Just Magnolia.

Thursday, 23 April 2009


I couldn't wait to get stuck into the gorgeous sketch from the very first "Just Magnolia" challenge - and I started to think I wasn't going to have time to do it, but I got there eventually!

Here the card I made for my aunt/godmother for her birthday:


This is the fabby sketch:


I used Tilda with Tag and I used a little hello stamp - I think it's alotta. The scrummy looking bun is also Magnolia - looks good enough to eat (although I was about to colour the icing with the greeny colours and then thought that wouldn't look too appetising!!) The papers I used are Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye. I also added a little glass bead from a local bead shop.
Here's a close up:


Here's the inside - also following the sketch:


I'd just like to thank everyone for their lovely comments. I read them all and it really means a lot to know that someone has gone to the bother of not only looking at my work, but then leaving a comment on it too - so thank you!
