Time to relax xx

Well at last I'm back with a card I have been crafting but I can't show yet as its for a GDT spot!!

As always I'm back with a Magnolia creation I must admit I wasn't that fussed on these two images but once I'd seen your fab creations with them I just had to didn't I!!!! lol
I'm really please with my colouring it does look as if it's improving probably as I'm still off work and its the only thing I can do to keep my mind occupied!  As always I have coloured with pro markers and added glossy accents onto the bubbles!  What do you think to the wine cooler and glass just a superb addition for this relaxing lady!! 
These papers are a 12 x 12 pad from Tilda and are just lush and so pretty.
Picture of the bubbly with the added strawberry and a lovely prima pebble! Oh and look at these charms a mirror and hairdryer to pamper herself with after.
The sentiment is from "Blonde Moments" and I have stamped it onto a little journal tag that is part of the paper collection.  
A small collection of flowers which are from ever increasing flower stash.
Added a couple of different laces one which I have threaded ribbon through and added a small bow and a closer look at the papers where you can see I have distressed the edges and inked.

Side view of the little creation which I really am pleased with.

I am entering the following challenges:

Midweek Magnolia - Happy Birthday
Totally Tilda - Happy Birthday
Just Magnolia - Lace & DT Call (I'm going to be brave and give it a go!!)

Love &  Hugs Chanelle xxx
