Midweek Magnolia have a DT call!!

Well I have to have a go don't I!!!

I have just been looking at the entries though and there are some fabulous ladies out there trying out for this call so I have everything crossed but in the end what will be will be will just have to keep trying!!

I had a lazy day yesterday and this is the only card I actually put together but I had so much fun.
I just love this design of card with the acetate in I really think its gives such a great look.
After I had cut all my papers I was actually devastated to realise I didn't have a bride and groom!!!! Why!!! 

I did realise after I had had a strop that I had this old Magnolia couple which is adorable anyway so I quickly calmed down. As always my images are coloured with pro markers.
A sentiment stamp that I purchase last year from the Craft Box when Rochelle was getting married and look I have sat patiently cutting out these beautiful flowers it did take a while but I always find it so relaxing.  As you can see I have used lots of stickles and liquid pearls.
My new church stamp which luckily came in the post yesterday and looks so perfect especially with the flourish around the edges.  Cut out the circles to match the front and added lots of stickles. 
Here is a closer look at my wonderful flowers really frame the circle on the front so perfectly.
All of the papers are from various ranges of Magnolia and on the back I have used a congratulations sentiment on a small section of a magnolia cake stamp.

The challenges I am entering are:

Midweek Magnolia - Romantic/Chic and DT Call
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Hip to be square
Magnolia-licious - Photo Inspirations (used the grey/blues of the eyeshadow)
Moving along with the times - Celebration (no Birthday)
Zoe Bunny - Anything Goes

We well my DH has cut the lawns again today it was such hard work just watching so now I'm going to look through the blogs and leave some comments.

We don't have Summer tonight as they are all off to their Cousins wedding (Ex Husbands family) which the above card is for them to take so will have plenty of free time tonight and tomorrow to craft!

Have a fab weekend.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xx
