Just Magnolia Challenge # 1............................


Hello,
Well I am so excited as I am now able to post my first card for the brand new challenge over at Just Magnolia!  For our first challenge we have a gorgeous sketch by the one and only fabulous Donalda. Thank you Donalda I loved using your sketch and will definitely use this again. Also, we have the most awesome prize to celebrate the beginning of the first Just Magnolia challenge! 
So without further ado my image has been coloured with distress inks. I have distressed the background and papers with weathered wood and broken china. I have die cut using quickutz my flowers. Distressed them with weathered wood and glimmer misted them. My hearts are die cut using cuttlebug. Distressed and I have stamped dots onto the smaller heart. I have also used stickles on my card to give a bit of sparkle. 
It would be wonderful if you can join us this week and do go check out the rest of the Design Team's stupendous creations they are simply stunning!
Have a wonderful weekend!
love
