Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge DT - Bingo! and TOMIC

Friday again already!! I can't believe how fast the weeks of the summer holiday are flying by!! Soon it will be time to go back to school :( -next week is my son's last full week off! It is time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar and this week Donalda has set our challenge of Bingo! I hardly ever seem to find the time to join in with the TOMIC challenge, much to my dismay, and I was determined to do so this week and so I have altered this cotton bud container so that I can enter the TOMIC challenge as they would like to see us recycle something!!

I think I might alter more of these! They're so cute and very handy for all sorts of bits and bobs and will look great on the shelves of my craft room! I have used Magnolia papers to cover the container.

I coloured Tilda with copics and added some stickles to her wings and the heart ornament and then I've popped her onto the doohickey tag.

I went crazy with my flower stash and added lots of gorgeous blooms in various shades of purple along with some blue and pink ones to lift it. The leaves were cut with the rose leaf doohickey.

I added a butterfly to the largest flower which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and then stickled.

I used the lace doohiockey die all around the paper for the lid and the gorgeous gingham ruffle ribbon was a gift from my gorgeous friend Louise! I have added lots of butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch around the sides of the pot and gems around the lid.

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 challenge blog to see the stunning creations from the rest of the team! Thanks for looking! x
