Magnolia Down Under Challenge #20

Hi Everyone,

Well another challenge, another card!!

The theme for this challenge was Father's Day so I searched through my boxes of papers and found the perfect paper for this card.

Here is my creation for today.

I mounted the patterned paper onto green card then onto the navy base card.
Tilda was coloured using a combination of alcohol markers and watercolour pencils / aquabrush.

I added some 3-Dimensional glaze to the little heart on her envelope.

The green strip across the card was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then stamped the greeting onto white card and mounted it onto a piece of pale blue card to co-ordinate with the background paper.

To finish off, I added a brown paper flower and 2 pale aqua brushed fabric flowers, using a gold brad and some self-adhesive gems for the flower centres.


Cardstock - Not quite navy, Certainly Celery, Whisper white - Stampin' Up!
Ink - Buckaroo Blue - Stampin' Up!
Greeting - Best Wishes and More - Stampin' Up! -
Crystal Effects - (dimensional glaze) Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Argyle

Extras - Flowers, gold brad, self-adhesive gems
