Crafty Sunday

Hi Everyone,
Well this morning when I got up I had no intention of entering any challenges, but when I had a look around the blog world my brain went into overdrive and that was it! I have spent all my Sunday morning crafting, and what a lovely way to spend a Sunday lol.
I have created a card with a Magnolia stamp called Tilda with Hawaii Flower from the Butterfly Dreams Collection and I must say she is one of my favourites, and she fits perfectly with the MDUC flutterbys Challenge, the girls would like to see butterflies this week.
The lovely girls at Bunny Zoe Crafts Monthly Challenge would like to see Easel Cards and you still have heaps of time to enter this one, while you are there check out the candy on offer and all the new products that are coming in, it’s all very exciting YAY. Ok back to the card, the brown DP is digi from cuddly buddly and the pink DP is from Kaisercraft Blushed collection ( it’s an oldie but a goodie ), the CS is Bazzill.
Tilda is coloured with copics( list at end of post ) , the beautiful flowers are from WOC, I really love those browns ones they are called Walnut colour and I used a MS Branch punch. The borders are done with a Magnolia Doo Hickey die Old Swedish Lace. I used a lace doily from my stash with spellbinders Circle Hearts Die although it got hidden a bit with flowers . The white lace is from the Craft Queen, and I can’t remember where I purchased the butterfly charm.
InsideHere’s the inside, with the very pretty lace butterfly which is also from the Craft Queen.
Just Magnolia would like to see funny sentiments this time, and to be honest I had a bit of trouble with this one, but I came up with this
Verseand turned it into a little tag to go in the butterfly pocket, or you could always take the tag out and put a gift voucher in there instead.
