Magistical Memories meets GCD

Hello everyone and welcome to the middle of the week. I hope that all of you are having a great week so far and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Today I've got a card to share that will be the new colors of my new craft space. I'll be hopping along to get it all ready, but no time limit has been set yet.

For this card I used quite a bit of paper from the GCD Artsy Urban collection as well as the super sweet Flower from Magistical Memories. There are so many beautiful chipboard pieces at Magistical, that I find myself gravitating to use them ALOT!!! And what would a sweet project be without some Helmar adhesive. This baby is put together with Zapdots and the adhesive runner

The ribbon I used for the card is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. White Leaves, Grey Diamond Ombre and Silver Grey Organza .

Now where is the card you ask? Here she be. This is one of my favorites to date I think.

And a close up of the flower. I created the look on the flower by first painting it with black and pearl paint dauber. Then applied Mustard seed Distress stickle to the top. Easy peasy!

I think these colors are seriously going to kick up my mojo in the new space. Everytime I create something from grey, yellow and white, I smile ear to ear.
Now on to the crazy list of challenges that I've entered this ray of sunshine into

Flutterby Wednesday-use flower with winged creature
Crafty Creations- encouragement
Flourish timeless Tuesday- Use chipboard
Paper Take - Use Flowers
Mojo Monday- sketch
Ooh-La-La- Bright and Cheery
If the Shoe Fits - rain or shine
Raise the Bar- yellow gray white

Thanks a bunch for stopping by. Tonight we are taking the children to the circus. They don't know yet, so I'm sure they will be beyond excited when we get there.
