I love this sketch and The very first challenge of 'Just Magnolia' is to follow a sketch by Donalda (fab sketch sweetie!) and of course to incorporate a Magnolia stamp. I had such fun making this card ~ thanks ladies!

I got rather carried away with my new Magnolia Spring Stamp Club Collection and used 6 stamps (some are inside, no I'm not having a problem counting!lol)....
Is that a record?
Ok, the butterflies are small.... but still 6 !

I have had the colour combo of green and yellow in my head since I bought the Basic Grey Sugared Collection papers.

The flowers and charm are inspiration from the lovely Bev and the dots on the petals on one of the layers are something Bev did recently and I loved the effect - thanks babes!


Stamps: Magnolia Tilda from Spring Club Stamp Set

Medium: Tim Holtz distress inks, watercolour pencils, Versafine ink, clear embossing powder

Papers: Basic Grey Sugared Papers Collection

Tools: Nesties, EK Success corner punch, very tired brain

Embellishments: flowers from ribbon, brads, spacer and charm from my stash

Isn't she just the most adorable!

I am off to the Stitch & Craft Show today at the Bath & West Showground (that's if I wake up in time! lol). So I just had to make sure my card was finished and posted tonight - well this morning ! Other wise my buddy Bev would never have spoken to me again!

Love the challenge ladies, can't wait for the next one ! Thank you all for all your hard work putting this new blog together and all the wonderful talent !
