Just Magnolia Challenge Week 4 - Lets Get In Shape

Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. I'm doing a late post tonight as I've been so engrossed in Springwatch. Peace and quiet for my family - I won't budge off the couch for the next 3 weeks!

I did this card a couple of days ago for the Just Magnolia Challenge. I found it quite difficult - way out of my comfort zone which is the usual square card. However, I did stick with it until I'd produced something different. I didn't have a template big enough for an actual card, so I had to use a piece of an old card to draw around for the frame. Hope it looks ok.

Card Recipe:
The image is Magnolia Patch Tilda
I coloured her with Promarkers
The cardstock is Papermill with some Coredinations to back Tilda onto
The flowers are Prima from a Christmas bauble
Lavendar Stickles
Papermania ribbon and brad
Kanban self adhesive gems

I didn't really mean to make a brown and lavendar card when I started out, it just kind of ended up that way. At least it's not square! The flower and butterflies are more sparkly and glitzy than they look on the photo but that's photos for you.

I didn't do an inside to this card because I had such a job with the front I was a bit sick of it to be honest. I'm not really that enamoured with it. I can see I'll have to get a lot more practice in with different shaped cards.

Thanks for dropping by.
