Magical Monday at TMITA/PCC



Hi Blogger's,

Can you believe it's Monday again.......the weeks seem to fly past! There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes is here with another challenge using any of Nina's images to make a card. Selma's turn to host this one and she would like to see some 3D flowers used on the card.

I've used Nina's watering can filled with flowers as a Spring theme - well, Spring for most of you Autumn here but we don't want to think about that just yet!!!

I've kept this card very simple, plain white base card with an embossed frame scored using my ScorPal. A Spellbinders blossom die cut the bright green mat for the image which was cut using a circle die. Copics coloured this image - so quick and easy.

My flowers were made using the same blossom die in the two smallest sizes, cut from orange card scraps. the lavender centres are some pre - made flowers from my stash. I cut the blossoms then scrunch them up a little before layering with a silver brad to hold the layers together. I've also added the punched green swirl.

The sentiment is from the Annabelle Stamps set 'Flowers With Love'.

This card is going into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Make your own flowers.
Totally Paper Crafts - Let's go Digital .

Hope you can play along with us this week, as always Nina has a prize for the randomly picked winner...... it's one of my favourite images.
Hope you'll check out the designers cards you're sure to be inspired. Go welcome Jessie who joins us for the month of April all the way from Ireland. Her link is added to the TMITA dt listing on the left.

Here's this weeks prize.......
Until next time..............
