Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - 2nd Birthday Blog hop!!!

If you're looking for my Tickled Pink Stamps blog hop post please click here.

We are celebrating our 2nd birthday at Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week and to celebrate we're having a blog hop with fabulous prizes all over the place!! You should have reached me from the fabulously talented Fran's blog, if not you may want to start at the beginning at Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog so you don't miss out! To be eligible you will have to enter the challenge though as well as hopping along!! Our challenge is "two" - that means everything you use must be in twos - including images!!! I have to say I love this sort of challenge and really enjoyed making this card with two scrummy new stamps I got recently!!! I have used Prima Annalee papers distressed with walnut stain.


How beautiful is this gorgeous ribbon hair Tilda - I just love her!! I've coloured her with copics and popped her onto the equally gorgeous couch which I embossed in gold before adding a few touches of colour to the frame and some shading to the cushions VERY carefully with copics so as not to ruin my tips by touching the embossing!!

So my twos are: two different papers, two Prima aida fabric flowers, two tiny roses, two die cut leaves, two die cut angel wings, two pearls, two gold pins and two pieces of lace........

Here's one strip of lace - have you spotted the other one?? It is peeping from underneath Tilda's skirt as a lace petticoat!!

Hope you like it! Now I will be having a little candy for one lucky person who comments on my blog but I'm afraid I have been very disorganised and haven't actually got it yet but at least I suppose it will be a nice surprise LOL! I will pop a picture on when I get it. Now it is time to pop over to the amazingly talented Janiel to see what gorgeous creation she has for you! Thanks for looking and happy hopping! x
