Hi All
I hope you all had a fab christmas and santa was good to you!
Just a very quickie today I wanted to catch the  Just magnolia challenge!
This was one of those cards that in theory was fantastic!! it just didn't seem to translate to a card somehow :( and then to add insult to injury the photo seriously sucks!! Lol!! I will try to find 5minutes of daylight tomorrow and take another pic for you!!
I have used Tilda loves flowers from the latest sweet crazy love collection! another great release from magnolia!! the papers are Stamin' up. and I have coloured with my copics the flowers and corner are WOC, I airbrushed the blue roses a little to  make them blend better!

Just magnolia - white and one colour
My mums craft shop - anything goes
simon says stamp - anything goes
Charisma card challenge - anything goes
Well thanks for popping by! if I don't see you before have a happy new year!!

Well onto this fortnights challenge over at Totally Tilda, We would like to see your creations featuring white on white!! this is a really strict challenge, there can be no colour at all apart from skin and hair!! not even shading!!! I know!!!!.. I thought OMG when I saw it too!! .....But... I loved it!!!
Right then so apart from hair and skin, as I have mentioned there must be NO colouring at all, we would like to see on your creation however, dry embossing and glitter!!
Here is my attempt!
Hmmm turned out better than I expected!! infact I really like it!!! not often I say that!!
Well the image is of course magnolia tilda from the new sweet christmas dreams collection, the colouring (such as it is) is copics, embossing folder is a cuttlebug one, add a marrianne die poinsettia and a do-hickey fence some pearls and Muslin oodles of glitter and a pinch of flock and Bobs your uncle!!
