Shabby Chic Magnolia Baby

Hi guys, I've been crafting today :) I have had to make a wedding card for an order (will share that one with you a little later) and I have had this sweet baby coloured for weeks!!

I am loving playing with my crackle paint - among other things my DD bought for me when she won the Simon Says Stamp voucher.. I must get her to make some things with the stamps she got for herself and share them all for you here.

See my new Magnolia DooHickey Butterfly?? Isn't it the sweetest... and the most tedious thing to get out of the die :P I used a needle to flick all the tiny holes out before taking it out of the die. Well worth the time and patience. The satin looks *dirty* in this photo.. but I assure you it's nice and clean looking IRL!
I'd like to enter the following challenges - Just Magnolia : Sketch, A Spoon Full of Sugar : Things with Wings, Papertake Weekly :Pale, Pretty Pastels & Scrapbooking Allsorts Gallery Challenge - May: Wings

So, this is a new favourite card for me, the butterfly die, my favourite square doilies that I can no longer get :( and of course this gorgeous baby stamp. Thank so much for stopping by today xx
