Just Magnolia # 12 - Charms





























A very good morning to you!

I'm just in time for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge, where the brief is to use charms on your creations. Now I know you're probably scanning my card in search of a charm and thinking where the heck is it then?! Well I tried something a bit different as I made my charm by stamping a butterfly onto card......... so there we have it, a charm made of cardboard! Not exactly inspired I know but a bit different at least, lol!!

I got to play with my lovely new Lemonade Basic Grey papers again and also embossed and sanded some of Whitewash card (sorry I can't remember who makes this and I'm at work just now so I can't check). The gorgeous Magnolia image is from the Spring range...... still no sign of my Summer kit yet but I'm hoping Mr Postie might just have dropped it off this morning.

Flower are Prima, Brads and Pearls are from my stash and my image has been coloured with Polys. That's me for today then - just off for a tea break now and then I really ought to get some work done!!!

Catch you later and hope you all have a creative day ;o)

Brilliant card Tara. Stunning use of the pearls in the hair. Lol! I had to laugh about the cardboard charm - wicked! Brilliant paper choice too. Love everything about it. Should be over to visit more often now - things are still mad here but I'm learning to control them a bit better.
