Sakura Tilda ...


I won the 'Pink' challenge in July over at Simply Magnolia and that gave me a wonderful Guest Design spot for September, yay!  

Simply Magnolia Challenges

So the challenge for Simply Magnolia is 'Butterflies' nice and easy me thinks.  So here in the UK we have had many months now with very little rain, especially here in the South East so I thought I need to a fan to help cool me down whilst crafting.


So I have used Sakura Tilda (sorry she is an old girl so I cannot find a current link for her) and also
the Sakura Lantern dies from Magnolia/Doohickey.  Bamboo is from the Doohickey Box Vol 4 Le Jardin.  Papers are from Nitwits, hand stitched, tassles are again from a Doohickey Box this time Vol 5 Celebration, fan several layers cut on my Silhouette Cameo. Coloured with Promarkers, the butterflies are cut using the free dies from Die Cutting Essentials Issue 37 still available at Cutting Edge Crafts HERE
