Cute Card Thursday Challenge 58 "Mirror Mirror"

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog we have a theme of "Mirror Mirror", we want you to use something shiny on your card/project. For my card I have used a Magnolia stamp from the new Chasing Butterflies Collection and she has been coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Peeled Paint/Tea Dye (Umbrella)
Broken China & Peeled Paint blended (Coat)
Peeled Paint (Wellies)

The papers are all WRMK "Tiffanys" and I have used some Core-dinations cardstock, which I have sanded the edges of for layering. For the shiny part of this weeks theme I have used some metallic origami papers that I picked up at HobbyCraft earlier this week, and I have run them through the cuttlebug using an embossing folder. To finish off the card I have added flowers by Prima & Craft Fairy, attached with spacers and Doodlebug sugar coated brads. I also added some leaves done with a Woodware punch, some Anita's teal ribbon, and some bling from my stash and a sentiment by Craftwork Cards inked with chalk ink. Finally I have added some Glossy Accents to the rain and the puddle Tilda is standing in.

As you can see I decorated the inside with the leftover scraps...waste not want not, as they say...LOL

We have two guest designers this week, Marcea and Sam. We also have a fab prize for one lucky winner. A Stampin Up set called Botanical Blooms. Jenny from Made on the Farm has kindly donated it and she has also made a card to show you, using the set.
If you would like to see the other DT's work, the GD's and Jenny's just pop over to the blog. Can you find it all here.
Today my new washing machine arrives...finally peace will return to the house, instead of a jet plane taking off and landing in my kitchen on a daily basis....LOL
I have been busy playing with my new Copics, and tomorrow I will add a card that I have coloured with them.
