What's cooking! & Exciting news...

Happy Sunday everyone,

What a fantastic week it has been for me, I won 4 different challenges (posted on the top right of my blog) and to top it off, one of my cards will be featured on the back cover of Fall Magnolia advertisement for Simon Says Stamp , I am soooo... excited!


Now for my card today, I used the sketch over at Magnolia-licious July challenge and for my DP papers I picked them for the Challenge over at Just Magnolia which is "What's Cooking", and of course what better image then Kitchen Tilda.





I colored the image with my copics and added Glamour dust to her dress and head scarf. The dies I used are spellbinders Square and Fair Isle. The lace is from stock and my seam binding ribbon is from WOC.


I am also entering my card in the following challenges

Everybody arts - dots
Oldie but a goodie - Lace & Ribbon
Stamping Scrapping - Bling
Deep Ocean - Ribbon
Little Darlings - Button, brads, eyelets
