MDU, Everybody Art Challenge and Just Magnolia

I've managed a challenge card at last. I started this last Sunday (it's been another one of those week's) and am just about in time to post it before it's too late for Magnolia Down Under who want an easel card, so this week do Everybody Art Challenge. One blessing about being so late is I'm now early for Just Magnolia who have a Birthday card as their challenge. I made this card for my daughter who's birthday is the beginning of March.


I coloured Tilda with Copics, used distress inks around the edges and cut it with a Spellbinders labels die. The papers are a download, the leaves cut with the Sizzix leaf and branch die, the sentiment from WOJ is in a SU frame, the pearl brads and lace from Quixotic paperie and the rest from stash. Is there anything about this card that makes you think I love my lace and pearls? 
I made one of my enveloboxes (see link in sidebar) for this card and had mountains of stuff to decorate it, then thought - don't be stupid, if I put all that on, I'll have to make a box to put the box in!!!  So - I've kept it pretty simple, it looks a little bare to me and I think I will do some stamping or inking around the edges next time.

The rear of the envelobox

The font of the box


Now a final photograph entitled "Look who's sulking!!" I shouted at him for sitting in front of the TV screen so he went and sat on my sofa, face to the corner. I suspect his sulking won't last beyond the next meal time - tee-hee!!.

Wow!!! *jaw hitting floor*

This is absolutely stunning Heather. Love, love, love that stamp (have her ordered!!) Wonderful distressing and the detailing is breathtaking!! I've yet to try one of the enveloboxes, yours is just gorgeous!!

LOL at the cat!! My Toots (she started out as sooty because she's black) hides under the table if I give out to her, and peeks out every few seconds. They are such funny creatures.

Have a great weekend
