Simon Says 24 hour Card For Paige / Girly Challenge :-)

YAY ! WORLD CARDMAKING DAY !! :-) We are having a very special 24 hour Card For Paige Challenge
Paige is a 13 year old girl who was involved in a nasty accident recently. Erin from Scrap, Stamp and Be Merry has launched an appeal for cards to be sent to her and we are trying to help her get as many cards as possible ;-) Erin has kindly agreed to join us in the Designer Spotlight too !! :-) Thanks Erin x x
Pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to read what Erin has to say and to see her card as well as the DT cards for your inspiration ;-)

I made this card following Tanja's fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-) I also made it to qualify for the Just Magnolia Challenge who are asking for handmade flowers. I saw Michelle's fabulous tutorial a few days ago and my first attempt at making these flowers went in the bin ! But as they say, you learn from your mistakes and I am really happy with how this one turned out :-) I am also entering this in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge who are asking for 'Buttons' :-)

I distressed the edges on all the card layers and the flowers with tattered rose and dusty concorde distress inks. I have just bought this Tilda with flowers ,, isn't she pretty ;-) I coloured her with copics and 3D'd her and the basket of flowers to give lots of dimension. I will need to make a box for this !! :-)
The ribbon and buttons are from my stash, the flower was cut out on my cricut and made using Michelle's tutorial as a guide :-) Thanks Michelle :-)I used stickles glitter glue and copic glitter pens for added sparkle, the flower was sprayed with water and sprinkled with perfect pearls to give a lovely glimmer too :-)

This card will be posted to a child on the Post Pals website as I have sent a card to Paige already :-) See the link on my sidebar.

Heidi from Simon Says Stamp is giving the lucky winner of the prize draw a fabulous package of cardmaking goodies :-) so hurry on over to the Challenge blog for more details :-)

Don't forget to visit Erin's blog and the DT blogs to leave a comment :-)

Also I have blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a look :-)
