Just Magnolia & Stampin for weekend & Spoonful sugar challenges

Tomorrow is my daughter Freya's 12th birthday (Happy Birthday Freya!) so I have combined a couple of challenges to come up with this card for her. I have followed the fantastic sketch from the Just Magnolia challenge blog which can be found here and the colour challenge at Stampin for the weekend challenge which can be found here which this week was Purple and Yellow. Sorry the photo looks more like blue than purple but it definitely is purple that I have used. I am also entering it into A spoonful of sugars challenge which was to have butterflies somewhere on your project.
The image is a Magnolia stamp called Tilda with lilacs which I have coloured with my Prisma pencils and cut out and layered with my circle nestabililies. The sentiment is a stamp by Cuddly Buddly cut out with nesties. The butterflies are cut from the new X-cut butterfly punch and finished off with gems, the Daisies have been punched out with X-cut daisy punches finished off with purple gems in the middle. The purple ribbon with hearts on it is from a cheap packet of ribbons I bought from The Range and the backing papers are form Papermania pad.
Thanks for looking x


  1. Oh this is gorgeous, Julie! Stunning, hun! Purple and yellow are the 2 colours that I just can't seem to work with. Such a shame, cuz they're delish! I love everything about this card, it is FAB, you clever thing! Hugs, Sem x

  2. Gorgeous card Julie, such a sweet image and you have coloured Tilda so lovely. Those papers are so pretty and your layered flowers and butterflies are such a beautiful detail.
    Thank you for joining us on our very first challenge at "Stampin´for the Weekend" and we hope you will play along with us on a weekly basis. Good luck.

  3. oh what a perfect image to use Julie, I love lilacs, shame they don't last all summer long on a tree, but they smell so pretty. Love all the butterflies and flowers you've added around the image, and your coloring is superb. Fabulous job on a fab card.
