Just Magnolia - First Birthday Celebration
Hi everyone, I think I may just manage to make this challenge by the skin of my teeth!
As Just Magnolia are celebrating their 1st birthday and because I'm a HUGE Tilda fan, I really wanted to join in with this challenge and I've been trying to get my card ready and join in their bloghop for nearly a week now. Still, better late than never.
The sketch was from the lovely Mina and was an absolute joy to use (I shall be using this again and again) and there was also the optional twist of 'Thank You' which I decided to go for.
* Image - Magnolia 'Tilda with Tulips'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Laura Ashley and K & Co
* Mat - Nellie Snellen frame
* Everything else from my stash
I used my distress inks to edge the mat while it was still in the cuttlebug, but I don't think I did a very good job of it. I've seen this effect used on other blogs and it looks much better than mine, ah well, practice makes perfect.
I hope you like this as much as I do (I NEVER normally like my cards!) and I'll be back again on Friday with my DT card for Crafty Ann's challenge.
