Magnolia Midway Reminder - Shapely Cards

Hello my lovelies how ya all doing? We are hoping to get some decorating done, my kitchen needs finishing & the passageway & all my million doors need glossing.........urgh, would you like to do it for me???? What do you mean you are busy crafting!! ;0) Just kidding my lovelies.

Okie dokie I'm here today with a Midway Reminder for Midweek Magnolia's & the challenge is...........
............yep no squares, no oblongs, no rectangles allowed...........we want to see your shapely cards ;0)
Now please dont shout but I finally got around to inking this little lady up.........
............I said dont shout!!! This card base I actually made 2 weeks ago which is why there is no stitching..........yes I have a few card bases made up then do an image to match..........eventually lol. Most of the time though I sit & colour an image then find things to match lol.

I have attached one of the lovely MF 'Decorative Hangers' to this as its a hanging & not a actual card ;0)
I lurve these hangers & have quite a few...........can never have too many of something ;0)

I've added lace (cant remember which one lol)& 'Shabby Seam Binding' & made a double bow & added a MF 'Pearl' to the centre.
I've also added a 'Birdcage' using an Impression Obsession die & a bird cut from a Marianne die & added a 'Pearl' for her eye. Flowers are all a selection from  Prima.

The tage I cut from the paper pad & added a Prima 'Bird shaped clip' to the corner. The tile is also Prima.

The image is 'Tilda Binding Flowers' from the Special Moments 2013 collection. I coloured her with Distress Markers, I soooooooo lurve these. I'm still trying to get hair right........that was always something I found easy with copics lol. 
The frame of course is Spellbinders 'Floral Ovals'. I also added dots using a Pearl Pen.

The gorgeous papers are Graphic 45 'Secret Garden' & I inked all the edges with walnut distress ink & also distressed them a little. I've also added 'Cheese Cloth' between the 2 layers. The rolled flower I made with my Marianne die & added a coloured pearl inside.

Well I think thats it from peeps but why not join us in our challenge, there is still a week left. All of my DT buddies have made AMAZING cards.........I love these girls they are super talented & so inspirational!!

I will be round to see you a various times when I can in between decorating. Thank you soooooo much for stopping by it means the world to me.

Squishy hugs to all mmwah
