MDUC - #159 Card & Tag Challenge

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

I am so excited to be here as a  guest designer at 
for  August !! 
 The challenge this week is to make a  card with a tag !!
 I have been playing with Magnolia Tilda with a gift for you and the Magnolia Limited Edition Stamp.

I have coloured her with pencils and used coffee Archival ink to stamp with . I have then cut with a classic spellbinders circle die and I have distressed the edges and added touches of black and blue sugar glitter.

I have used this super template to create these large tags with the smaller Magnolia Vintage Tag Die.

I have used beautiful papers from Riddersholm design called Chantilly Dawn from Live & Love Crafts  which I have stitched with the sewing machine. I have coloured the Floral Swirl Corner die with a mixture of vintage photo distress ink and cosmic shimmer mist in turqouise . I then added some more sugar glitter !  I have misted a cream wild rose with the turquoise again and added peach roses to brighten it up !

I have added a Tim Holtz rosette die in cream and topped with a peach satin bow and misted flower with chocolate brad for the center .

Just had to show you more of these gorgeous papers , a view from the back !! The clothes peg is from American Crafts and you can see some cheesecloth peeking at the side which I had frayed at the edges and had added a dab of dried marigold distress ink.

Hope you can join us and pop on over to the challenge and see the wonderful inspiration from the

Magnolia Down Under Challenge Girls !!!

I would like to enter my creation into the following super challenges
