Just Magnolia #8, Cute Card Thursday # 36, Copic Colour Challenge #16 & Colour Create # 18....Tilda says"Life is too short for beige!"


Wow!!! I managed to combine four great challenges into one very colourful and very bright card, lol! I made this card for the Just Magnolia Challenge following Rach's fabulous sketch...definitely one to use again as it makes a fab looking card without being too complicated...gotta love that!!!!! I also followed along with the challenge at CCT to use punches/die cuts, Copic Colour Challenge and Colour Create Challenge #18 the colours of the rainbow!!!!

I made my cardbase 6x6 with yellow Bazzill Basics cardstock and matted with blue Bazzill cardstock and used my new BG Lime Ricky 6x6 paper pad and brads. I thought Lime Ricky would be the perfect paper for Colour Create challenge...colours of the rainbow!
I stamped Spring Tilda and the butterfly scene from the Magnolia Chasing Butterflies collection on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock and coloured Tilda and the secne with my Copics. I used Y06, but I don't have RV11 or E39 so I used RV13 and E37 instead. For the CCT challenge, I use my new EK Success border punch, circle and scalloped circle Nesties and QK Butterfly die. I cut the butterfly die out of the QK adhesive clear plastic material and then dusted it with Glamour Dust!

To finish it off some yummy American Crafts ribbon, Primas, Stickles and the perfect sentiment by Stamping Bella...love, love, love this sentiment!!!! I stamped it with VersaMark ink on the blue cardstock and used American crafts Zing white embossing powder...love the crisp white sentiment!

Katharina has a stunning gift holder using one of the new images on her blog here just to tease you a bit, smile!

Hi Sweetie, I think this is one of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen, you're making me weep here!!! What a talent you have for putting papers and colours together, it's all so full of life and vibrancy. Superb colouring and I think I have to have that sentiment stamp, it's brilliant. Look forward to seeing what you do with the new WOJ, they sound gorgeous. Hope you're well and having a good weekend. Hugs, Chris xx
