Simon Says/Sketch Saturday/Magnolia Stamp Lovers

My card today covers 3 challenges in one.

The first Challenge is from Simon Says Photo Inspiration Challenge. The funny thing is, they had posted two pictures, one as a celebration of new members of the design team, and the other was the actual inspiration. However, the celebration photo served as inspiration as well. Here are the pictures...


The picture on the left is the celebration pictures.









The picture on the right is the inspiration.





The second challenge is from Magnolia Stamp Lovers #3 - Buttons or Bows or Both.

The third challenge is from Sketch Saturday #88, and here is the sketch...


Here is my card...
Stamps: Charleston Tilda, Rose Edwin, and Champagne and Candelabra ((Magnolia)
Paper: Watercolor paper, DCWV Stack 6, Red Riding Hood
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink.
Embellishments: Daisy dye cut, Prima flower, handmade roses, Spellbinders labels, buttons, DMC floss, Stickles, rhinestones, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Fiskars Texture Plate.


I water colored Tilda with Distress Inks. I added blue, green and purple to her black dress to give it some dimension. I added the red soles to the shoes to make them Christian Louboutin shoes.

Here is where the champagne bottle comes in. Since I first saw this stamp, I pictured her kicking up something with her foot. When I saw the champagne bottle, that was it. I added the rhinestones for movement.

I hope you enjoyed my creation. Have a great weekend.
