Fun and Exciting news!!


Hi everyone! I hope you're having a fabulous week! I'm really excited as I've been invited to join Sandie and the amazingly talented team over at Paperplay Challenges, and this is my first card for them! Today's challenge, "At The Beach", was chosen by our wonderful Mandy and is being sponsored by...wait for it....Just Inklined!!! I love that company!! Sure wish I had a chance to win! LOL! Anyway, I'm super happy to join the talented team of designers at Paperplay!  


For my card, I used one of my brand new images from the Sweet Rainbow collection from Magnolia-licious. She's #353 Sweetie Tilda, and they named her appropriately as she is indeed a sweetie!  I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with Copic markers. Sorry I don't have the list of markers I used on this one. I also used the background stamp #655 Romantic sunset. Both of these images are in stock right now over at Magnolia-licious!  The DP is from Nitwit Collections Summer Splash, and it's matted with Bazzill cardstock. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ticket is from a set from Whimsy, and the yummy ribbon is from Stamp and Create.


So that's it for my card. I hope you pop over to Paperplay Challenges and check out all the lovely pojects from the rest of the design team. Then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! You might get lucky and win a voucher to Just Inklined!! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
