Fabulous News.... Sooo Happy!!

Good morning to all you lovely crafters, hope you're all well.
I have some fabulous news that I am just bursting at the seams to tell.
They say good news comes in three's.
Last week I was the random winner of a voucher from the super Ribbon Girls over at
'Lovely Hanglar  or Sweet Magnolia'
 was chosen in the Top 3

Then the super talented Sara asked if I would like to join the Design Team
Happy Happy Happy Dance
Took me all of a millisecond to consider this one
I can't stop smiling.
There is amazing talent on the team and I'm so looking forward to working with them.
My first challenge  is not until the 18th of August but I have made a card using the requirements for the current challenge cos you all know how I lurve my Tilda's.
The Challenge is 'Bingo Card'

If you haven't played a Bingo challenge before its simple just use any 3 items in a row either across ,down or diagonally just be sure to mention which you have chosen in your post please
Please pop over and check it out
Here is mine

 I've used Lace, Pearls and Dies.
Magnolia - Tilda with two Rosettes from the 'Special Moments Collection'. coloured in distress inks, rose highlighted with sakura clear star though it's hard to pick out in photo, then added lots of Shabby Pink Frantage.
Card shape - Go Kreate Frilly
Papers - Papermania, Exquisite and Marianne Beautiful Butterflies, edged with walnut stain
Tim Holtz - on the edge Butterflight (love it)
Magnolia - Tag stamped with Butterfly Kit from the 'Once upon a time' Collection
Sentiment - Art Impressions  stamped onto La La Land Stitched Tabs

Lace and rose ribbon - The Ribbon Girls
Pearls - stash
Off to smile a bit more. Enjoy your Sunday whatever you're doing.
