Magical Monday New Challenge & Freebie

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
To all my wonderful followers, DT Sisters, crafting mates, and Friends

It Magical Monday at There's Magic In The Air/Paper Cupcakes with a freebie and a new challenge.  Our very talented and sweet teamie, Gloria,  brings us the challenge this week.  Gloria wants us to create a shaped or die cut card of any kind and add a little texture or embossing of any kind.  Main thing is she wants you to be creative and have fun!

My card was cut out using a pattern, since I don't have any Grand Nesties yet, and distressed with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  DP is Basic Grey, K&Co, & Bazzill.  The image, Wildflower Bouquet, is designed by Nina of PCC as is the ticket from the Valentine Ticket Set. The bouquet was printed twice and cut out prior to being colored with Copics, pearl centers, then added with dimensional tape to the embossed Spellbinders die cut.  MS punch was used for the center add on and pearls are from stash.

You may use any image you chose but if you use a previously acquired  PCC image or the freebie you will be entered into the drawing twice for this weeks prize.  Sure hope you will be able to join us this week for this fun challenge.  Please head on over to the TMIA/PCC challenge blog to pick up your freebie and to see the fantastic designs by the DT.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I can come visit real soon to see what's new with you.  Been a little under the weather this week so haven't posted or been around to see any of you but I promise this next week will be better.
"Hugs" Carol
