Magnolia "Thinking of you" Card

 Good evening blogging buddies...I have a sweet little Magnolia card to share with you tonight.
This card is for my Auntie...she has had a huge month, her birthday (which I missed), her Mum and her sister passing away and now a new Grandchild that arrived last week.  So she has had a turbulent time and has been in my thoughts lately.  
I thought a nice card would be well-received.

I followed another one of Hanna's sketches.  They really are to die for! Lots of layering and detail.  I have really enjoyed using her designs.  I used some yummy Magnolia DPs that Kellie kindly sent me from Tickled Pink Stamps.  (I also bought my stamp, doily and charm from her store as well).  I teamed the DPs with some silver paper, some mauve (kind of furry) paper and mounted it all on Bashful Blue card.  I added some silver ribbon and a blue crystal stem as well. I certainly used lots of embellishments on this card and so I think it would qualify for the Pimp your Card Challenge at Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog.

 The little blue roses I bought from Wild Orchid Crafts and I nestled some of them into flowers cut on my Martha Stewart punch. Because of these flowers I would like to enter this card in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Flowers and the Sir Stampalot Challenge - Punch It! (Sorry I cut them off a bit in the photo - you have to look at the first photo to get a good view of the punched flowers.)

I used Versamark ink and Silver embossing powder for the sentiment in the middle of the doily and this enables me to enter the Quixotic Challenge - Emboss it!  Because of the metallic touches, the silver paper, the charm, the silver embossing, the metal stem and the silver ribbon I would also like to enter the Metal madness Challenge at Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenges




Over at By The Cute and Girly their challenge is "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.."  On my card my something old is my silver ribbon, my something new is this gorgeous Tilda stamp.  She is new to my collection...and I just love her!  My something borrowed is the silver paper and purple paper which I have collected from my sister and a friend and the something blue is the DP and the card.

Well I think that is about all the challenges I can handle tonight.  I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and hope that my Auntie likes it too.

Today I did a Casual day on a 5/6 class and tomorrow I am back to my 3/4 class for the rest of the week.  Reports are due in next week so I am busy working on them at the moment...I will be definately celebrating when they are over!!!

I hope your week is going well.  Thanks for popping over to my blog today.
