Tilda & Co Challenge #9

This weeks Challenge on the Tilda & Co Challenge blog was... "Spring is in the air".

~*~*~ Challenge 9 ~*~*~
Spring is in the Air!
As spring is almost
upon us, the first signs are there now, the spring bulbs, the baby lambs are out
already, I thought it was time to get those spring and Easter projects under
way!
You could make an Easter card, a gift box for Easter eggs or other
goodies, alter a flowerpot for some spring flowers or a spring themed card or
layout. Absolutely anything, as long as it has at least one Magnolia stamped
image and follows the theme!


So here is my card. I covered a blank white card in Lilac Bazill cardstock completely. I then used some Basic Grey paper to make a smaller square. The same cardstock was used to make the scalloped square and then I used a piece of plain white card to create the scene. I added quite a bit of bling to this card, seems I'm in a bling mood at the moment!
I used 3D foam pads to adhere Tilda, the butterflies, the sun and the clouds to make them stand out. To add to the bling effect I framed the squares with some sparkly fibres. The clouds and Tilda's wings were enhanced with some stickles. The flowers, sun, butterflies and Tilda's shoes all had little gold and crystal dots put on them.

If you would like to join in with this challenge or even go to visit to see what the DT members have created, and they do make some stunning things, then go and visit the blog it's here.

Stamps:- Magnolia , background flowers - Stampin Up - basket full of fun
