New Challenge Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Goes.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well?
We have a new challenge starting today at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our theme is 
Anything Goes.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are...............
Tilda's Town. 
Stamp and Create. 

I have made a shaped easel Mother's day card.

I have used Neenah cardstock to cut a Spellbinders opulent oval and stamped Tilda Rose Scent from the "New" Lost & Found Collection 2013 onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured Tilda with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
I inked around the edge of the frame with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink and surrounded Tilda with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts. 

I have used 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 to make the easel card and base.
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics from Live & Love Crafts. 
The pretty lace and doily are from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE 
The rose organza trim along the bottom of the card is from The Ribbon Girl. 
The Pippi butterfly is Memory Box. I have Frantaged the butterfly with shabby white embossing enamel and coloured the centre with a pink Polychromos pencil.
The peacock is Magnolia Doohickey. I cut white card with it and inked around the edge with spun sugar distress ink.
The filigree corner die is La-La-Land. I have also inked  around the corner with 
spun sugar distress ink.
I computer generated the sentiment, Cut it out with a CartUs circle die and inked the entire circle with spun sugar distress ink. I sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the sentiment and adhered it to the inner part of a Cheery Lynn nautical doily.
The 5mm pink pearls in the corner are from The Ribbon Girl. 
I have die cut a Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag and inked around the edges with spun sugar
 distress ink. I have tied a bow through the eyelet with white shabby seam binding from 
Live & Love Crafts and used sticky pads to adhere it to the base card .

I have used a variety of flowers for the arrangement. They are a 30mm wild rose and 20mm pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums and pink poppies from
In between the arrangement I have placed Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches. I have inked the edges of the branches with spun sugar distress ink.

Here is a close up of Rose Scent Tilda.
I have added ArtDeco glamour dust to Tildas fur on her slippers and spray from the perfume bottle.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

The challenges are now two weekly and we would love you to come and join in with us.
My teamies have designed some gorgeous creations, so why not pop over to have a peek?
