ROP DT: Love is...

... KIND!!

That's the theme of this Magnolia card that I started and finished today. It is an easel card, using this gorgeous Fairytale Tilda stamp from the Fairytale collection. A Stamp that you can find at Roses on Paper, together with lots of the latest Magnolia stamps and other goodies.. including Magnolia flowers, some of which you can also see on this card. At the moment there is the last stmp in stock from this particular image, but if that is gone when you go to purchase it, do drop a line to Summer, and I'm sure she'll help you out!! Summer is so kind and helpful!!

I had so much fun putting together this card, a card which I made with a touch of Scandinavian style (not the papers though)

I made this card for quite some lovely challenges:

Just Magnolia Monthly Special: Adding pleated lace to an image or DP
Magnolialicious Birthday Bash: Easel card (and this stamp was inked for the first time!)
Friday Sketchers: sketch used
Crazy 4 Challenges: Create PLEATS
Colour Create: Baby Pink and Pastel Blue

Detail of the bow and charm.. oops while handling the card I bended the leaves lol

For this gorgeous girl I used Blueberry Hill papermania paper
Distress ink and watercolour paper
Magnolia flowers and rose buds from stash
Magnolia foliage
a hat pin
Lots of crystal, Turquoise and Stardust Stickles
ribbon and heart charm from stash
Dewdrops and self adhesive rhinestones
half pearls and sentiments

All papers are distressed with Worn Lipstick (the pink)and Faded Jeans (the blue)
This is how I dcorated the inside. I used a tag, which I diestressed and mounted for an anchor, so that the esel card can stand. I decorated with flowers, and punched ones as well, like the ones I did on the main panel. The half doily lace behind the tag was given distress ink and pearl glimmer mist generous treatment. It doesn't really show in the photos, but it glimmers alright!! :)

My flower treatment :)

Finally I added faux stitching, as my mini machine is broken at the mo!! :0)

Have a stupendous weekend, and a happy long weekend to us Maltese!
Blessings and smiles.

Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you'll let me know what you think of this card, especially of the particular style with which I did the card. Do you like it? Should I do this kind of card agian?? I would like to know, and my Maggie too!!! :)

Take care xx
