7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Recipe

Two weeks have flown by and it's time for another challenge at 7 Kids College Fund challenge blog. This time we have a recipe for you:
2 Patterned papers
3 Flowers
Something Sparkly

I needed a baby card so decided to use WILLOW HODING BABY from Whiff of Joy Stamps Wedding and Baby Collection.

She is coloured with Distress Inks - it's been a long time since I last used those.The sparkles to the image and flowers were added with Stickles Diamond. I'm all out of Stickles Stardust - I suspect it's going to be my next purchase, lol

The papers I used are from OLIVIA 6X6 PAPER PAD by Basic Grey and the flowers are from my stash - don't know who manifactured those. Lace and ribbon were also something I just found on my ribbon rings.

The frame I used is from FRAMEABILITIES SCALLOPED EDGE FRAMES dies from Spellbinders and the text is cut out with NESTABILITIES LABELS 6 from Spellbinders. I used skinny ribbon around the frame, just to give a little extra detail.

And just a little shout-out from newly-magnoliafied Tilda fan - 7 Kids College Fund has a new Magnolia collection COZY AUTUMN on preorder HERE. Have a look, there's some cute autumnal images but also the most adorable baby and family stamps! I know my wish list alright:

I especially love the brother and sister - awwwww!!!

Don't forget to check out the inspirational work of our DT and get your project started - the prize is fabulous!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
