tilda`s swirls!!

well another day another challenge, today i am showing my card for the magnolia challenge , which this week the theme is "swirls". used tilda with lilac`s , magnolia small swirl (thats what she is sitting on), cutllebug flower embossing folder (chalked the flowers and swirls) and ribbon from my stash, finished with glitter. really enjoyed creating this "simple" card (for me), must get the folders out more often!!
gosh it`s friday , and i really must do some house work , i get the washing and ironing done, but the house needs a really good tidy and polish!!! (been doing too much crafting!! , well who see`s the dust??)
hope you all have a great day, and find time to craft today (let the dust stay there one more day!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

oooooo my favourite card ever. I love lilac's. Bring back so many happy memories of my Dad. We had a lilac tree in our garden. Plus my favourite colour. I love the paper you've used goes lovely together, with the ribbon, swirls, and image. I do wish you'd do a rubbish thing one day lol only joking, would just make mine look ok boo hoo lol.
ooooo leave the dust, it's only MIL that notice dust and your MIL crafts so she'll understand. Anyway leave it there, Lewis can practise his writting in it. That's what I do for Mandy lol.
big hugs Vicki oxo's
ps letters below look tricky again this morning, wonder how many times I'll have to put different ones in today lol

Such a cute, sweet image and good colouring.
Yes I buy from UK if store is sending internationally, I would be happy if you happen to see somewhere those metallic emb./charms. Btw "eco" means ecological carton :)))
