Just Magnolia Challenge #2

Hi everyone, well we're back from our travels to far flung Suffolk and I've been experiencing major withdrawal symptoms from blogging and crafting, so I was thrilled to see that challenge #2 was up on the Just Magnolia blog.
The theme this week is - PINK and GREEN - so anything goes as long as your creation is done with these colours and has a Magnolia image on. Do pop over and take a look at the gorgeous cards that the DT have created.
It's no wonder that I love everything they do, as most of these people were already in my 'favourites' list and those that I had managed to miss before will be going on my list asap!

I've chosen to use a newer Tilda today, I do love the way she just seems to get prettier with each new kit.

Card Details:
* Image - Tilda with large bouquet of roses
* Colouring medium - Letraset Promarkers
* Backing papers - K & Co
* Punch - Martha Stewart Doily Lace
* Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
* Embellishments, brads and ribbon - from my stash

I loved using this colour combination, it's so fresh and summery, I hope you like the card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thank you to all my visitors who've been leaving such lovely comments for me. I've already started visiting some of my favourite blogs again, I'm just sorry that it's been so long since I last visited you all, but I'm enjoying catching up with all your delicious creations.

By the way, I've given my blog a much needed facelift, I wanted something light and fresh, but very unfussy. It took me absolutely ages to find the sort of thing I was looking for so I hope you like it!

This is just gorgeous Chrissie. The layout is great (I'm still waiting for my Doily punch to arrive) and the wavy strip down the left is so clever. A very beautiful card.
