Four Challenges, One Card .....



I have made this card for the following challenges,


Basic Grey Challenge 2 "pink, yellow, brown"


Poftcraft Monday Challenge "My Favourite Things"

I have followed the fab tutorial by Debby, at Just Magnolia Monthly Challenges to make a 3D stamped image, coloured with promarkers, glossy accents, papers are BG lemonade, fiskars border punch, retro flower punch, buttons, ribbon, sentiment is craftwork cards.

I stamped several images colouring the extra pieces I needed to build up the layers and cutting them out, it is quite time consuming but the effect is worth it. The sketch is another really good one to work with from Sketch Saturday. The colours from Basic Grey Lemonade are perfect for this weeks challenge, My card is inspired by my favourite things cute Magnolia Tilda stamps and the colour pink for the Pollycraft Challenge.

Think I need to iron tonight :( so no cards tonight, I have been staying up late crafting and need to get back into a routine as this won't help those stressful school mornings!! Only 2 weeks left of the holidays, Lucy is looking forward to being with her friends again, Philip will start nursery sometime in september as we managed to get full time support to help him get around!! I will get some time for myself at last!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Angela xx

This is gorgeous Angela, I love the colours. I have those papers too and I love them. I had a shot at the Magnolia monthly challenge too. You're right it is very time consuming doing the 3d and I tend to wonder if I have 3d'd the right bits lol. I love your Anya card too. I don't have any Anya's but they are very cute.
