Just Magnolia #1: Tilda with Flowers

Click to enlarge image
G'day everyone!

So sorry I haven't posted a card for almost a week, but both my mojo and my inspiration have taken a little holiday together! They've sent me a postcard saying that they're having a lovely time, so in the meantime I've soldiered on without them! LOL!

As I'm sure you're all aware by now, there is a brand new challenge blog called Just Magnolia. It's a weekly Friday challenge blog and the only rule is that you have to use a Magnolia image! Their first challenge is a wonderful sketch by Donalda, which I have used for this card. I just about managed to squeeze all the elements in, as my image is rather large, LOL! Make sure you hop on over to Just Magnolia and check out the DT cards - they are absolutely stunning!

As I've used 3 Magnolia stamps to create a wee scene, I can also enter this card into this week's challenge #28 over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is ... "create a scene"!

Today's brand new challenge #57 over at Cute Card Thursday is "getting edgy" where they would like you to "either tear, sand, distress or sew the edges of your card". I have distressed and inked the edges of both the background patterned paper and the image, so I hope this counts!

Have a great day, whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Sem x
