Just Magnolia # 1 - Donalda's Sketch

I'm finally managing to upload the card I made for the first Just Magnolia Challenge. I finished this on Sunday night ready to give to my friend and work colleague on Monday, but I've had no time to sit at the pc and put it on my blog. I certainly think this challenge is going to be a biggie - have you seen how many peeps have entered so far!! Not surprising really with such a talented DT and of course a mega prize to celebrate the launch!

I really enjoyed creating my entry as I got to use a Magnolia image I've never played with before and also my yummy new Wisteria papers from Basic Grey. Donalda's sketch was wonderful to work with and I'm sure I'll be using that layout again. Do hop over to see this new challenge if you haven't done so already, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun!!

Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Basic Grey Wisteria
Embossing - Cuttlebug Strips
Colouring - Polychromatics
Dies - Bosscut Vine
Embellishments - Roses from my stash

Enjoy the rest of your evening and I'll catch up with you all tomorrow.
