Cupcake Challenge 48

Morning all, its time for Cupcake Challenge 48 and it is extra exciting for me this week as it was my turn to choose the theme and I chose "Blossoms and Butterflies" - nice and easy!

For my DT card I used a Magnolia image that I was sent by a blog bud and I have coloured her with distress inks. I coloured the lilacs pink (?!) to match in with the paper and I added some pink stickles to them so they really sparkle in real life. The papers are from K & Co - I just love them - they are so bold and colourful, this was a double sided sheet that I cut in half and turned over hence the two very bold patterns. I really like how it has turned out, it is not my usual thing but I'm definitely going to try and be more bold in the future!

I kept the inside nice and simple, I still have a bit more of these papers and I want to eek them out for another card as I like them so much!!! lol!

Finally a close up, you can see the sparkly flowers in this one!

Card/Paper: White and pink card, K & Co Berry Sweet (I think)
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with Lilacs
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, weathered wood, peeled paint, black soot. Inkssentials pen for highlighting.
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels, stickles
Tools: Water brush
