My Time to Craft Challenge - Here Come the Girls

Another week has passed me by and it's time for a new challenge at My Time to Craft . . .
this week the theme is "Here Come the Girls".

I've been so busy with card commissions lately that I've decided to work a little bit smarter and try to combine tasks.

Therefore this card is both my DT inspiration card over at MTTC and a commission for a work colleague's Mum.

The images are both Magnolia Tilda from the You Are So Special 2011 collection.  They are so adorable.  The cake is also a Magnolia stamp from a while ago now.

The were coloured with Copic markers.  I've glittered them up with Stickles Star Dust . . . just love this stuff.

The DP is from First Edition Paper "Desert Blooms" (gorgeous papers, a lot of them heavily glittered) and my usual favourite gold paper for matting and layering.

I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch "Scroll Heart" for the heart border and matted it onto the gold.  I added some self adhesive pearls for an extra bit of bling.

The inside is decorated to compliment the front.

The sentiment was made using gold peel offs and matting onto both mat gold and mirror gold card.

I also used another Martha Stewart punch "Floral Scroll" to make the edge around the image mat.

Well that's all from me today, why not try your luck in the challenge?

Thanks for visiting
