You have till the 6th September to enter your creation.
Now let's talk about my card.
I have used Tilda with Ladybug for my card. I love this stamp, and I'm sorry that lately I have neglected my Maggies, as I am focusing more on the new Belles ' n Whistles and Club Anya stamps
But these Maggies are always so cute, aren't they?
I plucked up courage again and coloured her with my Copics :)
I hope that I am improving a bit.. I didn't get much tips last time I asked, so I have to try and do better myself I think! lol I used mostly my reds and Blue Greens this time. It isn't that bad I think.. but still not perfect :) Ahh I am always so fussy abour colouring!! I don't change :)
As for papers I used Basic Grey's June Bug ( lovely pack this one, especially those dotted papers, love the rich olour and distressed feel.) On the inside I also used a matching brad with a ladybug on :) so cute!
I went for the Just Magnolia sketch challenge this time, it was a lovely sketch, and I found some papers from the HOTP Papers, Earth Palette whose green matched the Basic Grey's so I used on of them for the circle on the bottom left, and I used one of the sentiment: "kindness" ,that was part of the pack. As you can see, I cut my circle with the nesties, and then I put it through my Big Shot with an ebossing folder. I made it the other way round, by mistake, but I think it looks cool like that. I like it better :)
Finally I added rhinestones, buttons and some Papermania (cream) and Prima flower. On top I embellished with the red sequin and rose star. I used my lovely branch punch for the outside. I love this punch :)

On the inside, as you can see I used more punches. I used the Martha Doily lace punch (yes I am still using iteven if it broken, couldn't part! lol). I added lace, and used my mini sewing machine around the panels. Then I added that cute vellum envelope. That is also a part of the HOTP Cardmaker Pack.
I stamped that diamond-shaped flourish stamp, and added mini rhinestones to add some shine. For the inside I printed a sentiment, which I distressed with Distress Inks, and stamped also with the flourish stamp.. also using the same distress Ink: aged Mahogany. I matted it , but before, I used a Fiskars corner punch to decorate the corners.
Dewdrops, flowers, faux stitching on the jotting panel and a small ladybug added for the final touch. This card took me quite some time, but I think it was worthed.
I wish you a lovely week, filled with lasting Peace and Happinees, and I hope that you will also make other people smile with your lovely creations.
