Cute Card Thursday "soft furnishings" Challenge 23 and Trina's Blog Candy Sketch

This Magnolia - Tingla sitting stamp couldn't stay in it's wrapping much longer. I've combined this card with two challenges. Over at CCT you can make a card using anything resembling soft furnishings i.e stitching, laces, buttons, crotchet. Here's my contribution. And at Trina's Timeless Treasures there is a blog candy sketch which I've managed to do as well in this card. She is giving away a massive blog candy.

Compared to some of my other cards I've gone a bit pastely with this one, much softer I think. The stripey pink backing paper is from QVC, Lilac paper from own stash. Machine stitched all the way round, accented papers with gold pen. The lilac, lacey ribbon was kindly given to me some time ago by a relative ( it's pretty, i've used it on other cards in the past) sentiment is raised with foam pads, buttons from create & craft, crotchet flower which arrived from a win together with the stamp. I've used Stazon which I managed to get into town for for the image, watercolourd, added crystal dust on her wings and Anita's 3-D clear gloss finish on her soother which you can't see on the picture too well. Raised the image with foam pads. I think that's everything.

That's all for now.... Is it lovely jubbly or not?
