Magnolia-licious dt

Time again for another Magnolia-licious challenge and i am your host again this week.
I found this image on the net and loved it, sure by now you know that i have a weakness for pinks and shabby chic/ anything pretty.
For my card i used:  #532 Romantic window and #377 Travelling Tilda available for purchase from Magnolia-licious store where you will get amazing service from Diana aswell as discount.
My image was colored with copics, sorry i know i have gotta try and remember to add my colors, i just had to add loads of my teeny tiny pearls, i just love these, and keep your eyes peeled as i am gonna be sharing soon, as really i just have more than any one person should own.
I distressed all my edges for the shabby feel and added a doily for the chic bit, there is also a bit of hessian peeping out there and cotton lace, finally a lush piece of tulle that i found in my sewing kit.  Last but not least flowers and a couple of hat pins made by moi.
Please do come and join us the girls on the team as per their usual style of fabulous have some awesome creations to inspire you.

Hope you are all having a wonderfully creative week

Paola.
