with a gorgeous sketch by our talented Sabine 
Here it is !!

There is a super prize and lots of inspiration from the design team so pop on over to check all the details .

I have chosen a super cute stamp from LOTV  called Teddy with balloon for my card . 
I have stamped him onto Langton paper with archival coffee ink. I used distress ink pads to colour him. 

I cur a 6 inch squared card from papermill card and rounded the edges with a cropadile punch . The colours on him were inspiration from LOTV paperpad called Heartfelt.

I have used the Magnolia doohickey envelope edge at the top and used the mini banner die lights from whiff of joy at the top with mini roses from WOC on top.  The arched window die cuts placed under him are from my bloggy friend from Marriane design.. The beautiful pink ribbon is from Live & Love Crafts . 
Lastly the flower is made from the Magnolia vintage daisy die on the Magnolia Doohickey Jolly tag.

Virgo Tilda !

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I just had to colour Virgo Tilda the minute she arrived in the post . I just love this collection so many cool ideas a calender would be awesome if you had them all I think from The Zodiac Collection. I made a scene around her with Magnolia Spring Fence & Afternoon Tea Bench. I have used  a combination of distress ink markers and pads and finished with an inkessential white gel pen. I stamped them on Langton cold press paper with Archival Coffee Ink. The Happy Birthday sentiment is an old stamp from Teddybo on these gorgeous Shabby LOTV papers using Magnolia Doohickey Jolly tag finished with butterfly charm and pink satin ribbon. I added these cittlebug letters to spell VIRGO and put them onto the simple stamps poppy banner.

The gorgeous corners are from my bloggy friend and are La La land filigree corners.
The bronze ARTFUL charm is from ideology by Tim Holtz and is finished with this gorgeous blue silky crush ribbon.

I have made a flower from The Magnolia Doohickey peony die also using cheesecloth and distress ink to colour them. The beautiful button in the middle is from The Hobby House.

I hope you like my card and I would like to enter into The following  Challenge :-
