100th Challenge Anniversary - Marvelous Magnolia challenge - Insta Tilda

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Well I'm back from my holiday with my parents and what a lovely trip it was. I was totally spoilt and Mum and I had a good mooch around the craft shops and spent a few pennies (well quite a few), plus had some gorgeous lunches out. It came to an end far too soon, but I really did have a wonderful time so thank you Mum and Dad.

Today we have a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this week its a special one as it is our 100th challenge anniversary.  The theme is an easy peasy 'Anything Goes'. 

To celebrate both teams are giving away their cards, some will also include a small gift. This week the Dreamy team are posting theirs and the Romance team will post theirs next week, so if you would like to win my card and a surprise gift, there are  a couple of easy steps to follow:

You must be a follower of the Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog and leave a comment.
You must be a follower of my blog (or any of my teamies if you would like to win one of their cards), just leave me a comment to say that you would like to win my card. (I will draw a winner once the challenge has ended and post it on my blog).

 We also have some DT positions up for grabs, so if you would like to join this lovely team, you have two weeks to create a card (using a Magnolia stamp) and post it on the challenge blog, remembering to post it under the correct heading (Beginner, Intermediate or Expert) and don't forget the challenge is 'Anything Goes'. 

On with my card, I've had a little play and made a stair step design. I coloured up Insta Tilda with  a combination of DI reinkers and markers. Most of the dies and the stamped film strip are from Noor Design, but the camera is a Magnolia Doohickey die.  The beautiful embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. 

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Top: Victorian Velvet
Trousers: Faded Jeans
Shoes: Gathered Twigs
Camera: Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet

 To go along with our celebrations we are having a two week blog hop, here is a list of the very talented DT members from the Dreamy team, the Romance team will post theirs next week:

That's it from me today, don't forget if you would like to be in with a chance of winning my card and a surprise gift, then let me know by leaving me a comment.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
