Good Morning Everyone,
Welcome to this weeks Magnolia DownUnder Challenge! This week we have a different challenge for you, we'd like to see you reduce, reuse or recycle some items on your card or project. The things that may otherwise be thrown out...
Now I must admit I think I overthought this week's challenge! I started two different projects before settling on this card. I've finally gone with the KISS method - as in Keep It Simple Silly :)
I have reused or recycled the buttons in the centre of my flowers. My Grandmother passed away a couple of years ago and these buttons were part of a very large stash she kept in her sewing cabinet. I remember both of my Grandmothers having tins of buttons that I'd like to explore as a child. I can only assume that living in harsher times it was the done thing to remove them from old clothing for reuse!
Here's a closer look at them - plain but pretty:-
This is the first time I've used this cute baby Tilda stamp and I'm going to enter the card over at Totally Tilda Challenge too - the theme being Baby Baby. (Edit - How happy am I - this card won the Baby Baby Challenge!)
Tilda is coloured with copics and has a touch of Stickles on her wings. The polka dot paper is from Marianne Design and the Green Floral is from the Prima Annalee paper pad. I've also used the a paper doily with the edges inked in green, pearls and sewing and this cute little pearl pin that looks a little like a Nappy Pin - well that was the idea anyway :) The rose lace is from my local patchwork store.
I'm also entering my card into the CES Challenge - Angels and Fairies because this Sleeping Baby Tilda certainly looks like an Angel! Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is Bingo and I've scored a Horizontal Line here with Buttons, Flowers and Glitter/Glimmer! Stamp Something would like Something Cute and I think Tilda should qualify for that.
