Focus On Magnolia Sentiment

Hi everyone hope you are well, it's a beautiful day down her in the south of England
Over at the  Magnolia stamp Lovers Challenge this week they want us to focus on a "Magnolia Sentiment" which is what I've done here with this card.
I used Paper from Stampin'Up and Prima which I stitched and distressed , I also stitched and distressed a piece of corrugated card that I stamped the sentiment on which was just floating around on my desk.
The Chipboard frame is from Tattered Angel, flowers from WoC everything else is from my stash.
Now I'd also like to enter this card into the Mid~Week Magnolia Challenge 
(which btw I was thrilled to be in the Top 3 this week, thanks girls xx)
This week in their 3rd challenge they have a 1-2-3- theme ,
1 Ribbon ~ on my clock charm
2 Pearls ~ see them up in the top corner
3 Flowers
But I'm not sure if this card qualifies without an image on as it only has a Magnolia Sentiment
(so if it doesn't then just ignore me !! lol)
Have a lovely Day thanks for dropping by

A Stitch in Time

Just a quick visit today as I'm busy at my desk making a couple of cards with Tilda so watch this space !! he he
But as they used to say on Blue Peter "Here's one I made earlier" !!! lol , last weekend in fact
Yes another grown up card !! and no Tilda !!
This one is 8"x8" so a nice big surface to sort of collage onto and let my imagination go wild !!.
I made this with the new paper I bought from Cuddly Buddly it is in fact called Tilda but nothing to do with Magnolia Tilda .
I Love this collection I bought the 12x12 pad and its full of beautiful prints in lovely girly vibrant colours
I added die cuts that I cut this a TH movers and sharpers die , lace seam binding Prima flowers and a handmade glass pearl pin, stamps from MME and The Darkroom
I also machine stitched and distressed the paper then added a few TH tiny attacher staples.
