Mcmahon Five Designs New Release 6/1/12

I got a package in the mail from McMahon Five Designs today- and I had to make a card! 

 I used a new release digi by Solocosmo called Annalise Lane. I colored the image with Copics- and used a new Technique Junkies technique called Dotty Edges. I used Cryogen White cardstock which has a shimmer to it and takes the color from the Copics beautifully. If you have been thinking of trying this cardstock- check it out now- BIG SALE!
 New at McMahon Five Designs are Memory Box Dies- I used the Butterfly Delights Die for the small butterflies on the Lt border of my card. I used the Fancy Blossom Die and the Tender Leaves Die using the Prima DSP for the flowers.
 I used Prima Songbird DSP for the card and all of the die cuts. I added some Prima lace- love this lace- it is also on sale....  Next, I used Prima Songbird Say it in Pearls- I used just portions of the pearls as you can tell. I distressed to the edges of the DSP and added stitching and Kraft cardstock to bring out the browns in the DSP.

Can you believe it is June already???  McMahon Five Designs is going to give the designers a break for the summer, and we are going to have our releases less frequently-we'll still be around......just not as frequently. Sue will still post flashbacks- so check out the M5D blog and sign up to follow to keep up with the store!

Shelly your card turned out so beautiful. I love all the new dies you used to show off your image. And you have to teach me that new technique you used. I agree with Maxine I wish you had a close-up so we could see all the pretty details you did. Hugs, Fran
