M is for ...

   This week at Creative Corner we are asking you to use something on your project that begins with the letter of your first name. I have gone a bit overboard with my example - a Magnolia coloured in shades of Magenta and using lots of Matting and layering, each layer being cut out using a Spellbinders Majestic labels twentyfive die.
   I began by cutting out magenta mirri card and matting this onto tissue paper which I had received as wrapping for a bunch of flowers and matting this onto off white hammered card. The next layer consisted of a paler mirri card matted onto darker tissue paper, obtained from the same bunch of flowers. The final layer was the digi stamp from Sparkle and Sprinkle. This was coloured using Promarkers and the edges dusted with distress ink. I finally added a sentiment which was matted onto the paler mirri card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   ABC - J is for just as you like
   Little Claire's Designs - lots of layers
   Wednesday Creative Inspirations - lots of layers
   Stamping Sensations - use those dies and/or punches
   Digi Sketch - floral
   Fab'n'Funky - flower power
   Party Time Tuesdays - die cut
   Allsorts - spring blossoms
   In the Pink - digital delight
   Catch the Bug - springtime
