Beautiful in Blue

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I can say all this sunshine is so awesome; I absolutely love it. I will show a sneak preview of my new room. The unveiling will be around November 20th once my shutters are installed. The photos are below.

The winner of my candy is Angel Whispers! Congratulations please contact me with your mailing address.

Now on to my card for our Midweek Magnolia's challenge glitter/lace/pearls. I chose Tilda in the Garden - how sweet is she? I colored her with Copic Markers. The dies I chose for my design were Go Create, La La Land Heart Banner, Magnolia Doo Hickey Heart Tag, Cherry Lynn Flourish and Butterfly dies. The floral paper is from Magnolia's Animal Collection, stripped blue paper is from Pion and the rest is from my stash. To embellish my card I used vintage white frantage, flower, pearls, tulle, lace and I inked the edges of the paper with pale blue Prima chalk ink.

Midweek Magnolia's 100th Celebration

I am so excited to be back! We are officially Florida residents. Our new house is great. Still more to do. My husband is too sweet. He is painting my craft room pink and laying down a wood floor. As soon as it is complete I will post some photos.

Needless to say my scrapping is a little scattered. I hope you will join us this week for our 100th Blog Celebration.  We have lots of great prizes and several of the DT are giving away candy.  Don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win my candy.

If you came from Gayle's lovely blog then you are on the right track!

I used a canvas heart which I stenciled with light modeling paste and the I used Bloom Sprays to add color to the heart.  I chose various stamps for the background and of course the main star is Bonny Tilda. I colored her with Copic Markers and used Frantage on her wings and on the canvas. The canvas was embellished with flowers, lace, decorative pins, metal key and tulle bow. The paper is from pion.

Now for my candy......

Good Luck!
