Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week we want to see your card or project of “Elegance.” So head over to Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden.
My card features the lovely “Prom Queen Tilda.” I colored her in Copics, cut her out and mounted her on a Spellbinders circle and scallop die cut.
I used black and pink Bazzill cardstock with a pretty DP from Echo Park’s Be Mine collection. I cut two strips of Wild Orchid Craft black lace and attached it to the card with pink cardstock that was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and lace along the middle.
I added some flowers from WOC and Hobby Lobby with a stick pin that I made with beads from my stash. I didn’t have any large black flowers so I sprayed a white rose with graphite Glimmer Mist. My butterfly die cut is from Memory Box cut from silver shimmer paper from The Paper Co. and I put a little black Stickles on his body. Then I gave Tilda’s tiara a coat of silver Stickles and added several pink rhinestones. Tilda’s shoes also got a coat of Glossy Accents.
Here’s the inside of my card ready for a personal message or sentiment.
