Spellbinders floral ovals card

Hello all 
Welcome back to another post. 
Here is a card i made recently with the spellbinders floral oval die. 
 I made this with a video tute that i saw somewhere long time a go , 
sadly i don't remember who it was from. 
But still it came out very well !
 To cut out this CAS card i used the Spellbinderspaperarts-floral-ovals die. 
Ovals are cut with Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK - Tags (smaller one) and 
The little lace border peaking from the top is cut with
657747 sizzix-sizzlits-decorative-strip-die-regal-edging 

 The design papers are from The Works , UK. Loved this paper pad with cute papers :)
I have used the tilda mini stamp 233-Magnolia mini - Congratulations tilda
And the sentiment is by inkadikado stamps. 

 Finally the tiny tag is made with Prima papers cut with
The gorgeous flowers are from Itsy bitsy , boutique elements .

All black card !

Hi all ! 
Welcome back to another post :) 
I am back yet again with another challenge on the Beyond Grey challenges blog
Now that it was my turn to throw in a challenge ... i kept wondering what to do 
I was sure i wanted a color challenge as we havent had that in a while . 
So an idea struck me why not make a Black card with only little pop of color ? 
So thats how it came to me ... 
But it was by far the most difficult to follow ..... 
So here is the newest challenge !
Oh So Knotty ! 

Now this challenge has 2 parts to it.  (Please read carefully to avoid confusion)

 You are free to make any paper crafted project , card or layout as long as
1. Your project has a KNOT  (or many knots) of some kind on it .
It can be ribbons, twins, fabric, jute or anything that can be knotted . 

2. Your project needs to be a complete black project with only Maroon or shades of maroon color on it, that means Maroon should stand out on black.
Neutrals like white, Kraft and beige are allowed but in limited amount. 
 Now that is sorted , 
Lets welcome back our premium sponsor of 2013 
with a huge round of applause !
Crafters Corner is generously donating RS 500 /- GV to the winner of this challenge !

Lets move on to my inspiration
I have used the 657748 Sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-classical-beauty-baroque-wallpaper-set for embossing the layer on top of the card.
I also sanded the edges to reduce the size of the paper so that the embossed layer is easily visible.
i then went for the chalk board effect with some white pigment ink on the embossed motifs .
Next using the doily that i cut with  659058 sizzix-thinlits-die-set-2pk-doily & doily-border#2
and inked it with black ink just slightly .
 I then stacked some ribbon i had into pleats and pushed it underneath the floral ovals die.

This flower is totally handmade using 659069 sizzix-thinlits-die-set-6pk-butterfly-flowers-lattice 
This flourish is made with Sizzix-sizzlits-die-card-phrases-set
The set has 3 pieces and has a lot to offer !
For the knot part of my challenge i decided to go with net fabric and made a double bow !

Hope u enjoyed my card and
would head over to BGC blog to participate in this challenge !

Im on tilda madness !

 This is my first ever shaker card ! I got inspired by the simply magnolia blog to make one !
They are having a challenge of shaker magnolia cards .

Nothing is a better shaker card material than our very own Pie lane - chunky glitter !!! 
I used the one in periwinkle ! to color my tilda i have used my promarkers and im very happy with the results. Although i still prefer to do my hair with watercolor pencils, Don't have enough pro-markers to blend for the hair.
Here i have used the 658947 Sizzix-thinlits-die-set-2pk-doily-doily-border in a pearly kraft color for some layering. 
Created the shaker center piece with Spellbinders-floral-ovals die.
The tag is cut with Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK - Tags 
One amazing tag die set that has about 4 different tag dies !
And i have also used the  Memory-box-die-whimsy-circle for layering with
Magnolia Doohickey Die - Dragonflies for some wings ! :) 
Do u love my handmade gardenia flower ?
I was experimenting with some papers and i made these in different colors .
The flourish is cut with 657522 Sizzix-sizzlits-die-set-3pk-card-phrases-set
