Celebrate - Cheery Lynn Designs



Hi and Good Morning :)

Our new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs is 'Celebrate', so what better excuse do you need to create something beautiful for the special people and times in your life.  As always the winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store and over the next few weeks were are looking for guest designers too, with a very generous store credit to get you started!
 
Now, the DT at Cheery Lynn were presented with some wonderful Magnolia goodies recently, and I just couldnt wait to use this little sweetie! :)  I used a 6 x 6 blank card base, and stitched Magnolia papers onto white bazzil cardstock, and then set about my favourite part of card-making - die cutting!
 
I added the Celtic Heart and Fanciful Flourish to the base of the card, and then cut 2 strips of the Anastasia Lace Border layering them together and topping off with some pale blue ribbon.  I cut the really gorgeous Kiwi Spirit Doily (this matches the Anastasia border perfectly) and added my image slightly off centre.  The flowers were made from the Cutie Fringe borders, 2, 3 and 4 and I dipped these in some glitter for a bit of sparkle.   I decorated the border with the Two of Hearts and a butterfly, and I added some tiny forget-me-not type flowers to the flourish. 
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
B188 - Embellishment #2 - Tiny blue forget-me-not type flowers
 
I hope you find time to join in this week, and I look forward to seeing more gorgeous entries!  Dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.

I wish to enter this card in the below competitions:

The little forget-me-nots in the flourish are a lovely touch & I love the way you brought out the tiny bit of bluey green from the patterned paper matting below your image with those green coloured stems for Tilda's flowers & als the greenish tinges of glitter that are visible on those pompom flowers.
