah, that's what happened.

LOVE your card, that is such a darling image, and I love how you've coloured her, and the pretty pinks, awwww, adorable!!
