Hey Everyone....

It has been a long time coming but I finally have a new Magnolia card to share 
with you using lots of pretty flowers and leaves from "I am Roses"!!

Tilda is coloured using distress inks...

The friend sentiment is a chipboard from Make it crafty.
I coloured it with ink, added some little white dots with one of my pens, then covered with glossy accents to give it a lovely shine!! 

Here is a close up of the lovely flowers and leaves I used from "I am Roses"...
they have such a beautiful selection in the store!! 

I added in the background a die cut from 
"Uniquely Creative" called "Heart wreath"...

You're more awesome than....!!

Hey everyone....

It was my friend Jenny's birthday recently so I made her a 
card using the super cute unicorn stamps from Stamping Bella...

The sets I used are called "Unicorn sentiment set" and "Set of unicorns"...

The designer paper is from Lawn Fawn... 
I thought the paper worked perfectly for the rainbow of 
colours used on my unicorns and other pieces on the card!!

Jenny loves a shaker card as she is the shaker pro so 
I thought what better kind of card to make her.... 
a shaker!!

The shaker stands up when you open the card and is see through 
so you can see right through all the pretty sequins...

A close up of the shaker piece... filled with lots of pretties!!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing her birthday card...

Thanks for stopping by, Till next time..
