Cute Card Thursday #35.....

....is fairies and angels. I had a whole other card planned but then I went on a shopping spree at Korin's and when I got back from her house my Magnolia's were in the mail!! Nothing gets a mojo going than new stuff!! I got some of this awesome paper. Every piece is some shade of brown but the other side is a color. So when I ran it through the cuttlebug then sanded it the color from the other side showed through!! I love the way it looks and it matched the colors from the new Christmas K & Co. papers perfect!!I got the music background idea from a card Rach did! It was gorgeous and I had to give it a try. (Thanks Rach!!)

Paper: K & Co. Core-dinations CS ~ SNSS
Stamps: Magnolia ~ Christmas, Aged Music ~ CHF
Inks: distressed inks, twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima (SNSS), ribbon ~ Micheal's, mini-pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts


Besides making this card today I raked up 25(80 gallon bags) of leaves. The whole time I was thinking "I wish money grew on trees!!" Like my parents used to ask when I was little (LOL)!!!

Well thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Oh my this is such a stunning card!
I love the way you have embossed your core'dination card and that music looks fabulous.Your little Tilda looks so beautiful I just love your colouring.
Love your picture with all your leaves bagged up. I dread this time of year last year we took 170 bags to the recycle dump. Not funny.

If money grew on tree I had bought some more magnolia stamps. I went to an event where Magnolia herself sold the stamps. It made me very greedy.LOL But I am very happy with the stamps I bought.
Your card is lovely I like your music background very much.Your coloring is wonderful. Hugs marja
