Midweek Magnolia's Challenge - La la la la

Hi my lovelies how are you all? Thank you sooooooooo much for your lovely comments, Natalie is a lot better now, still needing her inhaler but a lot lot less. 

Sorry about my title I was clearing my throat ready for todays challenge over at
  Midweek Magnolia's, this fortnight we want you to............
...............sing it to us. Yep we want you to make a card inspired by a song, easy right. Well there is a catch as you are not aloowed to use Happy Birthday & not allowed to use Christmas Carols. It has to be a 'SONG' la la la la la................

Ok so I cheated a little as I ran out of time. So I went over to my coloured up images box & chose one that had been coloured up & thought of a song to go with it. 
This card was inspired by Mariah Carey 'Butterfly' I used to be a DJ so I know lots of songs although I'm not a Mariah Carey fan.............I prefer latest chart music ;0)

I've used Tim Holtz 'On The Edge Butterfly' die, cut it twice & layered it. I've also added Magnolia's

The rolled flowers I made with a Marianne die, the white one also got the edges frantaged with wine (which is a purply colour, lush) The butterflies are Magnolia dies also the flower is. I also added a 'Bark Heart' from LLC.

The lace is from my stash.

The image is 'Tilda with Ugg Boots' which I just adore, isn't she fab. She was coloured in copics, I will look for the list as I cant remember what I did with it lol, so will try add numbers later.

The totally gorgeous papers are Pion 'Purple Wallpaper' & Pion 'Purple Rose' I machine stitched them & inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink.

Please pop on over to look at my teamies work, OMG, they are stunning.........absolutely mind blowingly gorgeous. Also its our lovely Teresa's birthday today, pop on over wish her Happy Birthday ;0)

Well I'm going now as I've got family coming up from Stoke today & staying over. I will come round to visit you tonight when I go bed.............I will do it on my kindle so excuse any typing errors lol.

Thanks for stopping by it means soooooooo much
Squishy hugs to all mmwah

Hi sweetie, it's been a while since my last visit, but I haven't forgotten you ;-)!! When I saw you had your 2nd grandchild I just had to pop down and read about it; what an amazing story! I don't think there are many grans who can say the've delivered one of their own grandchildren. But it looks like he's doing ok now, judging by your last pictures! So glad! Anyhow, love your today card! Handy isn't it, having ready coloured images at hand. I must confess that I sometimes do it that way too hehe!! Hugs Frea
