Just Magnolia # 27 - Bright and Zingy....


Good morning peeps!

Sunglasses required this morning I think..... not because we're having lovely sunny weather but because of my card, lol! This one is for Just Magnolia's Bright and Zingy Challenge and I was persuaded to use my Basic Grey June Bug papers for once! I have to buy everything new Basic Grey paper pack as it comes out but I must admit I've struggled a bit with June Bug, just as I did when Lime Rickey came out. Anyway, I was determined to get over this mental block so this card is my result...... the reason for the sentiment is that I've sent the card to Sharon who turned the big 50 very recently!

I used a Tilda from the Autumn Kit and decided to paper piece her as I love this effect so much (and it's great if you're not in the mood for too much colouring, hee hee)! The flowers are Prima and I used a MS border punch for the white panels.

I'm keeping this short as I'm a busy bee at work today, so I'll toodle off and will catch you all later. I really appreciate you stopping by for a nosy today and would like to say a huge thank you to those who take time out to leave me a comment ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx
