All My Favourite Things

Hello again folks and thank you for visiting (I know somebody reads me now - yeah!) You'll never know how happy you have made me!
My card today is a combination of all my favourite things - my favourite colour combination - pink & brown, my favourite papers - Making Memories  Cosmopolitan  Girl and my beloved Tilda stamps from Magnolia. This is the second time this month that I have used these papers (sorry, but you will get used to them! If not these, then my second favourite, the same in blue & brown)

I have combined this creation to 2 very popular challenges, Just Magnolia who have sent us all 'Dotty' with their challenge this week and Friday Sketchers whose very talented Jorunn provided the sketch.  This is the first time I have entered their challenge (there's just not enough hours in the day)
My good friend Lisa has pointed me in the direction of 2 more challenges that this card will fit into (I am compiling a list!) Crafts 4 Eternity has a 'Polka Dot' theme and Crafty Sentiments is asking for 'Your Favourite Things'

Its another first for me too, as its the first time I have covered the inside of a card, I've always loved the idea but if you knew how long this took me you would not believe it!!

The  sentiment is from LOTV, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and everything else is from my stash - oh and I used the Magnolia Doo Hickey dies - Lace Border, Label and Swirl. Shy Tilda is from the new You're so Special Collection available at SirStampalot

 Thanx again for stopping by x Laurie x

Ooh this is gorgeous Laurie!

I love these shades too! The flowers are really beautiful and I love those swirls/flourishes with them. Lovely ribbon and the image is SO sweet! It's just perfect in every way!

p.s. I would believe how long it took you to do the inside! I am the same. I sometimes think I am SO slow doing these cards. Although I am getting a bit quicker (i.e. days rather than weeks LOL)
