Classy & Fabulous... Coco Chanel

Morning all!

I couldn't wait till tommrrow to show you my latest magnolia creation! My buddy Shannon sent me a pressie for helping her design and set up her website (a maggie castle background stamp!!) how sweet!! and i absolutly love it!!!

So much so as soon as i got up yesterday i was straight in the craftroom ink in hand to play!


I adore the background it's beautiful and so lovely to colour (even tho it did take me nearly 2 hours just to colour the whole image) totally worth it, really enjoy colouring totally chills me out! The images are coloured with a mix of promarkers and prismacolor pencils (oh how i neglect those! naughty me!).

I thought i would use princess tilda to go with the castle for my first attempt as she's one of my favourite magnolias and so pretty!!

My wild orchid crafts flower order also arrived yesterday so it's flowers galore in my craftyroom, I have to say i'm pretty fussy when it comes to flowers for cards they really do have to be good quality as i've been disapointed before by some companys flowers are totally naff! BUT i have to say.... I totally love wild orchid crafts flowers they're really made very well and not flimsey or anything!

The Sentiment is from my Coco Chanel stamp sets i adore these sentiments, and haven't used them for got to be getting on for two years eeeeeekkkk!! naughty!! to be honest i forget i have them!! lol

I also got to crack out the gorjuss papers i brought before christmas my minds eye laundry line, i love these and soooo sad they've been discontinued! boooo!!!

I've added some simple pink tiny gems and sparkly silver heart tiny gems to the corners of my card and lots of glitter everywhere including the banister!!

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges this week:

*Pile it on - Say it with style
