Another post from me today

Another post from me today as I have made another card, this one is for 3 challenges. I have followed the beautiful sketch from Stampin for the weekend I am also entering this card into Just Magnolias challenge where you have to use a Magnolia stamp and also for this week a metal embellishment charm. I have used a little metal dragonfly which I thought was really cute and went well with the rest of the card. I am also entering the challenge at Pollycraft where you had to add an arrow to your creation. I have added 2 little arrows to the bottom right hand corner, I ran them through the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder to give them some texture. The image has been coloured in with Promarkers, the sentiment is a rubber stamp from Cuddly Buddly, I have used my new Martha Stewart heart border punch along the top, this one seems to be working ok. I am still getting poor results with my scalloped one and think I may need to contact the company that I bought it from at the Newbury show. The backing papers are from the Daisy and Dandelion range A5 paper pad and the buttons are from Papermania. Thanks for looking x


  1. Such a beautiful colour combo Julie and your colouring of Tilda is fabulous. I am still waiting for my valentine punch to arrive and seeing the beautiful effect you have achieved is making me green with envy. Your papers are so pretty and your flowers are layered to perfection, love your leaves and wee charm.
