BasicGrey Challenges # 38 and Magnolia Down Under Challenges # 84...Love Beyond Measure!

Good morning...back with my second post this morning...scroll down to see my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge card! 

Today I have combined my BasicGrey Challenges and Magnolia Down Under Challenges card together! We have a fabulous sketch over at BasicGrey Challenges by the super talented and sweet Heather and at MDUC the challenge is Distressing!!!!

We are very excited at BasicGrey Challenges to say that we have 9 very talented ladies joining the BasicGrey Challenges DT it was very difficult to select the new members as we had an overwhelming number of talented entrants. We will also be having Guest DT members regularly so keep an eye out for that...it could be you! So please welcome, Angelique, Cathy, Fleur, Hanna, Jacqui, Julie, Liz Mieko and Sandie to the BasicGrey Challenges DT! 

For my card I have used Pyrus 6x6 Papers and various BG painted brads and buttons. I also used some World Wind cardstock that I have had in my stash forever and distressed the edges of the cardstock and stamped with my Kelly Panacci Stitches stamps.  I have also used this sweet special edition "Celebration Tilda" that I just love to bits. I couldn't resist getting her from creashop-duymelot. I have coloured her with my Copics and used the Toner Copics to tone down the Orange and Aqua so that it coordinated with the muted colours in the paper better....LOVE the toner Copics...so worth getting some for you Copic collection,smile! Then I cut Tilda out and pop-dotted her on the oval. I also used my Marianne D flower dies and QuicKutz leaves. The sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons and I thought the sentiment "Love Beyond Measure" would be perfect with Tilda as it looks like she is holding up her arms to say "I love you thiiissss much" just like my kidos did when they were little,smile. To finish it off I added some crinkled seam binding, cotton lace trim and tied the button on with hemp twine.

Here is the inside...I used another Melissa Frances rub-on, on a QuicKutz tag...the Cutie Patootie ticket is from Stamping Bella stamped on Kraft card cut out and inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by again this morning and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can join us at BasicGrey Challenges and Magnolia Down Under Challenges! Please stop by the challenge blogs too and have a look-see at the gorgeous creations the respective DTs have made to inspire you!!!! 

Happy Stampin' and Happy Family Day Weekend!

I love the way you have muted the Copic colours to tone with the papers - I will have to get some BG!! Love the colours & the way you've used the lace & seam binding together with buttons (another note to self - USE BUTTONS). Thanks for all you inspiration.
