It's also time for another Rop/ Bnw Challenge, and this one is special for me.. as it's our 38th chalenge.. and in two months time I will be 38 myself! ROFL :) Not a thing to be proud of usually, but age is a God given grace, so!!! :)
This time it's Anki's turn to host the challenge, and our wonderful, talented Anki wants to see : Gifts - gift bag, box, gift set ... whatever you think of when you hear those words :)
Fun!! I managed to do a Magnolia gift set.. I can never have enough of my Maggies.. too cute to be left uninked!! I used some scraps of Magnolia paper (although I can't get myself to use them for the insides.. too precious to be left hidden !! LOL
Tilda with Roses was coloured in Copics, and matted with white watercolour paper, which first was Distressed with Tattered Rose Distress ink, and then using Antique Linen I stamped a Grunge Stempelglede stamp on the opposite showing corners.
I used Magnolialicious Highlites sketch for May, and I will also enter the Just Magnolia challenge: which is One for the girls ;)
This is a detail of the colouring on Tilda, and you can see that I also added her a rhinestone earring.. cuuute!!
Rhinestones and Brad are Basic Grey, and together with the Magnolia large roses found on my project, are found at Roses on Paper, like most of the material I used on this card. I highlighted the materials I used from there with direct links, for your convienience, should you want to try them out yourself! They make everything soo much easier!! Yeah.. you "need" them, don't you? ;) Go and visit Summer's store. She just brorught some more yummy goodies is.. including the new Basic Grey paper packs! Yum!! :) You can also pre-order the next Magnolia Ink Magazine, that will come out in a few weeks' time.
Thet gorgeous sentiment Spellbinder's die- cut was sent to me by dearest Sheila, (thank you sweetie!), isn't it gorgeous? It gave the card the perfect elegant touch.
As for the gift bag I used the same image and flowers, but the papers I used are the same as the ones I used on the card's inside panels. I think they are Papermania, but I am not sure. On some of the photos they look as if they're pink, but IRL they are deep red, and match perfectly the red on the Magnolia paper.
I hope you like the set, and that you let Maggie know what you think of her. Do pop on our RopP/ BnW challenge blog, and see what the fantastic DT came up with. Please also help us welcome our new larger family, even though this challenge was too close for them to participate as DT members. Some of them may have made it.. we'll see :)
Huggies to all of you. I wish you a lovely week, filled with Peace, and may you also leave some time to appreciate all the Blessings with which you are surrounded. Spring helps us appreciate God's wonderful masterpieces, but also the people that we can appreciate all year through, and that we sometimes take forgranted. Each one is a blessing in disguise! Do appreciate what you are given.. and I will work on this as well!
Thanks for looking
