Happily Ever After.

Good Morning Blogger friends.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far - hopefully lots of crafting for me this afternoon.
Have I told you, I am now a Ribbon Girl!!! Not stopped dancing yet.
It is not my week to post for them but just thought I would drop in a reminder that their Magnolia challenge starts tomorrow.
I had a commission for wedding card. I was determined I was not going to use my favourite stamp again but somehow it landed on my card!!!
The base for the card is a stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. Getting quite a collection now as they are far more affordable than dies. I have covered the stencil with Maja papers and distressed them. All the information on the products used are at the bottom of the post. I have coloured her using Distress Markers.
I masked the image and over stamped the love stamp from Magnolia. I have been a bit braver with the gesso and added it to the papers.

A mixture of flowers - gesso has been added to the darker blue flowers.

Frantage has been added to the image mat and the heart on the ribbon.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
We do doobadoo - Romance
 QKR Stampede - Shaped cards
Pile it on - Hearts/and or flowers
Digi choosday - Love/Romance
DRS Designs - Lovely Hearts
My Time To Craft - Two or more people
Crafty Calender - What's New (stencil die for base card)
Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge - Anything goes/add layers
