Springtime Green

G’day and welcome J

Today’s make is my first ever make with a Magnolia stamp… I happened upon a Christmas magazine while at the shops and it had a Christmas Tilda with Puppy on the front so happy Newsagent and happy me! Hehe  Now on stamping her I realized she loans herself to all year so here she is.

This is one more of the Mad March birthdays down… lots more to go!

A few challenges in this card… in no particular order… well ok… in the order they are written down on my notepad…

Cupcake Craft Challenge… Sparkle… beautiful sparkly bella brad on that flower just finishes it off nicely!
The Crafting Café… favourite colour… Green!  The colour of my garden J
Lej Designs Challenge blog… Spring… Real Spring to me was when I was in England… the white snow would melt and vibrant green shoots would burst out of the thaw with tenacity and throw out delicate flowers.
Flourishes .org has a challenge of using Cardboard which worked brilliantly to give my leaves texture and add interest.  I will use your stamps when I can manage to buy one :-)
CardMakingMamas have a challenge of using Green…. I think I might have covered that one!
Emmas Cards UK has a challenge of vintage… now I am hoping this is vintage enough as it all reminds me of old times (and Aunty Nora with her doilies)…

All cardstock/paper/doilies right from my stash!
Stamps: Magnolia Christmas Tilda with Puppy; “Happy Birthday” stamp from Papercraft Inspirations stamps Issue 72.
Flower: Stampin’ Up! Punches.

Leaves: Create-a-flower Cuttlebug die and Spellbinders leaves.

Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle.
Brad:  Bella!
Inks: Memento “New Sprout” and “Pear Tart”; Black ink – Memories Dye inkpad.
