A new challenge as started this week "JUST MAGNOLIA'S".....and as the title say's it's just for Magnolia stamps,well done girls for setting this up and must say a DT line up of extremely talented crafters.To get the ball rolling this week there's a sketch to follow,a lovely sketch by one of the DT Donalda...thank you Donalda a great sketch to work with,i have rotated it simple because of the sunflower paper i wanted to use.
So out come my much neglected Magnolia's,grabed me a few hours me time and made a card.
I wouldn't call this a pretty card by any means...just a fun card,something alittle different for me i,can't make up my mind whether i like it or not.....i'll let you decide,good or bad let me
know,and don't be afraid to be truthful i've got broad shoulders,i can take

Stamp :- Magnolia "Tilda with sunflower"
Colouring medium :- Promarkers,Prisma's and Sansador....alittle Sakura for the spots on her dress.
Papers :- DCWV Spring collection...from QVC.
Flowers :- A mixture of Prima's and Papermania fabric flowers.
Brads :- Basic Grey "Cupcake"
Ric Rac ribbon from stash.
Doodlebug Rub ons "All mixed up" for the sentiment.

I don't think it's possible for you to make a card that I wouldn't like San, it's perfection in my eyes! Such a cute Tilda and your colouring is gorgeous! I love how you've created a little scene out of the sketch with the gorgeous sunflower paper, so creative. Hope you're having a good weekend and glad you had some 'me' time today. Hope to enter this new challenge too and am just thinking about starting to colour an image but it's a bit late now. Poss tomorrow. Speak soon, Chris x
