Buttons, Beads or Bows

 
Hello, Friends. It’s that time again…the Design Team at Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps are here to challenge you this fortnight with… 
 
Buttons, Beads or Bows
 

I used a new stamp from the “Once Upon a Time” collection, Tilda Longstocking. Isn’t she just adorable? She is one of my new favorites from this collection. And I decided to pile it on with all three options, buttons, beads and bows.
 

I used some cute designer papers from My Mind’s Eye called Bluebell and distressed with a little Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The cardstock is Bazzill as usual. I just love this Spellbinders Floral frame and I use it all the time. I decided to create an inner frame oval with my Silhouette Cameo so I can reproduce it without having to cut with scissors. I don’t mind that now and then but it becomes a chore if I have to cut by hand all the time. If you would like to have this cutting file in your library just email me at cathylee.co@gmail.com and I will send it to you for free.
 

I used my Inkadinkado Stamp-A-Ma-Jig masking tool to position Tilda just right on the oval frame. Tilda was colored with Copics and I added some Whimsy Stamps Flourishes around the parameter of the frame using ColorBox Chalk ink. I used a fun sketch from CLP for their Challenge #57 with a little twist of my own.
 
 
I added some fun new frilly flowers from Prima, Butterflies and rolled rose die cuts from Marianne Designs. The cute little chickadee ribbon is from SEI’s Chickadoo collection.
 
 
I used repeating elements from my the front for the inside of my card with blank space for a personal note or sentiment.
 
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
 
CLP Sketch Challenge – Sketch #57
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Lovely Hangler and Sweet Magnolia – Butterflies or things that flutter
