Just Magnolia #8: My first Guest Designer card!

Making Memories - Funky Vintage "Lizzie" 6x6 pad : Core'dinations cardstock 'French Roast' : Tilda with Cherry Dress : Flowers, brads, spacers, ribbon, 3D foam from stash

Morning everyone!

First, I want to say a big sorry for not being 'present' in blogland over this past week. I have been so incredibly busy with it that I haven't had time to breathe, let alone post!!

I was so incredibly lucky to win week 4's challenge over at Just Magnolia, which was not only a fabulous prize donated by The Glitter Garden, but also the position of Guest Designer for June! This means that I get to participate in and create 4 cards for the wonderful team at Just Magnolia (thanks girls!), and this is my first!

So Week #8's challenge is this fabulous sketch by the super talented Rach:

If you participate this week, you could win 6 Copic Sketch Markers, donated by Simon Says Stamp! WOW!

Part of my prize as week 4's challenge winner was a 6x6 Making Memories pad of paper, so I really wanted to use it on my first Just Magnolia creation. The paper is so beautiful that when I tried to add extra embellies, they just didn't look right and clashed with the design of the paper, so I have left it very plain. Hope you likey?

Well, that's it from me for now folks!

Enjoy your Friday....weekend's almost here! Yippee!

Hugs, Sem x
