Magnolia DT card

Hi everyone, hope you’ve had a good day today. Here’s another of my Magnolia DT cards this time featuring the gorgeous butterfly Tilda from Chasing Butterflies collection last spring and the little rose stamp. I’ve watercoloured her with distress inks, cut her out and and added little wire antennae and lots of stickles. The background card and papers were all sent by Magnolia so I’m afraid I don’t know the brands and all the flowers and leaves and dark blue ribbon are from Magnolia too. The blue scalloped circles were all cut with nestability dies and the one behind Tilda has been embossed with a CB swirls folder. They’ve all been sponged with white ink and stickled of course :D. I also used up a small piece of the vellum paper I made for my Magnolia chocolate box card for the bottom and I sprayed the background card under it so that there’s a bit of blue showing through.

I’m entering my card into these challenges:
Cupcake Challenges ‘flower power’
Stamp with Fun ‘spring’
By the cute and girly ‘spring’

Should be up to date soon hopefully so that I can catch up with what you’ve all been doing :D. TFL tt for now.
