DT - Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Goes

Here's a quick reminder that you have nearly a week to still enter
 magnificent challenge which this time round is
 Anything Goes!
So whatever Magnolia project you've got on the go at the moment would fit the criteria and we love seeing how creative you can get, so what are you waiting for?

This is a card I have made for my OH's birthday which is coming up next week.....

I must admit, it's totally different from what I usually make - no flowers or anything girly, but I enjoyed making it just as much! Most of the papers are Stampin Up, I think the newspaper print might be Bazzil but not sure. I masked Castle Guard Edwin with Afternoon Tea plant, coloured the scene with distress inks, cut out using Spellbinders labels twenty three and layered up with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square. I heavily gold frantaged around the image and on the Fleur de Lis frame. I machine stitched the newspaper layer and used SU's spiral punch on it too. The sentiment and mini tags are also SU. As well as using Magnolia's lovely fence DooHickey, I also used the flag pole DooHickey, cut from thin gold metal. The top shape of the card is part of a Go Kreate die.

You can't really see but, I did a bit of a cross between decoupage and paper piecing on Edwins belt to make it stand off the image and I added glossy accents to his shoes.
Thanks for visiting today it means so much! Check out my teamies inspiration - it's all so gorgeous!
