magnolia ~ new home!

well another day another challenge , today it is a magnolia challenge , which this week is to use natural materials (fibres, straw, string , handmade paper etc) and eyelets (or brads).
just had to use my new stamps, martha and william, on this card for my friend who moved house this weekend. used handmade paper for the grass, martha`s dress, treestump, outhouse, suitcase (quickutz) , and toothbrush, used string and brad for the sign, and gold card for the key(quickutz),used magnolia birch tree. finished off with some gel pens!! (no glitter today!!) loved using the different papers as all had diferent "bits" inside , like rose petals, bits if wood and , other plant stuffs!! , and the textures are so 3d!!
did lots of crafting yesterday ,which was so nice, feel relaxed now!!!
hope you enjoy your day , try some handmade paper today, it really makes the crafting come alive!! byeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Really really fab card. The detail is brill. I thought you'd cheated and had used glitter until I had a closer look, the glitter pens work well don't they? Glad you a are feeling more relaxed, you could do with more Vanessa time. big hugs Vicki x
