Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge DT - Buttons, Bows and Blooms

Time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge! This week our theme is Buttons, Bows and Blooms. My card is one of my "rejects" for the recent Magnolia Ink competition. I don't really like how it turned out at all - so only sent my other entries - but I didn't have time to make a card for this challenge before I went on holiday and it happened to fit - otherwise you would never have seen it LOL! The papers are all by Magnolia distressed with walnut stain distres ink.
I have masked Tilda onto the peppermint cane and coloured both with copics. This was one of the reasons I was unhappy with my card - I think this particular Tilda looks far too big on the cane!

I used a selection of flowers from my stash. The large on is by Prima and the tulips are by Magnolia.

I added a gorgeous satin bow and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts at the other side.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations! Thanks for looking! x

Such a lot of stunning makes, Jane! Everyone a treat - beautifully coloured and perfectly embellished. I particularly love this little cutie. I just bought the candy cane stamp and I'm itching to use it. And I also loved your sweet honey Sugar Nellie card. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday! Hugs, Lesley
