A Maggie at last!!

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I do hope each one of you took some moments to thank the Lord for this week today, and to ask for His Blessing on you, your loved ones and the entire world. Maybe while we're relaxing and having a good time with our family/ friends.. there is someone of our Blogging friends in another part of the world struggling for life or for safety. God be with you all.. wherever you are . x

Just a quick post to share with you this card. I had lots of releases and challenges this month, and I didn't have time to play with my Maggies for quite some time. Last week I had made these handmade flowers with the help of Rach's tutorial and didn't have the chance to use them. When I saw them, I immediately thought of vintage and Magnolia. So I combined these two with Friday's Sketcher sketch for this week, and Cupcake Craft Challenge.. which is distressing.

I used Distress Refillers for my entire colouring (and managed to spill quite a blob of Frayed Burlap on my image.. but I vanished it.. doesn't show, doesn't it? :))SSshh.. I am learning tricks from Harry potter himself! lol

Also distressed papers and background with Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap.

These are the scrunched flowers. I wished I had some Shimmerz glimmer spray, but they are quite lovely all the same. They are not perfect, but it's my first time I did them, so please be kind! :) I used Papermania Signature Regency papers. They coordinate perfectly.Then I added some ribbon and lace for vintage touch, more punched flowers, gold dewdrops and gold rub on sentiment. It came out quite classy don't you think? :)

I left the inside plain, at least I let the design of the paper show, and only added another rub on sentiment and pieces of lace in the corner. It's light coloured texture leaves space for writing on it directly. Have a happy week my friend, and hope to hear what you think of this creation. thank you for taking the time to let me share my work with you.
