Magnolia Down Under challenge DT card

Woohoo! It's time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge!! This week we'd like to see charms on your card, so it's nice and easy to join in this week! I have used Iris' sketch at Roses on Paper challenge so I'm entering this card into their challenge too. The sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to make one of these wallet cards, it's my first one! The papers are from the K&Co Madeleine collection and I've distressed them with peeled paint distress ink and stickles. I've also stitched all the edges.
I coloured Robin Hood with distress inks. I've stamped a Stempelglede flourish around the edge and stitched and stickled!

I cut the felt flowers using Tim Holtz' tattered florals die from white felt and then coloured them with peeled paint distress ink. The star button is from my stash as is the raffia. The leaves were punched with a McGill fern punch.

The cute owl charm is from Whiff of Joy. I added another felt flower, the button is Basic Grey.


The tag at the top is a nestability fancy tag folded in half with pearls added from the Hobby House.
I have left the pull out card fairly simple - lots of room for a message! I've stamped some Stempelglede stamps around the edges with olive distress ink. Again I've stitched around the edges. The back is covered with the same fleur de lys paper as the wallet.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under challenge! Pop over and see the rest of the DT's cards, they're truly stunning as always! x

A beautiful card Jane. Love the colours and the Robin Hood theme. I love a man in green! Although not in tights lol Beautiful details - the tag is wonderful - not seen that before and the little owl is cute. I've never tried a wallet card but as usual you've inspired me to have a go! Is a Maid Marian card next??
