Bling it on! Magnolia Down Under Challenge

This is really not what I am supposed to be doing tonight, I am on official Maid of Honour duties tonight as it is my bestie's hens night tomorrow night, so I have been busy cooking, making jelly shots, sewing a "not too trashy" veil etc, but in between all of that I managed finally to play along with another Magnolia Down Under challenge, and this one is right up my alley! Bling it on! I love bling! I have to say that this was not the card I had in mind when I started out, but it turned out pretty cute in the end!It was VERY hard to get a photo with all of those silver stars but in the end I got one that wasn't too reflective. I got to practise some braying, and I got to use my brushed silver card stock for the very first time, as well as use up a bunch of stars I have had since I very first started card making! So between this and my other duties, I feel it has been a very productive night! Hope you have a great weekend!

Really cute Leonie - great brayered background! Love all the stars! Must be the night for jelly shots - there's a heap at my place too - LOL

WOW...Leonie this card is amazing! I love all the bling and the stars everything about it. Usually the cards that weren't even what we were thinking of are the best cards we'll ever make :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to join in at Magnolia Down Under Challenges.

Leonie, This card is great! I love these stamps! It has been snowing for 24 hours and I have 12" at least. Oh well, that is spring in Colorado! Anyway, with no one at home I do not have to be busy if I do not want to. Lucky me, I guess! The challenge colors were not me, but I did it anyway. I may have to find another challenge, the colors keep repeating themselves. Have a fun weekend. Sylvia

Hey Leonie, we were both thinking along the same lines.

Love your Tilda - wish I could see the card in real life. Her red dress must be stunning among all those glittery stars. Gorgeous!
