CCT & Just Magnolia

I have managed to make 1 card to combine 2 challenges today & those that know me well will know how much I have struggled with the Just Magnolia challenge. This week they had a colour theme which is Pink & Green. I can do girlie, just not Pink. But I have persevered & combining it with CCT's challenge of Get Edgy I think I have succeeded.Unfortunately the light here isn't very good today but I think you can pretty much see the colours. So to Get Edgy you had to tear, distress or sew the edges of your card. Well I sewed the edges of my centre panel ok, do you think I can get away with it...... I kept the card fairly simple using an A6 card & layering it with Urban Lilly's Sushi Stripe. The green paper is from my stash. I stitched round the edge of the centre panel using Ann's Paper Art pattern #a393 using green & dusty pink threads. I added irridescent beads in the centre of the flowers. These are both available from Sam. I used Flower Garland in Hair Tilda & coloured in using my usual pens. I then layered her onto the card using foam pads. On the inside of the card I used a 1cm strip of the green paper & created a flower by using my Woodware flower punch a punched a flower out of the sushi stripe paper, added a Prima Painterly Petal & a Dovecraft jewelled charm. The right side of the card is again the green paper from my stash & a scalloped circle cut with a Woodware punch.

Pens Used
Marvy Le Plume II: 16, 18, 63, 72, 76, &102
Whispers Dusty Pink
