MDUC gets girly with Tilda's Love-trellis

Hello lovely Blogger Buddies,
I hope your weekend is going by fabulously!!
It's Sunday in Australia and that means it's time for a new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under, which is triple the fun, use our sketch, use some orange and make it girly!!

This week, yes WEEK, we are sponsered by The Cutting Cafe, who will be providing our winner with 3 sets of their choice, woohoo!!! They were even kind enough to give us girlies at Magnolia Down Under a few items to tinker with, unfortunately, I have not even one drop of ink left in my printer (see purple lady below for proof, lol) but I look forward to using our samples in the future :)

Additionally, there have been a few changes over at MDUC. We have had the great pleasure of working with Norma and Sue over the past few months, and although it will be sad to see them go, like really really sad, we have a few new uber-talented guests that will be joining us for the next 6 months, Chelsea, Jane and present-guest designer Frantastic will be staying with us for another 6 months as well. Welcome Aboard ladies, your work is astounding!! Also, Magnolia Down Under will be reverting back to weekly challenges starting now!! So you will see us again with a new challenge and a new chance at winning a scrumdiddily-umptious prize next Sunday!!! Is that everything? Geez, I hope so!!

I've listed all the ingredients to this card below in an attempt to cut down on the waffling, but what that list cant tell you is that I masked several different swirls off to make the flourish on my paper as well as several heart images. The hearts were from the fabulous Sue Drees, which I covered in Distress Crackle paint, then distressed in Vintage Photo and topped off with a smidge of Stardust Stickles, yummy!!

Of course, I have a few other challenges I'll be popping this in at, ABC Challenges, M is for Masking,Fussy and Fancy is having a heart challenge, I have not joined in there before but I think their DT is fab, so here I come!!! Just Magnolia is having a hearts and flowers challenge, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge wants to see hearts too, and over at The Pink Elephant they want to see polka dots, pink, and a bow!! y original DP was a pinky paislee cutie but I found the pink in Tildas dress got lost in it, so I swapped it out, there's still plenty of pink though, phew!!

The Goods:

Mediums: Ranger Distress Inks, Archival Ink, StarDust Stickles, Rock Candy, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Candlelight
Stamps: Tilda with rice hearts, Tilda blowing hearts, Inkadinkado flourish clear set, stampendous heart
Papers: Bazzill Cardstock, Recollections Fall 2009
Artillery: Martha Stewart punches: doily, twig and maple leaf, ek Success fern, sandpaper and scissors for distressing
Other: heart doily, mini roses, gardenias, lace and rickrack

Welp, thanks for stopping by!!
I hope you will have a chance to swing by

Aw, isn't she darling! Stephanie, you put so much into each card, it's hard to look at it and appreciate it without taking the time to check every inch out. And it just would not be a Stephanie creation without those beautiful flowers. All that glittery goodness is wonderful. Just a fabulous creation.
