Natural Magnolia Wedding

Hey guys.. once again it's been a few days since my last post... you'll be happy to know that we WERE NOT FLOGGED in netball on Saturday.. we lost by 6! Argh.. so close. I also did have to buy some cooking goodies at the Chef's Toolbox party, now I'm a bit of a sceptic and not really the person you want to invite to a party plan party to boost your sales, I have no problem attending then buying NOTHING if I don't need to. But we do need a new knife and fry pan.. so I got both in a bundle pack - had better be good! Way dearer than the Magnolia Stamp Club for a whole year - what was I thinking? :)

Anyways, here's my card for you... not a scrap of DP in sight!!
I glimmer misted the card itself, chalked one of the doilies to match my image (which most of you will know I colour ONLY with CHALKS). I added some crochet lace, some cotton string/thread, the bow/heart stamp is the Magnolia Elegant Heart Banner - missing the banner :)

See the text? That's my latest toy.. a Quickutz Alphabet die.. this is the 'Chandelier' one.. and although it is a little long for the Cuttlebug, I've managed just fine! You'll be seeing at lot more cards with 'words' LOL

Here's the list of challenges... a few called for 'Stitching' so I doodled some faux stitches with a Gold Spica pen - I really need a sewing machine!
Allsorts Challenge - Free & Easy July
Just Magnolia - Anything & Opt Extra - Shabby
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Stitch in Time
Paper Sundaes - Stitching
Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes

Wow! That's the most challenges I've managed for a while :)
