Easy peasy card

Good morning everyone! The clouds are heavy over Stockholm today and rain is falling down, it feels like fall is coming, there´s a chill in the air. I don´t mind as I can stay inside and craft :)

This card is an easy peasy one, cardstock and DP from Funky Fairies, image is Magnolia, I´ve used Memories ink for image and Distress inks for paper distressing, thread DMC, brad The Scrapbook Store, ribbon and buttons from my stash, I´ve coloured the image with watercolour pens. I love that background paper and wanted it to show, so the card is a bit bare this time.

Cupcake Craft Challenges: one ribbon, two DP:s and three buttons
Magnolias challenge: ribbons and bows (although I don´t know if my bow is bowish enough)
Spoon full of sugar challenge: distressing

I´m very happy for your comments because then I can come and visit you too.

Have a great day,

    Love the blues of this card and seen some very nice work on your blog as well, thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.

    have only been to Stockholm once and it rained then as well ! But it was lovely, we walked up the cobbled streets from the port where we were docked to the Palace.
