Just Magnolia Week 2 "Pink & Green"

It's week two over on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog and the theme is "Pink & Green". For my card I have used a cute Tilda from the Pink Collection in 2008. She has been coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Worn Lipstick (Blush)
Tea Dye (Hair)
Peeled Paint (Dress)
Tattered Rose & Worn Lipstick blended (Tights & Rose)
Shabby Shutters (Stem of Rose)

The papers are all Basic Grey "Porcelain" and I have layered them with Core-dinations cardstock that has been sanded around the edges. I have also used some gorgeous green velvet ribbon from my stash, some blossoms that I got at Ally Pally attached with a spacer and Doodlebug sugar coated brad, and a heart pin. The petals are made with a Woodware punch that I got from Ally Pally. Finally I had added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I have also decorated the inside with left over scraps of the Basic Grey papers and have also added some more of the flowers to the inside too.
It is lovely to have a Magnolia dedicated challenge blog again, as I was disappointed when the Magnolia one went on to incorporate Stampavie I much prefer Magnolia's....but then that is just my personal preference.

Have been having a relaxing day so far...doing off chores and now I am watching the F1 Bahrain Grand Prix.....Go Button!
