Spring Beauty......


Good morning folks and Happy Friday..... yay, nearly the weekend already ;o)

I made a card using this sweet Magnolia image again..... defo my fave one from the latest collection..... that bunny is adorable even if he/she does look a little sad, lol!


I used more papers from the Prima Botanicals collection as I love the understated nature of them and they're gorgeous for creating a shabby chic theme. Those little stamped leaves are from a new Marianne stamp range I bought which also has some lovely floral designs. The flowers are Prima and the sentiment is Melissa Frances, plus I stamped out a Tim Holtz 'Postcard' stamp too.

I'm entering the following challenges:

Shabby Tea Room - Doilies/Lace

7 Kids - Easter/Spring

ASFOS - All Creatures Great and Small

Tip Top Tuesday - Spring Has Sprung

Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge - Pink and Green

Creative Card Crew - Spring


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Tara, a gorgeous card! I love this Tilda. Oh yes, she looks adorable for sure, but I do think the bunny looks like he’s resigned to being hugged and cuddled to death...LOL. Love your flower arrangement—a different oneI haven’t seen before. The embossing looks like peanut shells to me…LOL. Love those ferns. Loving the way you’ve distressed the paper edges. Terrific job on the card.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.
Hugs,
Norma

Hi T, hope you're well and surviving the holidays :)! I love your card and I agree this Tilda is so cute, shame she's squeezing the life out of the poor bunny, may be that's why he's sad :D. The papers are gorgeous I agree and your design and colouring are so beautiful. Take care and Happy Easter. Hugs, Chris xx
