Have a sweet day...!!

Hi everyone...
Yesterday I had my Copics out and coloured in this gorgeous Tilda from 
the Pink lemonade collection!!

I wanted to do a card with a mint and peach theme... 
So I grabbed some supplies from my shop, 
Prima flowers, peach ribbons, some papers and a pretty mint Trim..!!

This is what I came up with....

The card base and pieces were cut out using my Silhouette machine...
and the Heart doily border is a die from La la land crafts!!

This Sweet sentiment id by C.C designs.. "Have a sweet day"..

I added some clear Wink of Stella for some sparkles, Glossy accents to her shades and some opaque white paint for detail!!

All my edges were inked using an ink edger by Prima in the colour of Attic dust..

Thankyou for visiting me... 
I had fun putting this card together to share with you!!

Hey friends...
Today is a new challenge at Magnolia down under  - Shabby chic!!

I used the stamp Gone fishing Tilda from the Sea breeze collection...
 I coloured her with Distress ink markers and distress ink refills!!

I'm having fun at the moment making CAS cards...

I heat embossed my background stamp using a clear embossing powder, then used my blending tool to add spun sugar and tattered rose distress ink all over it!!

The Hello sunshine sentiment is a new one from the Pink lemonade collection which was in the stampclub kit and the seaweed is a new die from the first Doohickey club kit!!
