Bizzy Becs January challenge

Hi all of you stampers, i know you have probably been thinking that i am on the missing list, boy have i been busy.  My children are on summer holidays and due to go back to school towards the middle/ end of this month, sure its not legal to give the kids so much time off from school.  To top that off, my sons wedding is looming ever larger than life and i HAVE to get his wedding invites done, like yesterday.
Well enough excuses and on to my card for the newest challenge on Bizzy Becs store challenge blog , this month the challenge is a recipe 3 flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.
for my card i had to use the new image from the latest Magnolia kit, she hasnt been released as a single image yet so we dont know what she's called.  I am just crazy for my Magnolia images and thought that this color combo worked really well, even although purples are not really a color that i use often this dp just called for the purple and green combo.
My image was colored with copics and got a good going over of stardust stickles and then her balloon had to have some dimensional glaze just to make it pop! The sentiment is an old sentiment from WOJ, the pearl flourishes were made using flat backed pearls which can be found at Bizzy Becs store aswell as all these flowers.  I used one of my NS dies for the inside sentiment on my card and looped some ribbon throught the lace bit for some added detail, so ended up adding a second ribbon to my card, he he

have a great day

    I'm sure you'll come up with something amazing for your son's wedding.

  29. Oh Paola~ I really like it! I love the colors and that little Tilda is absolutely adorable with her little balloon!!! Just perfect for a birthday card. You did such a fabulous job coloring her!!
    I have not had time to stamp or blog for a long time and I really miss it, hopefully things will straighten our soon and I can enjoy it again. We just had a wedding, the week before Christmas....I know YIKES! But we made it special and took the holidays a little slower this year. Good luck with the invites, I am sure they will be beautiful!!! Enjoy your summer...wish it were summer here!
