Midweek Magnolia's DT Card - Favourite Colours

Good morning my lovelies how are you? Can I start this post by saying a MAHOOSIVE thank you for all the prayers & good wishes for Arjay.........they must be working as hes put on weight, his lungs are still small but hes doing fine bless him.
Also another MAHOOSIVE thank you for the birthday wishes for our princess, she had a lovely day ;0)

Ok so its time for another new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & its so so easy peasy...
............told you it was easy didnt I!!!!
Now I struggled with this as I have a few few faves, I love Blue & Brown but I also love Pink & Brown............but another one of my faves which I'm now loving is Violets/ thats what I went with..... ;0)
I also got to ink up one of my new stamps...........yayyyy finally lol.
I also went with a shaped card as I realised I had still never used this die..........surprising what you discover when your craft room has a make-over lol.

Paper I've used is the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Spring '7th May' I distressed the edges then inked them with Walnut DI.

I've used 2 Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies, 'SoWrapped Lovely' tag & the gorgeous 'Butterfly' OMG i really love this butterfly so much that it deserved to be frantaged up with Shabby Chic White & added sparkly pearls. I also added a 'Mini Bark Heart' these ;0)

I added 2 layers of lace, the bottom one from my stash & the top one is 'Cluny Fan Lace' & I added Shabby Seam Binding on top of that & on the tag.

This gorgeous Tilda is from the new Special Moments 2013 collection 'Forget Me Knot Tilda' I tried so tehard to not get anymore as I still have so many un-inked........but they are just too darn cute ;0)
Copic colours used........
E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R32, R20 - Skin
E59, E57, E55, E53, E51 - Hair
V12, V01, V000 - Dress
B16, B14, B12, B00 - Flowers
I also added Shabby White & 'Aged Wine' Frantage around the edge.

I added flowers from WOC & a Whimsy sentiment. I also added 'Cheese Cloth' under the image.

We hope you will join us & show us your favourite colours. Pop along & see what totally gorgeous creations my teamies have made.....wowwwwwwww is all I will say ;0)

Thank you sooooooo much as always for stopping by, I will be around later to visit you all. Natalie is away to the Alan Shearer centre for a couple of days so we are decorating her bedroom for when she comes back as a surprise. We are giving her a twinkling star ceiling..........when the fibre optics arrive, so excited about this bit. Will show pics when its all done & pretty ;0)

Well tatty bye from me, squishy hugs & funky love to all ;0)

I'm glad things are going well for the little one and that your daughter had a fabulous birthday. Your card is divine. I am jealous of your frantage. I want some but had issues with a vendor and had to cancel my order. You're reminding me that I need to get the stuff! It looks fabulous here.
