The day has arrived for my First DT Post for Midweek Magnoliga's xxx

OMG I'm officially a Midweek Magnolia girl and here to prove it is my first DT creation.

MY word I was so excited and a little worried when I added my card as I'm so not computer literate and didn't want to end up deleting or publishing the post. lol

Well this week the theme is Recipe - 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons and one Ribbon and we all get to play this week before we go into our teams.
This is my inspiration for you Tilda with Birdcage isn't she just so perfect and as always she is coloured with pro markers.

Check out this yummy paper and I still have half a sheet left with the gorgeous fairy to play with later.  You can see my one Ribbon here on top of the Marianne birdcage which is another lucky find in my stash.

Three flowers which have been cut with my new spellbinders dies and you can see I actually got out my needle and sewed the lace for the perfect place to put these 2 yummy Crystal buttons the third flower I have added a pearl brad so that it all blends perfectly. Also added green foliage which is another fab punch from L-Em (again purchased from The Craft Den along with my new spellbinder die)

Another metal corner as I love these adds that little bit of interest and I have cut out a butterfly from the paper.
 A better view of the paper which is Prima from the Fairy Belle Collection called "La Spa" just jam packed with beautiful detail there is even a trellis background where I have added liquid pearl to the center of each join you really can't see much as I added it before all the detail but its there and looks fab.

 Last picture is a side view where you can see the dimension of all the details I have added and the Sentiment stamp from Whimsy to finish it off. (Prima Paper, Ribbon and Sentiment stamp from the Craft Box)

Best wishes Kym xxx PS Sorry I haven't posted much. Had dental surgery on Tuesday - not at all nice - still in pain/can't talk much as yet (whoopee say my family!!)/can't each much but I'll get there. Monday sees the first anniversary of my mum's death so things aren't so good. Take care, see you around in Blogland.
