Finally a challenge card!

I have been so busy with the kids school stuff this week that I was behind with everything,but I made some of my DT cards last night so I had a little time to play today and make a challenge card at last.
I have combined 3 challenges with this one, because I know I won't manage to make a lot of challenge cards this week. The challenges are Just Magnolia which is So Charming - use charms, Daring Cardmakers -Blue and Green and Papertake Weekly - a sketch.

I have obviously followed the Papertake Weekly, which I have actually used 4 times this week but I had to give them to Liam's teachers on Friday before I got a chance to post them on here.
My Tilda image was a rak and I don't have any of the label nesties but Heather (Rica) very kindly cut some and sent them to me. I inked the edges of it with some blue ink and also inked around Tilda with the same ink.
I used 2 butterfly charms for the Just Magnolia challenge and my flowers are a mix of punched ones and Prima's from Aries Crafts.I was on their website yesterday and they have some gorgeous new Prima's in as well as all the others they usually stock. There really is loads to choose from at a very reasonable price and remember free delivery too! Also some lovely new backing papers and other new goodies too. So what you waiting for, go have a look and see for yourself.

Papers: K&Co- Wild Raspberry Collection, Basic Grey - Two Scoops collection
Image: Magnolia Tilda - RAK
Embelishments: Charms, chain, jump rings, brads and lace from stash. Punched flowers made with 5 Petal Stampin Up punch, Prima flowers from Aries Crafts

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather :)

Hugs Lora xx

it seems strange hearing you talk about the kids in school because it's summer here and school's out. hope you get more time to craft.

Hi Lora, This card is beautiful, i love the papers you have used and your flowers look gorgeous, i really must try and make more of my own flowers, they look so nice when they are coordinated like that. Not long now until the kids are all off school! xxx
