A Duo of Magnolia Challenges

Hi bloggers!!!! I got some crafty time here and there over the past couple of days so I made 2 cards for 2 Magnolia challenges - Just Magnolia & Magnolia Down Under Challenges. Both challenges are sketches so no chance of combining them.... lol. 

First up is Just Magnolia - because I made it first ;) I've gone really vibrant and colourful with this one,  using Basic Grey 'Hello Luscious' 6x6 papers.

Copics used  - Y00, 02, 11, 15. R32, 35, 37, 39. E00, 01, 11, 23, 25, 27. R20. G82, 85.

Wild Orchid flowers - all glittered up with Star Dust stickles, as is the punched butterfly and Tilda's flowers in her hair. 

Other challenges - 
Craft Your Passion - Show us your layers
Crazy Challenge - 3 different papers
Get Hippity with Ippity - Spring/Summer
House of Gilli - lots of layers and faux or real stitching
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Stamp Fairy - Sparkle, 3 Patterned Papers and 2 Dies or Punches
Card Cupids - use Punches
Let's Ink It Up - no digis allowed -  Stitching
Paper Sundaes -  Use at least 2 from: Sparkle, Pearls, Die Cuts and the Colour Yellow {i used them all, lol}
Cute Card Thursday - No Text
Fabulous Friday - Birds and/or butterflies

Next is Magnolia Down Under Challenges and for this card I used Prima  'Jack n Jill' papers. I punched the border using Martha Stewart's Antique Lace punch and machine stitched down all my papers onto brown cardstock.

I made a tag using Whiff of Joy's tag die, cutting out both a brown card and white card tag and then trimming the white one slightly to leave a border of brown around it. The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley. 

The flowers have been glittered up with Star Dust and glimmer mist and I've also added Star Dust to Tilda's wing.

My image has been mounted up on 3D dots or added dimension. I finished off by adding some off white self adhesive pearls aroun the card. 

Copics used- E00, 01, 11, 43, 50, 53. RV 91, 93, 95, 99. G000, 00, 02.

Other Challenges -
Stamptacular Sunday - Must use a stamp - At least 5 layers {I have 12!!}
A Gem of a Challenge -Pearls and/or swirls 
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Add A Tag to your Project
Totally Gorjuss -  Bling it On
Polkadoodle - 3 patterned papers

Thanks for popping in!! Back tomorrow - but my blog is being hijacked by my kiddos... ;)
