Two new Magnolia Cards

Good evening everyone, hope you are ok and have survived all the snow, it is just yucky slush here and the school run a pushchair was not fun!
Here is my first card. The image was a rak of Jane which I have had for ages as I did not want to colour her as she is so beautiful but I plucked up the courage too and I think I did her proud. She has been coloured in distressed inks and sparkles added to her wings. I have distressed the papers from K and Co's life journey script pad and added tea dye distressed inks to the edges. The lace is from my stash and the flowers are wildorchardcrafts which I have tied with a bit of faded frayed ribbon. I am so pleased with the way it looks I may keep it for myself! The sentiment is heroarts.
Challenges entered for -
  • Simon Says Shabby Chic - and I will be brave and add it to their DT Call
  • Magnolia Down Under - another use for a stamp this was a winter kit.
  • Roses on Paper winter - the stamp is a winter kit stamp (abit vague I know will try and do another card to fit this)
  • Just Magnolia - Thank you.

On to my second card I have to show you. Yummy pink bobunny papers and the grey is gorgeous and from Laura Ashley. Tilda has been coloured in copics and cut with my new nesties 8 which were a Christmas present. A simple bow has been added with my usual roses. A simple birthday card as the person it is intended to doesn't do fussy!

Challenges entered for -

  • Charisma - anything new - new papers and nesties
  • Cute Card Thursday - pink and grey
  • Dutch Dare - sketch
  • Magnolia Down Under - another use for the image - it is a christmas image used as a birthday card.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards

hugs Vicky x
