Feel free to use White and Skin colours too and Be sure to also use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation to be in with a chance of winning the monthly prize, we cant wait to see your creations. Be sure to check out the other DT's fabulous creations.

I really enjoyed this one - fabulous colours, although I did boob - I was under the impression is sould be pink, cream and brown not pink yellow and brown - oops!!
My excuse is cream is a very pale yellow - that should do it!!!
The Double Dutch challenge is Pink, brown and Cream so I'm covered for that.
(I'm now in Germany Erica so please don't shout at me so loud - I'll hear you!!)
The Magnolia monthly challenge is based on the amazing 3D tutorial that the uber talented Debby Yates of A Scrap Journey did. I used Alva with flower, coloured her with Copics and gave her four hats, three faces, two dresses, three frills on her dress, to sets of boot, three arma and four flowers. Writing that down made me realize why it took me so long (lol). When I use this technique I use a ball point tool on the reverse of the element to give it more shape and form, consequently this makes it difficult to photgraph as the sides of each element are glued to the side of the one underneath leaving the middle part 3D'd. I think you can just aout see this is the lousy photograph in the middle.
(NB to self - for heaven's sake get yourself a new camera)

Stamp - Mangnolia - Alva with flower
Papers -Basic Grey - Eva
Tools - EK Success corner/border punch : Leone Em Ash branch punch
Embellishments - Flowers - Hobbycraft & Carnmeal cottage : Pears branch - Craft Creations : stick pin & beads from stash

Right - I'm off now to try and locate some craft shops in the area - not very hopeful, be back later to post a couple of awards and maybe another card - wish me luck on my search.

No money for a new camera with all these cute stamps a gal needs, huh? Hope you find some great craft shops!! Speaking of awards, I left one on my blog for you and don't think I ever mentioned it to you... I am a horrible award-passer-outer :(

Great card, the image looks fantastic, the whole card is incredible actually, love those pearl clusters and your "pastel" yellow.
Take Care,
