Magnolia Bunting

Good morning all,
I have had to schedule this post as I am up to my neck in yummy crafty goodies as I am exhibiting at the Suffolk Papercraft Show in Bury St Edmonds.
Anyway time for another fab challenge over at Totally Tilda and this time the theme is 'Bunting' so we want to see lots of flags on your projects. We are sponsored this time by lovely Nikki at unny Zoe Crafts, so well worth a go.

Sorry this post is a bit photo heavy but grab a cup of coffee and I hope you enjoy having a browse. It's not easy to see in the pics but all flags have been stitched and edged with diamond stickles. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the edge of each of the rosettes and distressed each with Pumice Stone DI. All of the yummy Magnolia images are coloured with my Promarkers and some also have a little stickles on them.
All of the beautiful DP's are from the First Edition Collections 'Boho Chic' and 'New Leaf''. I have just got this scrummy lace in the shop and I feel it may be used quite a lot!!

Close Ups of each letter

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - #153 'Lots of Layers'
Simon Says - 'Joy's Summer Inspiration'
Simply Magnolia - 'Garden Blooms' (All papers for Tilda flags are floral, and I have used a lovely Tilda holding flowers)
Deep Ocean - #27 'Sewing Faux or Real'
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - 'Distress Challenge' (Everything on this banner has been distressed using a Tim Holtz distress tool and then edged with Pumice Stone DI)
