Today I'm inviting you to take a look at a card and some blogcandy I won. I made the card for a lot of challenges.
I really want a lighttent and found an instruction on how to build your own which I've been wanting to try forever now. The most expensive part of that though is the lightbulb that gives daylight. The bulb itself costs around $30! Yikes, but now I know what to wish for for my birthday. If you know anywhere cheaper I can get it on the net, let me know. I think it makes such a difference with good photos and it would be great to be able to photograph at any hour of the day.
Here are the challenges I'm entering with this card:
Magnolia stamp lovers - sketch
A spoon full of sugar - anything you like
Magnolia down under - Valentines
Magnolia-licious highlights - pretty in pink
ABC challenge - masking
Stamp with Sarah Kay - Love/Valentine's
Die cuts r us - ribbon
I had a couple of other in mind while doing this card, but I missed the deadline.
I used two magnolia stamps - the girl and the branch. I actually won the branch stamp in a candy and thought I'd try masking this time. I really like the paper and tried to use the decorations by applying glitter, bling and dimensional glaze to make them stand out more. I used little letterstickers to spell "be mine" and two different ribbons to make the lines. I also used a decorative punch I bought the other day. Thought the card looked to plain otherwise. It still looks like its missing something, but at least it's a little better now.
And finally - here's the lovely first prize candy I won from Jo. She has designed the asiainspired stamps herself for stamp attack. I really liked the other stamps aswell and the big scrolly one is fab! Can't wait to start using them. She also sent a keychain she made and a beautiful box. Thanks a lot for the goodies Jo!
