Some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sewing machine charm, twine

Vintage/Shabby Chic

Hello, I had been very lucky to be chosen as a Guest Designer for the Fashionista Challenge Blog, Thanks girls!  And then the big news, Rina asked if I would like to be a Fashionista DT member, well of course I said YES, how exciting.... Yay!!! Thankyou Rina for asking me to join you.
 Their current challenge is Vintage and/or Shabby Chic.
This is the card I made using Magnolia's 'Cuddly Siblings' stamp and Stempelglede text stamp.
Paper is Basic Grey, Capella and I've inked the edges. It was lots of fun to make and I love how the flowers look and to top it off my frantage sets arrived in time to have a play.
I will have to learn not to be too heavy handed with it though!
Cheesecloth and most flowers are from The Ribbon Girl. Chipboard clock is made by Scrapmatts.
Inside the shaker part on the card I have used Martha Stewart white gold metallic glass microbeads.
I checked out the following challenges when creating this card and would like to enter,
Papertake Weekly - Sketchie free for all  (I used an oldie, sketch#49)
Stampin for the weekend - Die cuts and/or punches
City Crafter Challenge  - Colour combo

Hope you like it and have a great day.

Shaker card

Hi to you all
It's a new challenge over at Simply Magnolia today and the challenge is to create a shaker card.
We are also being sponsored by Scrapbooking Allsorts. Make sure you see what
the DT have created too, they are so clever!
 I only made this card this afternoon, (talk about leaving it to the last minute) I already had my image coloured and was very pleased when I found the sketch at Magnolia Down Under challenges. It suited what I had in mind and left plenty of room for embellishing, it probably helped to get my card completed quicker too as I had a direction!
I used my copics and the following goodies,
Stamp - Tilda with Wedding Gifts and Stamp It text 'Circle for you'
Paper - Magnolia and also decorated with frantage.
Dies - Spellbinders Oval, Floral Oval, Labels Twenty Two
Magnolia Memory tag,  Bloomy tag and Romantic lace.
Pearl beading, lace and charm I purchased from The Ribbon Girl.

I am entering the following challenges,
Crafty Catz - Inspired by a Song (Happy Birthday)
I'm not very creative, I know.
Allsorts Challenge - Add some Sparkle
Midweek Magnolias - Lovely Lace
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge - Pearls and Lace
