Just Magnolia and Hanglars - Eyes Down

Howdy - Ok.. so you are saying Eyes Down? What? I know I did the same thing. But really it is totally fun! A sort of tic-tac-toe of challenges. LOL There is a chart over at Just Magnolia and Hanglars Challenge. And the challenge is all up to you! Pick three across, down or diagonally then make a project with those three items. Totally Cool huh?

I chose Distressing - Flowers - Paper Piecing

I did the paper piecing first. This is so fun, brings out the child and paper dolls for me :0) I used one of my new Hanglars, one cuz she hadn't been inked up yet, and two cuz she is larger and more fun to "dress up" I then cut out her feet and the bottom of her dress, and ran it through with a circle Nestie to cut the rest out. Sort of as if she is sitting in the bottom of the circle. OH .. and the rest is colored with my Copics -
For my card I went with October Afternoon papers again. I just am so in love with these papers!! I distressed everything on the edges and then inked them, and sewed down to a dark brown card stock mat. I also used a Papertrey Ink satin ribbon... hmm wonder if that broke the rules using ribbon too? Uh OH.. may get a slap on the hand for it, but I do love it :0)

So I have the Distressing, and she is Paper Pieced ... so that leaves my flowers!

Love them!!! Ok, so I have had the two Martha Stewart Hydrangea punches FOREVER - the one larger flower, and then the three smaller in one punch. Got them on clearance ages ago. I don't think I have ever really used them. Well.. I will now! Look how awesome these came out. I used Core'dinations card stock and sanded the edges and folded the petals up. Then attached small pearls for the centers. A few MS Branch punches for the leaves and I totally really love these! So need to use my stash more!

Now you go and play with the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge! Too fun this week... and GREAT prizes!!!

Great card. Love her dress, love those Oct. Aft. papers. I have 3 pads now and NEED more ! LOL. Also have the M.S. punch, unused. Maybe I need to start a dust it off day for myself. :) I will be back in the morning to see what the critters are up to. Hugs...

Love this card. If you don't mind me asking-where did you get the hangler stamps. I would love to get some of these but I can't find anywhere to buy them? Love your coloring and the LO is fabulous. Great card:)
