British Summertime

I thought the sketch on Just Magnolia was ideal for the use of my punch round the page but to be honest not sure if it works. Another of my Easter Magnolia but this Tilda will work all the year round. Whoops just noticed that I had dotted the flowers in her basket with a white pen.
The sentiment is Jane Gill set from Woodware and I've used two of them to fit in the Stampin Up punch and I've put tiny gems on some of the flowers. Papers are Cosmo Cricket, possibly Material Girl.

I've been sent this fab award from Sally all the way over in Canada. Thanks Sally.

It official we are now in British Summer Time and I've lost an hour in bed and what are the BBC Weather forcasting. I almost can't bring myself to write it but it begins with an S and ends with a W with NO in between!
edited- to sort out my bad spelling.

Oh Debbie, your card makes a statement here...it says "beautiful" in the highest volumes! Tilda is stunning and the dimension and fabulous details compliment each other perfectly!
I have my fingers crossed for you, and hopefully "old Man Winter" will feel my vibes and simply disappear!!!
Have a great day:)

Karen said...

I think that the punch fits well with the card. I think it's because you used circles and flowers in one card? Love the flowers on the board! And love the 3D-effect. Nice card!
Hugs,
Karen.
