A Greeting of Love!

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the get well messages, I only have a bit of a cough left so am nearly at full health once again! Whoopie! Although, I did nearly fall in our pond last night which would have been disastrous! Lol! A fighter jet training exercise of three jets flew from nowhere over our house and I nearly jumped in the pond in fright - those things are damn loud, and they came from nowhere! Peter popped his head out of the window to find me cowering like a frightened sheep! Oh dear... I guess it's aclear indication I would be no good in the RAF! LOL!

Well enough of my blonde moments, this weeks challenge at CI is a colour challenge... Red, White and Pink! I was a bit worried that it might turn out a bit gaudy but am quite pleased with my result this week, here's what I came up with...

The papers are from magnolia, I got mine (vintage rose and vintage lace) from the Glitter Pot and then edged them with walnut stain and sewed. Theres a circle and scalloped cirle in the centre (both nesties). The flowers and leaves are wild orchid crafts.

The beautiful image and sentiment are of course Magnolia. I've used Distress Inks to colour and then I cut along her wings and popped them out a bit to get some dimension. 

 I've added stickles stardust to her wings and underneath her feet. The gems and the ribbon are from my stash and I can't remember where i got these (sorry).

I hope you like her!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia: Anything goes + ribbon
Stamptacular Sundays: Hearts Gone Wild
Papertake Weekly: Have a heart
Scrapbook sisters: My Valentine
Stampin' royalty: hearts hearts and more hearts
Spoonful of Sugar: lets see some love!
Really reasonable ribbon: Red, pink, white and love
Crafty Purple Frog: Valentines day/romance
Cooking it up with Katie: use some red, add some ribbon and don't forget the corners!

Take care everyone and I hope you have a less clumsy week than I seem to be having (blonde moments galore!) Happy crafting! Katy. Hugs. XXX
