Add lace ♡ Magnolia only challenge

It's the last Sunday of the month which means it's time for Magnolia only challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog. Out theme this month is Add lace. Easy, right?! Especcially since we all know that The Ribbon Girl store stocks all kinds of pretty laces.

You must use a Magnolia stamp or a DooHickey die for your entry to be entered into the prize draw, this challenge is sponsored by our regular sponsors - a Magnolia stamp all the way from the home of Edwin and Tilda kindly donated by Magnolia of Sweden and a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl

 



I got the design for this slice of cake in silhouette store and then embellished it with lots of laces and flowers. I also used Bohemian Peony Tilda from BoHo collection, which is on pre-order now. I didn't add any entiment because I used the lower part of Maja design's paper where it says 'Sweet little girl'.

 

Tilda was coloured with Distress markers and inks. I added some frantage (white shabby) on the peony.


Here's a list of all items used from The Ribbon Girl store:
