GDT Just Magnolia and hAnglar & Challenge and DT La-La Land Crafts

Good morning and happy Friday!! 

Boy what a busy week... the kids are finished school for the summer so of course we've had award cermonies, sports days and early collections. I am so happy to have some down time... before the boredom fighting starts, lol. 

Today I have 2 cards to share. I am thrilled to announce that I have been asked by the lovely Bev to be guest designer on the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenges blog for the month of July.

The theme for this week is Anything Goes with the option of Shabby Chic.

I am seriously in love with Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden collection. They are just all round beautiful papers. I've distressed them and machine stitched them to some salmon pink cardstock. The lace, flowers and smaller pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the doily is from ebay. I've spritzed my flowers with Pearl glimmer mist to add shimmer - but as always I can't pick it up on the camera, it's just about visable on the white sweetheart flower.

My image has been coloured using copic markers - 
Skin: E00, 01, 11, R20
Dress: YR21, 30, 31
Wrap: E04, 08
Flowers: G20, 21, 24. E04, 08

Wild Orchid Challenges - Shabby Chic and Friendship
TOMIC - Shimmer and Pearls


My next card is for La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday. This week the DT are showing you Circle Cards. You are more than welcome to play along as we would love to see your creations with La-La Land Craft stamps. Please link your projects to our Customer Gallery.

for my circles I used both Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. Dress Up Marci has been coloured with Copic markers and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I've added a little bit of lace and some pearls for embellishment.
