27th Apr Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl ~ Buttons & Bows

Good morning
Today is the Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl and the theme this month is
Buttons & Bows

I used these lovely Ribbon Girl goodies
45mm 'Blanche' Embroidered Net Lace, Sea Moss Seam Binding, 3mm Ivory Pearl String, 10 & 20mm Ivory Open Roses, White Chrysanthemum, Rose Buds, Wooden Heart Button, Green Hemp Twine and Stickles Stardust
I used Pion paper, stencilled the brick wall down the side, added a paper doily and basket of eggs. 
A few people asked about the eggs, they are not chocolate eggs they are just small embellishments for cards, my daughter sent them to me from America, I think she got them from Hobby Lobby.

Have fun making those Magnolia cards, good luck and enjoy your Sunday.

Best Times

Thought I would share a scrapbook page with you today, this is my youngest son Kieran and myself on the way to Jamestown, he's like his mum doesn't like having a photo taken but I do love this one. 
I used Maja Design papers, I did some stencilling, stamping and throwing a bit of ink about and I think it worked. I got my inspiration from the wonderfully talented Gabrielle Pollacco.
I added a little bottle of seashells, 
the roses, cheesecloth, lace, button twine, key charm & the large burlap flower from The Ribbon Girl
Hope you like it :)

Using Vellum

Hello, I just wanted to share a card I made using vellum sewn onto white card, this vellum is so pretty I felt it didn't need much else, so I stamped the greeting 'Remember this moment'
in embossed gold and added White Satin Ribbon, Clear Crystal Hearts & Large Daisies from The Ribbon Girl. 
Hope you like it, thank you for stopping by.
