Anything Goes At Marvelous Magnolia.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well?
We have a new challenge starting today at Marvelous Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is
Anything Goes.
We want to see anything creative as long as it features a Magnolia image.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is lovely Sandy from

For  this challenge I have made a Joy Fold card using my favourite colour combo
Blue & Brown.

I used Tilda With Maggie The Monkey from Animals Of The Year 2014 Collection.
The stamp is from Sirstampalot. 
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders stately circle. I have inked around the circle with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils.

The papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring basics. I have matted the papers onto Crafters Companion Kraft cardstock.
The dies that I have used are Little Darlings lovely view, La - La - Land filigree corner, Doohickey lovely fence and Memory Box Pippi butterfly.
I used Frantage shabby white embossing enamel on the butterfly and adhered a 5mm blue pearl to the centre.
I used tea dye distress ink on the cardstock, papers and dies.
The lace across the centre of the card is from ebay and the diamond lace along the bottom is from The Ribbon Girl.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the blue beaded berries are Magnolia.
The 25mm satin ribbon and 5mm white pearls are  from The Ribbon Girl.

I sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added 3mm white pearls.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and used Ranger white liquid pearls on Maggie's cheeks.

Here is the card with the ribbon untied.

Here you can see the card inside.
The sentiments are from Lili Of The Valley.
I have used CartUs circle dies to mat the sentiment on the right.

I hope you like my Joy Fold Card?
