BasicGrey Challenges # 45 and Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 98...Cherish!

Hey stampin' friends! I am back with another card today.  I made this card for BasicGrey Challenges, which is, is Shabby Chic and at Magnolia Down Under Challenges, Kylie, has designed a gorgeous sketch for us to use! I will definitely be using this gorgeous sketch again, Kylie!!!

Once again we have a fabulous prize at BasicGrey Challenges. To be eligible for the generous $25.00  gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore you need to make a Shabby Chic project and use at least one BasicGrey product on your card or creation and indicate in your post what BG item you have used. For the MDUC challenge we ask that you use a Magnolia stamp on your creation and we have a wonderful prize up for grabs this week too from our very own talented Denise, a set of her new gorgeous papers!!!

For my card this week I used this sweet stamp, Tilda with Butterfly Jeans. She is just too cute for words! I coloured her with my Copics and cut her out and then pop-dotted her on the rectangle mat cut from a rectangle Nesties.  I used BasicGrey Cappella 6x6 papers and 3 painted BG brads but I am not sure which line they are from. I roughed up the edges of the papers with my Tim Holtz Paper Distressing tool and then pained the papers with Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint. I am really loving the gauze that I am seeing on so many gorgeous vintage and Shabby cards out there in blogland. So, I raided the first aid kit and used some gauze on this card for the first time and I love it....I spritzed it with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist first and let it dry. I added some cotton lace trim, crinkled seam binding and I also used my Magnolia Tilda Lace border die. I pained the Prima flowers with the white crackle paint too and then added the BG brads to the centres. The butterflies are cut from QuicKutz cork material with my Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and then pained with white crackle paint. I added a few half pearls here and there. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on, on a tag cut with a QuicKutz tag die.  

Well, thanks so much for popping by again to see my BG Challenges and MDUC Challenges card! I really hope you can join both challenges! Please visit the DTs too and check out the gorgeous creations that they have made to inspire you!

Happy stampin'!

The softness you've achieved in this is amazing & I love all the detail with the multiple textures of gauze, lace, doily edge & seam binding. the way you scatter pearls is delightful too & I love the colours of those brads.
