Button, Bows & Bling

This is going to be so quick again, I need to get my glad rags on and do my hair cannot watch the Royal Wedding looking scruffy, getting Mum up early so she doesn’t miss anything, cannot wait to see Katharine's Dress  I am sure it will be very elegant wonder who the designer is.  I wish William and Kate a wonderful day and a long and happy life together.
It’s  Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge time and this week the challenge is Buttons, Bows and Bling.
We have two sponsors this week – The Ribbon Girl and The Cutting Cafe' so double the chance to win a prize.


I ordered this new hAnglar and stAnglar last week and it arrived within 4 days what a brilliant service, I love this set, Copics have been used again and I have broken the habit of a lifetime and used no Backing paper or Flowers on this card.  Just in case you cannot make out the bling I have used a lovely rhinestone Heart Ribbon Slide from Wild Orchid Crafts in the middle of the bow.


I turned on Create and Craft yesterday and saw a lady from The Ribbonbox demonstrating with Metal Mesh Ribbon and realised I had bought some of this ages ago and never used it, so after searching my disgustingly untidy drawers and boxes I found it amd made the two Bows on this card.


Not many colours used  on this image but here they are for you:

Flesh W02, E01, E00, E000,
Hair E17, E15, E13, E11
Clothes: B95, B93, B91, T0, T1, C1, C00

and finally just a little sneak peek of  the next release from Lili of the Valley available from 11th May, this is a Little Boy and Boy Bear collection absolutely perfect for Fathers Day, everytime we bring out a new release I am amazed how they just get better and better, you are really going to love this one and I know lots of you have been waiting for some more Boy images.


I will be back later today (after the TV coverage and a surfeit of Wedding Celebrations) to show you the complete card and colours.

Enjoy this happy day
