Guest Designer For Lovely HAnglar Or Sweet Magnolia.

Hello, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well?
I am so delighted to be chosen as guest designer for the next two challenges at
Thank you ladies.
The challenge theme for the next two weeks is
Summer Fun!

I used Playing On The beach Tilda from the Sea Breeze 2013 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders opulent oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics and Sofiero papers.
Other dies used are Little Darlings lovely view, La - La - Lands filigree corner, Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily, Magnolia Doohickey lovely fence, Magnolia Doohickey jolly tag and Cheery Lynn pine branches. I have inked the papers and die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The ivory rose organza and 5mm pink pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
I have cut out the butterflies from Maja Design Vintage spring basics papers and inked the edges with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink.

Here is a photo with the Doohickey jolly tag removed from the canvas corp, mini paper bag.
The mini bag, pearl string and blue shabby seam binding are from Live & Love crafts.
The sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley.
I have used Frantage shabby white embossing enamel on the tag.

A close up of Playing On The Beach Tilda.
I sprinked some Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and  paper pieced Tilda's top with Maja Design Vintage Spring basics paper. I have added Ranger white liquid pearls to Tilda's top, hat and randomly around the image.
I used a Inkssentials opaque white pen to dot Tilda's cheeks.

I used a selection of flowers for the arrangement from The Ribbon Girl, Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts.
I Frantaged the daisy with shabby pink embossing enamel.
The anchor charm is from The Ribbon Girl and the twine is from Fantastic Ribbons.

Inside the card is decorated with Maja Design paper and a Spellbinders opulent oval.

I hope you like my Summer Fun card?
